Dear Parent(s),

     
             What some crazy weather we have had! I hope everyone is staying warm and all the ice has melted away. 2nd 9 Weeks Awards will be rescheduled and I will let you know the date for that as soon as I can. Also if you haven't already, PLEASE locate my and Mrs. Stephens's private Facebook group so you can get a glimpse of your kiddos working hard! We also upload our anchor charts (notes that we take in class.) We like to update with school information there too. Just another way to help us stay connected! :) Search Mrs. Gilbreath and Mrs. Stephens's 3rd Grade Class and click join. We hope to see you there! Thank you to everyone who has already joined! I hope you are liking it!

            Our school has purchased Moby Max which is GREAT program to practice math. Each child has taken a placement test so the program knows where your child needs to begin and on what level. The website is www.mobymax.com. Your child's username is the number they use to take an AR test in reading and their password is their first and last initial. PLEASE allow them to practice. :)

There are a few things I'd like to make you aware of that are EXTREMELY IMPORTANT:

  • Please sign up to get reminders from me via text message through Remind.com! Text @gilbreathm to 81010. If that gives you trouble, try texting @gilbreathm to 662-729-4738. I will send important dates and information this way.
  • Please be sure to check our newsletter and/or websites for homework.
  • A folder will come home every Tuesday that will contain graded papers as well as important information for you. Please be sure to sign the papers and send them back.
  • The state of MS passed a literacy law that now requires every student in third grade to pass a literacy exam. They will take the test in April and in May. If they still don't pass the exam, they will have an opportunity to take the final assessment in June. If they fail the exam, they will have to repeat third grade regardless of report card grades.

Thank you for all you do for your child! We make a GREAT team! :)                                                                         

                                                        -Mrs. Gilbreath
