Mrs. Debbie Steigerwald

   Welcome to Mrs. Steigerwald's 

3rd/4th Grade TAG classroom site!


The 3rd Quarter ended on March 13. Students have the opportunity to improve their grade, if they wish, by following the instructions provided and reading the email I sent to parents on March 30. If you are happy with your 3rd Quarter grade, then no further action is required at this time. Information about 4th Quarter assignments will be coming to you soon.

Each student was provided a math and reading/writing packet on Friday, March 13. If your child wishes to improve his/her reading, writing, or math grade, the following assignments must be submitted by Wednesday, April 8, 2020.  I understand that some students may have been given a homeroom packet in addition to the TAG packet that was assembled. Please submit the TAG items listed below IF YOU WISH to help improve your grade.  Again, if you are happy with your existing grade, NO Further action is required.
