The DES 3rd grade has been reading “A Pen Pal for Max.” The class has discussed friendly letters and postcards. On Friday, the class will write post cards to some special friends of our class who mailed postcards to us.

The Lesson 12 test will be on Monday. We will complete a study guide that the students will bring home to help them prepare. Students also need to study their spelling and vocabulary words.

Friday, December 9th will be my last day as an intern in the 3rd grade at DES. It is harder to say “goodbye” than I ever imagined. I will update my blog over the weekend and let you know how my last day went.

I do want to go ahead and thank you for allowing me to be a part of your child’s life and his/her educational journey. I extend my sincere gratitude to Mrs. Betsy Murray who welcomed me into her classroom and entrusted me to meet the learning needs of her students. I also wish to thank Mrs. Betty Gardner, Mrs. Kayla Claybrook, and Mrs. Jennifer Claybrook for their friendship and encouragement. My internship has been more than I ever imagined. DES will always hold a special place in my heart. Thank you!
