Extra Help

 Extra Help will be every Tuesday from 7:30 to 8:00. This week will be math again since we have a math test this week.

Our field trip to the Long Island Aquarium that was scheduled for May 15, 2018 will be cancelled due to inclement weather. However,the trip will be rescheduled for May 31, 2018. The Long Island Aquarium has asked that we reschedule the trip since a big portion of the trip will be on the boat. They want to ensure the safety of all the children. The third grade will be going on a field trip to the Long Island Aquarium in Riverhead on Tuesday, May 31, 2018. We will be leaving school promptly at 8:30 a.m. and will return to school by 1:15 p.m. Students are to wear their gym uniform. They need to bring a small backpack and a bag lunch with them on the trip.
