Morning Inferencing Detectives

Lead Detectives Bussey, Williams, and Vineyard had to call in detectives from all over to crack 10 important cases!  These are the morning detectives that met in the library and began to use inferencing skills to crack the cases.  They read the passages and looked for clues to determine who did it and how did you know.

Fun times in third grade!  Be on the lookout for the afternoon group of detectives…


A special thanks to Mrs. Elder for graciously allowing us to use the library!  Mrs. Elder is a friend to third grade and is always willing to let us use her “command post.”

Week of Sept. 24-28

Spelling Tests begin this week!  Students have words in their planners as well as on a worksheet.  Spelling test will be on Friday.

We encourage students to read 20 minutes nightly.  We do not have a reading log but highly encourage reading practice to promote fluency and foster a love for reading.

Also, Early Release is this Wednesday at 12:00.  There will be no Boys & Girls Club.  If you will need bus transportation and that is not your ordinary way home, please contact Scott Stagner.

Have a great week!



First Day Success!

We did it!  We survived the first day!  Actually, we not only survived our first day but it was a great success!!!  I am looking forward to this school year!  The first two days are basically getting organized and acclimated.  Then, we have the weekend to rest up from the hard work of getting back into a routine!  I am so impressed with my sweet class!  My hope and prayer is that your child wants to come to school and comes home excited and feeling like a “happy camper” every day.

Next week we will:

Language Arts-

*Continue a writing activity with a school bus your child drew.  (They are adorable)!

*Work on sentence writing.

*Grammar review


*Practice summarizing skills

*Review character, setting, plot using a story map

Social Studies-

*Where in the World am I? (Learning about our community)


Have a great, restful weekend!






Intermediate Drop-off Procedures

Intermediate Student Drop-Off Procedures

FIRST POINT: EXPECT VERY LONG LINES AND DELAYS when dropping off and picking up your child.

SECOND POINT: EXPECT LIMITED PARKING SPACES due to construction and improvements being made to our school. This has shifted the parking areas for other campuses to our area.

THIRD POINT: NO parents are allowed upstairs on the intermediate campus. Meet the Teacher will be on August 14th from 4:30-5:30.  If you cannot attend due to your work, a Parent Orientation night will be scheduled soon. School Supplies will be taken in the gym and placed on a cart to be delivered to your child’s classroom once students have been released to go upstairs.

FOURTH POINT: If you have not yet registered your child, there will be no class assignment made until BOTH Online and In-Person documents are completed. Parents will have to wait until teachers and classes have been dismissed from the gym to their classrooms before there will be staff members available to proceed with late registration. PLEASE KNOW: This may not take place until around 8:10 a.m.

Here are the student drop-off procedures that parents will need to review and know before the first day of school on Thursday morning, August 16th. There are lanes that specify BUSES ONLY, and there are lanes designated for CARS. Please watch the video below for how to use these.  Parents with Primary students ONLY will need to drop 0ff primary students on the Lower Level of the building which is the Primary Campus. Parents may not drop off students and allow them to walk across Roughneck Drive due to safety issues and construction congestion. Students may not be dropped off in the Intermediate School parking lot and allowed to walk across the parking lot to the sidewalk. This is very dangerous for your child. Students should never be dropped off earlier than 7:15. There is no school personnel available to supervise students at that time, and they will be completely unattended. Doors to the building open at 7:30.
