Hi Parents!
Field Trip 
We will leave school at 8:45am tomorrow for the Winningstad Theater in Portland. Chaperones are below. Chaperones, please arrive at 8:30am for your group assignments.  We will be back at school around noon and have lunch at school. Children should bring a snack to be eaten on the bus.  A note that there is “before the play”  homework that will need to be completed tonight if your child did not get to it yesterday.

Science
Last week’s lesson on  forces was about the force of magnetism. Your child got to spend time observing and discovering some of the basic properties of magnets!

One fun thing you can do together with your child is to explore this printable chart featuring wonderful household uses for magnets (see link below). This reinforces this week’s learning and also models how engineers or inventors think, something we’re doing more frequently in science class.

Weird and Wonderful Uses for Magnets

These next two weeks we will be learning about hunger and preparing for our school food drive (3rd grade is in charge.)
We’ll also be getting ready for conferences. (Please sign up if you have not already!)
Math Facts
Practice packets went home on Monday and we will have our test (2 minutes) on Friday as usual.
Have a great week!
