Tomball Scavenger Hunt

Parents, 

 

I wanted to send out a reminder about the Tomball Scavenger Hunt. I hope you and your child are having fun "hunting" for the different items. I can't wait to see what they bring in. Since Monday, October 9th is a holiday all items will be due Tuesday, October 10th.

The Assignment:  Community Scavenger Hunt

Each student is to collect 12 or more of the 14 items on the scavenger hunt list.  The student must present the items in the exact way as noted.  For example, the crayon rubbing of a building cannot be a picture or a drawing of the building. Students may use devices to take pictures.

**Please label all items and put them in a bag to send with your child.**

  1. A map of your community (ex: A city map of Tomball, TX).
  2. One leaf from TWO different types of trees in your community.
  3. Crayon rubbing from TWO different buildings.  Include the name of the building.
  4. Something that shows you tasted a wonderful sweet treat from a local bakery (receipt, picture).
  1. Sign or flyer advertising a community event.
  2. List four different animals you’ve seen in your community.  
  1. Something that shows you ate at a restaurant in your community (receipt, menu, etc.)
  2. Name of the local park or playground in your community.
  3. A written description of the best thing about your community and the worst thing.
  4. One item that shows you visited a historical place in your community (historical maker, local museum).
  1. Something from a place where you go to have fun.
  2. List of all the schools in your community.
  3. An interview with another person who lives in the community?  Include the person’s name, age and how long they have lived there.  What do they like and/or dislike?
  4. One item from your community library.  

Energy Bus - Rule #1: Create a Positive Vision

Parents,

As most of you know our theme this year is Energy Bus. There are 5 rules to Energy Bus and we just completed Rule #1: Create a Positive Vision. Each student was given two paper clouds and paper sunglasses. The first cloud was to write a personal positive vision for themselves. For example, be the best big sister I can be to my baby brother. The second cloud was to write an academic positive vision for themselves. For example, make A/B honor roll, make all A’s, get 250 points on Class DoJo. The sunglasses were to draw a picture to match their positive visions. The kids really enjoyed this activity and I’m sure are excited to share them with you. When your student gets home today make sure to ask them what their positive visions are. :)

Field Trip Reminder

Dear Parents, 

 

Just a reminder that we're going on our field trip tomorrow to Mercer Arboretum. Here are some reminders of things to do/bring: 

  • Wear your Fun Run shirt
  • Wear good closed-toe walking shoes
  • Apply bug spray and sunscreen at home (optional)
  • Bring a water bottle (labeled with name on it)
  • Pack your child's lunch in a GALLON ZIPLOCK BAG WITH THEIR NAME ON IT (lunches will be kept in a cooler of ice)

This is an all day field trip, so please plan accordingly. We look forward to having a great time with the students. :)

WOW!

Our 3rd graders did such a great job with the STAAR test this week that we would like to reward them with some fun on Friday.  Students may bring in a game on Friday to play with their friends.  Board games only.  No electronics please.  :)

STAAR Test

Parents,

As you know we are taking the Math and Reading STAAR tests next Monday, May 8th (Math) and Tuesday, May 9th (Reading). We have been preparing the students as best we can for the test and know that they will do their best! Just a few reminders of ways to help your child to prepare:

- Make sure that they get a good night's sleep

- Eat a good breakfast

- Keep your routines normal

- Arrive to school on time

Keep ALL electronics at home: watches, phones, etc. will be taken up by the teacher each morning and stored away during the test if they are brought to school

Encourage them to play outside and release extra energy throughout the weekend and on Monday/Tuesday afternoons

We are so thankful for your support of us this year, and know that we will finish out the year in a great way!
