Hello, Grade 3 Families,

We have made it to the last week before March Break! I think it is fair to say that we are all ready for a little rest…but not until this week is done! Please take note of the following announcements as we prepare for this busy week.

Operation Pollination

Our class is collecting empty bottles, cans, and juice boxes in order to raise some funds to purchase seeds and planting necessities. We hope to begin planting shortly after we return from March Break. If you have “empties” at home that you could send in, that would be greatly appreciated!

Mathletics Competition

Get your math brains on, students! The elementary classes have entered a national competition through Mathletics, an award winning interactive site that aims to improve math skills through fun activities linked to the Canadian curriculum. Students earn points by completing activities and answering questions in Live Mathletics competitions. We are hoping the enthusiasm surrounding this competition grows and will help to increase our students’ math skills. And, who knows? We may even win a prize. 🙂  The contest runs from March 7th to March 24th.
