Hello Families and Friends, 

We have had a great first week of school!  Thank you for getting your children here and ready to learn each day.
Here are a few notes:
Please return any forms you have at home back to school.  They went home on Monday in a brown folder.  
We had a great week of community building in Room 205.  Next week on Tuesday we will be starting our regular curriculum including Science (Structures of Life kit), Reader's and Writer's workshops, and Math.  We will be clustering the students for math in flexible groups based on MAP scores from 2nd grade.  Your child may have a different teacher for math.  Our goal is to provide a good fit that challenges all of our students in math.  
Friday folders went home today.  Please have your child return their folder next week.
A note from Sidney (parent liaison):


The Marcy Pages student/family directory has gone completely online for the 2014/15 school year! To enter your family’s information and get the directory link, go to and follow the on-screen instructions. It’s quick and easy! If you have any problems or questions, please contact the Marcy Pages administrator, Lori Janies, at Thank you!



Again, thanks for a great week.  Please email or call with any questions.
