              Cole Canyon’s third grade team would like to let you know that we miss you, and we hope that you are all doing well. Please know that we are diligently working to meet your child’s academic needs.  As you know, the district has taken some time to work on a plan for our Murrieta Valley Unified School District students. We are now entering Phase One of the plan.  They will be sending you a link that will provide optional, non-graded learning activities for students by grade level.  I will be emailing you daily to make sure that you are supported during this time of transition. I understand that these are unprecedented times, and I hope to make this transition as smooth as possible. I have set aside the following times for responding to emails:  10 AM – 2 PM. If you have any questions, feel free to send an email, and I will do my best to answer any questions that may arise. I would love to hear a quick message from your child on how he/she is doing. Thank you for your flexibility and cooperation, as we navigate through this new adventure of distance learning. In closing, remember to give yourselves time to enjoy one another and allow yourselves time to make memories.  Our families’ health and safety continue to be our utmost priority. 










         Twenty-two weeks ago, I changed the homework requirements for the children. Two nights a week, the children are to go onto Raz Kids for their reading homework. Your child must log into Raz Kids (from the Cole Canyon student links page) and go to our class by typing   ahess12  in the "teacher username box".  One book is selected to be listened to, read, and tested. The books may be read in any order on the page that opens up. All of the books must be completed before your child levels up to another reading level. This takes the place of the "read for 15 minutes and write 2 sentences" homework for that night. Your child will write "Raz Kids" on the paper where sentences would have been written. It doesn't matter which 2 days Raz Kids is completed as long as it is done twice each week. Thank you for your help in making sure this is completed at home twice a week.
         There is one item that your child will need to complete the nightly homework. It is a package of wide ruled notebook paper (loose leaf paper as I call it). You will keep this package at home. Every night, your child will be writing two sentences about what he/ she read, and they are to be written on the notebook paper. One sheet is used for a week of sentences.
         Murrieta Over Drive Digital Library is where students can check out books digitally for two weeks and read them on their devices. You can search for books by subject matter, collections, or level. To access this program, go to Cole Canyon's website and look under "student links" to find the icon titled Murrieta Valley Unified School District Digital Library. Your child can log in using his/her 9 digit number. The password is MvusdMMDD(4 digit birthdate--month and day)! A child that was born on August 25, 2009 would type:  Mvusd0825!
        You will want to visit my website each week to read the weekly announcements on this class page. Please open the "Class Files" link found on the left hand side of this page under my name. You will find a lot of useful and needed information there. I suggest that you check it a couple times a week for any updated information. Some of the documents you may just want to read, while others you may want to print out a copy to keep as a reference. The "Weekly Homework Assignment Sheet" and "Weekly Spelling Words" will be found in the "Class Files" section of my website. You don't have to print the assignment sheet. You can just open it and refer to it for what is assigned each day.
            WISH LIST: 
    Mondays are early release days. The children are dismissed at 1:50.
