Parent Night PowerPoint

Hello everyone!

I wanted to post this PowerPoint slide show to our blog.  This is the slide show that was used during our Parent Night on August 28th.  I know this is a really busy time of year, so if you were unable to attend, or would like to go back and review some of the points mentioned that night, you will always be able to find it in this post!  Have a wonderful LONG weekend!!  :)

Why don't spiders stick to their webs?? That was the question of the day during Science class. We are working on learning how the Scientific method works. This little experiment was the perfect way to test out the steps of the Scientific method.:)

Welcome to 3rd grade!

Dear Third Grader,

My name is Mrs. Patton, and I am very excited to be your teacher! This year, we will be having lots of fun together. Below are a few pictures of me and my family, and a sneak peek at some of our adventures this summer.

We traveled to Michigan this summer for a family vacation, and to watch Kennedy and Kaylee play basketball! 
This is a picture of my family.  My husband's name is Joe, and I have two wonderful stepdaughters, Kennedy and Kaylee! 
In my free time, I like to play tennis, read, walk my dog, George, and spend time with my family!


George is a five year old goldendoodle. Above, is a picture of George!! He weighs 60 pounds, but he still thinks he should be able to sit on my lap!! Haha!! I am looking forward to a great year!! :)
