Welcome to Ms. Taylor's 3rd Grade Class!

I am so excited to learn alongside your student this school year. My focus this year is to help your student become more independent in their academics and problem solving skills. Students will have to learn how to complete tasks independently, stay organized and turn things in on time. Please check out our weekly announcements and email me with any questions or concerns at 
ataylor@rivermill-academy.org


  

Weekly Announcements 11/15:

  1. Our class absolutely ROCKED their mid-module 3 math test this week. Every student in our class passed with a 70% or higher. We shared our good new with Mr. Dishmon on Thursday and agreed that if everyone in the class passes their end-of-module 3 test (next Friday) we will have a math celebration. We have been working so hard on our multiplication/division facts and we are so proud of our hard work. It has paid off!
  2. Ask your student about multiplication karate! Ms. Gobel came to our classes on Tuesday to explain a new math challenge third through fifth grade will be participating in this school year. Your student has the chance to earn their double black belt in multiplication facts AND get their picture posted in the front lobby.
  3. We are also doing our own multiplication incentive in the classroom with ice cream. We will be quizzing students on their facts randomly and the more your student practices at home, the faster they will pass off. (Ask your student about it ;)
  4. If you, or someone is coming to have lunch with your student at school on Friday’s, please be sure they are on time. It is River Mill policy that after five minutes of lunch, students who do not have a lunch will charge their account for a hot lunch. Our schedule does not allow time for students to extend their lunch time if their lunch delivery is running late.
  5. Next week will be our last week of Tuesday tutoring until after Winter break. With a short week coming up and the craziness that December brings, we will resume tutoring when we get back for the new year.
  6. Field trip information is coming home today! We will be going to the Millis Health Center in High Point on Tuesday, December 10. We will be wearing our class t-shirts on this day. Please make sure your student’s permission slip is signed and returned with money by Tuesday, December 3rd.
  7. We will also be going on our bowling field trip this upcoming week, on Thursday, November 21. We will leave River Mill at 11:45 and will return around 1:45. Students will need to wear socks and tennis shoes to school that day in order to participate. We will not be allowing students to change shoes at school.
  8. We would like to do a “Friendship Feast” with our class on Tuesday, November 26. This would be a potluck type meal with our class on this day. In order to do this however, we will have to have a commitment from parents who are willing to send in things for the feast. (kid-friendly food such as mac n cheese, chicken nuggets or mini turkey sandwiches?, fruit, mashed potatoes, corn (this is a class favorite), rolls, butter, pumpkin pie, cookies, plates, napkins, cutlery, cups, drinks (not soda-please!). If you would like to help, please respond to this email and I will send out a Sign-up Genius link on Monday if we have enough parents to send things in.
  9. Progress Reports are also coming home today. There is no grade for Social Studies for this quarter yet. We will start a unit sometime next week. Please be sure to sign your student’s progress report and return it as soon as possible.
  10. There will also be another set of math sheets coming home today for extra practice in Take-Home folders. Please be sure to have your student complete these and return them on Monday for extra money.
