How’s the costume coming along?
All students need a costume at school on Monday, May 20th! The day will be filled with fun activities and the costume parade will be at 2:00. Please have your child let me know if any items are needed for this fun school-wide event!
Please remember, parents and younger siblings are invited to come to the parade. We will travel across the front of the building from the baseball field end to the playground end. We would love to see you there!
LeTort will be holding our Book Swap again this year. Get ready to clean off your book shelves and check under your bed to find those books that you’ve already read!
Your child may swap as many as 20 books. We welcome donations if you have more than 20 books. (We can especially use intermediate books.) We will make sure that they get in students’ hands. Please bring in books May 20 – 24. The swap will be held the following week.
Due to unforeseen circumstances, the all-school field trip scheduled for April 3, 2019 has been moved from The Ware Center in downtown Lancaster TO The Winter Center at Millersville University.
If you have returned a permission slip that does NOT permit your child to attend, I hope that you would reconsider your child’s participating in this opportunity. If another permission slip is needed, please contact the school office at 717-872-9530.
It will be Day A with Applied Engineering when we return! I am sorry for the confusion, Mrs. Wright
Staying safe and enjoying the snow are the plans for the day!
Do you remember the “Who Am I” poster project is due on Monday, Feb 25th?
Students need to finish the project steps to make the poster neat and complete and not be overwhelmed!
Please do not hesitate to let Mrs. Wright know if you have any questions or need any help!

I wanted to let you know that for the remainder of the year Third Grade will be incorporating reading fluency, decoding, and math practice into Enrichment and Intervention time. Academic Support staff will be supporting students to help them reach reading and math benchmarks. These groups will be flexible and may change throughout the remainder of year as students progress.
What happened in Mrs. Wright`s class during November? Read to find out!
by Mrs. Wright’s Class
Reading In November, reading swept us away to a magical, funny and cute story, none other than Wishtree. Reading also took us to a village where NO ONE would share. That was until 3 monks Hok, Lok, and Seiw, paid that little town a visit, and then, of course, everyone shared! By Natalie
THE MATH PROBLEMS
IN MATH WE DO A LOT OF WORD PROBLEMS AND WE ALSO DO A LOT OF MULTIPLICATION AND DIVISION.
In math we are learning multiplication and division with zeros, ones, twos, threes, fours, fives, sixes, and sevens! We learned the threes and fours song , the six and seven trick, and how to count by twos and fives. Have you ever done multiplication? Math is sure fun! By Daisy
Math and Social Studies
In math, we learned the 1s, 2s, 3s, 4s, 5s, 6s, 7s and 0s times tables. We even had a chapter test! In social studies, we learned about the history of Lancaster County. By Nataile
Winter snow already!
On Thursday, November the fifteenth, it SNOWED! We had lunch at 10:50 and an early dismissal at 12:15. Also, the following day, we had a two-hour delay! It was a crazy week, plus a ton of fun. By Daisy
Guess what!?! Before Thanksgiving, yes, before Thanksgiving, it SNOWED!!!!!!!!!! All of the after school people either were car riders, or bus riders. Walkers had a winter wonderland on one side, and on the other side, a blizzard!!! Meanwhile, some of the bus riders were an hour and a half late!!! Yes, transportation was rough!! But, not to worry!!! Everyone got home safely!!! (But the next day we had a 2-hour delay!) By Natalie
STONE SOUP … YUM!
Here is a picture of stone soup.
In class, we learned how to make stone soup and we ate it, too. If I had to write a comment, I would say it’s pretty good. Guess what, we even did a readers theater on Stone Soup. We also had a harvest party. We made turkey bowls and butter, and we watched Happy Thanksgiving, Charlie Brown. By Ellie
On November nineteenth, we made friendship mix with our kindergarten buddies. We helped our buddies count the ingredients with ten frames and put them in the bowl. It sure did taste good! We also did a play about the story, Stone Soup, for the kindergarteners. We had a fun time with Kindergarten.
Have you read stone soup? It’s about three men who make a soup out of stones. Nobody in the village likes the men, but slowly they all open up there hearts a little and give some food to put in the pot with three stones in it. The villagers never eat the stones in the end because everyone added a bit of good food to make the soup taste good, even if they were to take out the stones. We did a play of Stone Soup for the Kindergarteners. We also made stone soup in our classroom. It sure was good! We also made butter to put on crackers and a turkey bowl, and then we watched a Charlie Brown Thanksgiving. It was SO fun! By Daisy
Super Spelling and Wonderful Writing:
We do lots of super spelling and wonderful writing! We have a spelling test Friday and we do writing almost everyday! Our words can be tricky, but that’s what spelling words are for, so you can learn how to spell them! By Daisy
IN NOVEMBER WE WROTE OUR FIRST BIOGRAPHY, AND IT WAS FUN. BY: Wyatt
In support of the Warwick community who suffered a tragic loss on Friday and another this morning, we are encouraging all faculty, staff, and students to wear red on Monday.
Pumpkins on Monday
Please remember that we will be painting pumpkins on Tuesday with our Kindergarten buddies. Students are asked to bring their pumpkin to school Monday marked with their name on the bottom.
