What a Success! Now it's back to work :)

Wow! What a tremendous success last Monday was in F3! With the help of volunteers, students in F3 were able to pack up 175 care packages. Karen Craddick took all these packages to the Georgetown Post Office, and all of the packages are now off to Ramadi. Good job F3! Read our latest letter from Paul! He's getting excited for all those care packages and asked us to write back with some specific information-- we'll have to work on that this week :)

Right now I'm in Boston again visiting my grandmother and Aunt Lorraine. My parents came up from Maryland too, so I've gotten to have a great time for Thanksgiving. I hope that all F3 families also had a great Thanksgiving.

Coming up this week, we're going to be working hard in math in anticipation of the end of the trimester which is this coming Friday. We will be completing our unit on division. Please make sure that your child is doing his or her math homework and checking over the work every night. A unit four math test on division will be on Friday.

We'll also be finishing up a major project: our camp brochures. Students will be bringing home a brochure they have been working on about their experience at Camp Seymour. Students will need to design the cover of their brochure at home. This will be due on Wednesday.

  1. Hello F3,

    Thank you for the AMAZING job you did gathering items to send to Paul's unit, the thoughtful letters your wrote to the Marines and the efficient packing you did last Monday. You have been quite the busy class!

    Each one of you are making a difference in the lives of the Marines. Paul's unit sure is lucky to be adopted by Maple Elementary.

    Your generosity, caring spirit and support of the troops is very encouraging and gives me hope for the future.

    Thank you to each and every one of you,
