Hello Room 3 families and welcome to week 10 of distance learning!  As many of you know, this is the last full week of instruction for the 2019/2020 school year!


This week we are focusing in on the amazing spider.  We share this world with so many other forms of life.  The spider is one that can be found almost everywhere on our planet.  It is also symbolic of creepy, scary, shadowy things!  I hope to shed some light on the beauty and power of the amazing spider.


Wednesday:  We are encouraging students to present their projects, story writing, or other activities that they are really proud of during our Wednesday sharing time.  This is a great opportunity to work on presentation skills, reading, and public speaking.  Yay!

This Wednesday will be: wear a rainbow of colors day.  See you there!


Thursday:  This Thursday we will have three very special guests in our classroom zoom meeting.  Meridy, Adam, and Jasper will be joining us to field questions from our 3rd grade students about their classrooms, curriculum, and class culture.  This is an important meeting for all students to attend, especially if they are a 3rd grader.  At the end of this meeting we will reveal the next year class placements.  Afterwards, students can join us for our lunch zoom to talk to their friends if they would like.


Learning about class placement is an emotional time for 3rd graders.  Ridgeline considers many factors when making decisions on placement.  We believe that your student will do well in their new classroom.  Let’s welcome them!  Monday, June 8th,  is move-up day.  Students will spend time with their new teachers in a meaningful way and get to know all of their peers moving up with them.  Watch for communication from Upper Elementary teachers at the end of the week for details.


Video Project:  Jacob is busy this week putting together our end-of-year video.  A big thank you to Jacob for taking on this project!  If you have not yet submitted a video, please do so through the Seesaw activity.  If you are a 3rd grader, please make sure that you submit a goodbye video or a photo for us to use as well.  Pictures of cards made for the classroom are also welcome and greatly appreciated!
