Hello wonderful 3rd grade families!

What an unprecedented last few weeks we’ve had. We certainly have missed our 3rd graders, and are looking forward to reconnecting with you through Remote Learning! Be on the lookout for an invitation to 3rd Grade Remote Learning Google Classroom. You can also add yourself to the classroom by going to the (+) at the top right corner to join a class. 

Use classroom code amixwnr 

We will have office hours where we are available to answer questions via email or call if necessary. Office hours will be Tuesday, 10:00 - 10:30 a.m. & 5:00 - 5:30 p.m.​ Additionally, if you have any questions feel free to email anytime, and we will get back to you as soon as possible. Our goal is to connect with every student, give families an opportunity to get comfortable using the Google Classroom platform, and have a chance to ask questions. This can be done from a computer, phone, tablet, and even game consoles. We are trying to get an idea of how many families we can reach in this way so we can make adjustments if needed.  If you know technology access will be an issue, reach out to me so I can document that issue and we can work to find a solution. Please fill out the form below:

We look forward to our upcoming remote learning adventure! In the google classroom, there is a welcome back assignment to check in, and you will see activities broken down by week starting with Week 1 - 3/23 - 3/27. Activities will be available this evening. 

We miss our students and hope you are all well and safe!
Ms. Rodriguez & Mrs. Selman
