This week the majority of kids in 3rd grade will take the much anticipated Nebraska State Assessment for English Language Arts (NeSA-ELA). Those exams will take place on Wednesday and Thursday, from 10:00 to 12:00. Your kids will have enough to worry about this week, so we are not having spelling or reading homework. I think they deserve a break, considering the magnitude of those tests! Please help your child get a good night of rest, a healthy breakfast and encourage him/her to simply do the best that he/she can!!!
Report cards will be coming home on Thursday. As always, sit down with your child and have a chat regarding their grades. I tell them all the time that EFFORT is EVERYTHING! I hope their work equates to 3s and 4s, but 1s and 2s are simply reminders of what we need to keep practicing. Life and school are a process, and we’ll keep working hard in 4th quarter to master all the skills of third grade!
Thanks for reading and have a great week!
