Good evening!! Below is a PPT fun drawing activity that your child can do at home for the last week of school. It is not mandatory and it does not need to be turned in. :) We also linked some multiplication math fact pages for those of you who want to practice over the summer. :)

Dear American Academy Parents,
We hope you are well and adjusting to this season of change. We MISS your kiddos already and are counting the days until we see their sweet smiling faces!
To help our students prior to next Monday we wanted to give you some information that will hopefully help you plan your remote learning schedules.
Please check the third-grade website https://www.aak8.org/apps/pages/aa-studentquicklinks for resources to support remote learning. Additionally, teachers will send out a daily email with instructions for lesson completion. If there are questions or concerns please contact your teachers via email.
We look forward to working with you as you support your precious kiddos via remote learning. We are available to assist and support you during regular school hours 7:30am – 3:30pm, please do not hesitate to contact us.

To help you navigate this season the following links might be helpful. As with anything your child views on the internet, please review prior to allowing your student to explore. At school we have restrictions put in place to ensure content is age appropriate.
DCSD Nutrition Lunches provided starting March 23rd FREE lunches:

Science
Science is all about observing, questioning, and wondering. Students are doing a fabulous job this year, writing their observations in their journals when they come to class. On Monday, I will post the three Science Journal entries students can write about what they observe. In class, we discuss how important it is for Scientists to be specific and share all they think or know. Please encourage your students to write in complete sentences and share all that they think and know.
