We are Leaders sailing to new horizons!


 Dear Families,

We will have a Math Test on Friday, May 12, 2017, covering Unit 7 (Fractions).  A test review will be given on Wednesday, discussed on Thursday, and collected on Friday.  Parents:  Please sign your child's test review and remind him or her to study.

Erving's Annual Walk-A-Thon will be held on Friday, May 12, 2017.  Students were given Pledge forms.  Any child who has $1.00 or more in pledges will be able to participate.  Walk-A-Thon pledge money is due by Wednesday, May 10th.  This is a fun event for the students and the proceeds support student activities such as assemblies, transportation for field trips, etc.  Parent volunteers are also needed.  In addition to enjoying the event, there are some really nice prizes for the highest pledge recipients, with the Grand Prize being a trip to Kalahari for a family of 4!

Upcoming Assessments:  We have several end of the year assessments that we are required to do for the Woodhaven Brownstown School District and/or State of Michigan this month.  Included are:  M-Step, DRA, STAR Reading, STAR Math, ELA Benchmark Test, plus our regular unit tests.  I will do my best to space them out, but some tests are pre-scheduled for us and I have to work around that.  

3rd Grade M-Step-My class has been scheduled to take the ELA Computer Adaptive Test on Thursday, May 18th.  The following week, my students are scheduled to take the Math Computer Adaptive Test on Monday, May 22nd and the Math Performance Task on Wednesday, May 24th.

DECA from the Woodhaven High School is hosting another clothing give away on May 12, 2017 from 2:30-6:00 PM and Saturday, May 13th from 9:00AM - 2:00 PM.  It will be held in the Woodhaven High School cafeteria.   The clothing is FREE to any students and families in the community.

Mark your calendars!  On Wednesday, May 24, 2017 from 6:00-8:00 PM, Erving will be hosting a free Family Fun Science Night.  We hope to see everyone there!

Thursday, June 1, 2017 will be our annual AR Ice Cream Social.  All third grade students who earn 30 or more AR points are invited to attend.  Also, each third grade participant is welcome to invite one adult (parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle, etc.) as their guest.  My goal is to have ALL my students participate and we are almost there!

Planning ahead...On Monday, June 12, 2017, all of Erving's third grade students will be going on a field trip to Greenfield Village.  Adult chaperones will be needed. (All chaperones must have an iChat form on file in the office.  If a form is needed, please stop by the office to pick one up.) . Detailed information was sent home on May 1, 2017, along with permission slips.
