Dear Third Grade Parents:

Creative Writing      

Thursday, 10/5/17 marks the beginning of our ten week creative writing course with Suzanne LaFleur. This program will be an enrichment-writing period in addition to our regular writing program.

At a young age, Suzanne LaFleur fell in love with stories and writes to help children do the same. Suzanne works with children in New York and Boston. We are really thrilled to have her work with our third graders!


We’d like the students to practice keyboarding twice a week for 15-20 minutes. Students should login with their Google account from school and complete the beginner, intermediate and advanced lessons by the end of the school year. They can take the 1 minute, 3 minute or 5 minute typing test. In addition, this will help the students when we are researching on the chromebooks in school. By 4th grade, students should be typing 40 words per minute. The link is

Our Best,

Leslie and Kevin
