Ms. Tracy Mitchell
I am originally from Pennsylvania. There I earned my undergraduate degree in Elementary and Special Education from Slippery Rock University. I began my teaching career in Richmond, Indiana in a specialized program educating students with emotional and behavioral disabilities. While there I earned my Masters in Special Education from Ball State University. After 8 years, I decided to move south. I came to East Clayton in 2005. I taught 3rd grade for 9 years and 4th grade for 4 years.

History Extravaganza Project
Students have been busy researching and writing about their self-selected US History topic. Next, they will begin working on their physical presentations. This may be a diorama, story board or other idea your student has developed in order to share there answer to the question "How has your event changed or made our country? Students will be displaying these physical representations of their research & quest for this answer during our History Extravaganza. With that being said, your student may be requesting materials for his/her project.
Students have been working on learning about U.S.. historical events and understanding how they have impacted our nation today. Third grade will be hosting a History Extravaganza on Friday, March 22, 2019 at 1:30. Families are invited and encouraged to attend. During the Extravaganza, students will present their projects on their chosen historical event.
Smith's Nursery Field Trip
Students brought home about our second field trip in their Friday folders. This trip will occur on Friday, April 12th. We are going to Smith's Nursery in Benson, NC. The cost for the field trip is $13. We do need the permission slip and fees by March 27th. Please let me know if you are planning to attend with your student. (Let me know by April 4th.) There is no limit to the number of chaperones, so all parents may attend. Parents only pay if they plan to pick strawberries. Parents can do that when they arrive at the nursery.
This is one of my favorite field trips. it fits nicely with our science curriculum & plant unit. The children will learn about bee pollination, they will tour a working nursery-seeing chickens, goats & mule, and they will be able to pick strawberries to bring home. we will have a picnic lunch with the weather permitting.
Children will need to dress for the weather and wear walking shoes.
