Weekly Update, January 13, 2020

Hi Parents,

Our class website (https://thirdgradeb.stmarym.org/) is newly updated to show our list of my spelling words with two groups in our class. We pretest on Monday, and then based on how they do, they are have list 1 (cream sheet) or list 2 (gold sheet) to study. This week we plan to do test 16 on Thursday.

Students will be taking multiplication timed tests starting this week. They will be tested on 0, 1, and 2 multiplied through 12 on Thursday. Based on how they do they will be moved to the next tests or retest. We will continue testing for a couple months and celebrate with a Multiplication Sundae Party! Thank you for supporting them while they memorize their multiplication facts. Flash cards are quick, but they most likely be more motivated to use a computer, like xtramath.org, where they already have an account.

Let me know if you have any questions. God Bless!

Mrs. Jennifer Stemerick

My name is Melissa Morrier-Turk, I am a graduate of SMM (class of 1986) and have been a member of the parish community much of my life. I have a B.S. in Business with an emphasis in Human Resources from Central Washington University and have spent my 23 years working in this field, traveling all over the USA and Canada as an HR Director, as well as a corporate trainer. My husband Mike and I have two kids, our son will be a Junior at Archbishop Murphy High School and our daughter will be a 7th grader here at SMM. As a parent, I have been an active member of the SMM community, most recently wrapping up my role as the Parent Club President this year and V.P. last year. I have also been an active member of the auction for the past 8 years, along with numerous opportunities to volunteer in my children’s classrooms and through club activities. In my off time I enjoy running, cycling, hiking, anything outdoorsy really. I have absolutely loved working with and getting to know so many of the families here at SMM as a parent and am looking forward to getting to know you all better as part of your school community!
