Friday News - March 23

HAPPY FRIDAY!

Wow! What a busy and long week we had! It was such a joy and a blessing to see you on Wednesday. Our students did such a great job showing and celebrating all their work they've been doing in 3rd grade! Keep encouraging them and working with them at home!

This week....
  • March in the United States means the time for college basketball! There is something called March Madness, where college basketball teams from all over the US compete in a tournament. Many people make their predictions of which teams will win by making brackets. We are doing our own March BOOK Madness in 3.1. We started with 16 books (the theme is animals) and we are going to vote until we have only ONE winning book remaining! Here is a look at our March Book Madness tournament bracket so far:
