Please find enclosed the ES swimming schedule for this trimester. Please read through the new swimming schedule, and check your child’s lesson day.
Please also ensure that your child brings their swimming clothes/equipment on their designated day. Students will receive 5 lessons of swimming, and as swimming is a mandatory part of our curriculum, we therefore ask that you help prepare your child with all the necessary items for each swimming lesson.
The swim lesson dates are as follows:
7, 14, 17, 24 ,29 October
We have tried our best to avoid the days when there is any trip scheduled. However if a class trip occurs on any of these dates then the swimming class might be rescheduled.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact the PE Department at school or via email.
This morning 3A students learned that one thing good readers do is talk about their books. Good readers learn form each other by sharing their ideas and their thinking, so third graders were challenged to turn and talk trying to respond to their partner’s ideas instead of just telling their own ideas.
Please take a look at the anchor chart below so you can practice at home with your child. Make sure you do it after he reads 15 or 20 minutes and thinks about what he would like to share with you.
As a part of our efforts to provide you with timely support when needed, we have attached a “Who to Call” chart. Our intent is to help you know who to contact for different questions about the school and put you in touch with the person most able to directly address your need. This document has a flow chart showing the chain of communication we use and a list of key staff, their duties, and their contact information. We hope this helps us serve you better.
During our first social studies unit, grade 3 students have been learning how to construct and use simple maps, recognize why people live where they live, and the differences between human, natural, and man-made resources.
They have been working on their summative assessment, a Home Country Poster, including some unique facts from their home country, a map, and different resources. Students learned how to take notes using different tools such as Encyclopedia Britannica.
I’m attaching the rubric so you know what will be expected.
