Circle Letter 10/30/2015

October 30, 2015      

Dear Families,
A Happy Halloween wish to all of you.  Tonight certainly sounds trick-or-treat-fun-filled… lots of good times and delicious candy too. Don’t forget the Portsmouth Parade tomorrow night as well…!  The kids will have a lot to write about after their trick or treating experiences, no doubt! 
        The Grade 3 fall festival was a good time and certainly a nice break from all of the classroom work. We rotated through a variety of activities… Get the scoop from your kiddo!. And of course a big thank you to the families who were able to provide contributions for this grade level activity… and to those moms who were able to come in and volunteer.  We appreciate all the support.
       Our class took Unit 2 math assessment on Wednesday and on Thursday students made corrections as needed while reflecting on their skills.  This test will be placed into student portfolios and come home with the report card in early December.
       We have begun our studies of the Human Body, and the Digestive System specifically.  It has been an interesting few days with observation and inquiry… as we study the parts of the mouth and discuss how the parts interact and function.  Be sure to ask your kiddo about how these parts, including your nose, work together.
