Rolling Hills "Take Home/Blue" folder and test folder:
Each student has received a Rolling Hills folder, which may be used for important papers and notes. Please remind your 3rd grader to check and empty this folder every night. You may also use the RH folder to send in notes about changes in dismissal, lunch money, and any other correspondence. The test folder will be sent home bi-weekly for your review and signature, please return all papers in the folder after reviewing them.
Please check and sign your 3rd grader's assignment book for daily communication on a nightly basis. Your child is required to record nightly homework and include other information about upcoming school news & events in his/her assignment book. You may also use this book to write a quick note to me, but please be sure your child addresses the note with me when he/she arrives at school.
List-serv & E-Friday Folder:
The List-serv and Rolling Hills E-Friday folder are both resources to provide news and upcoming events for families. Please take the time to join the list-serv for our Rolling Hills community to receive important information on a regular basis through one's email. It's a great way to stay informed with our school!

Our class looks forward to celebrating everyone's birthdays! If you'd like to bring in something for our class, non-edible treats are welcomed. Invitations may not be given out in school unless the whole class, all of the girls, or all of the boys are invited(thank you in advance for taking care of everyone's feelings).
Each week a new student will be chosen to be STAR of the week. A poster will be sent home with a star page and small stars to color. Your child can bring in a few items to share. Your child will be highlighted for the week during various activities
A typical Day
School begins at 9:10 each morning. If your child walks or is a car rider, please do not have him/her arrive before8:50 because there will be no supervision before that time. The morning is devoted to morning meeting and language arts. We also have math, social studies, and science. Dismissal is at 3:40. Dismissal is at 12:15 on Early Dismissal Days.
Conferences will be held in the fall along with a first quarter report card. A sign-up sheet for November conferences will be available on sign up genius in early September. The third grade report card contains a continuum of skills. It is a developmental reporting system that reflects the growth of your child as a learner. Report cards will be distributed at the end of the year only. You access all other report cards online.
