Welcome to Ms. Andress' Class!

Happy 2021-2022 school year! I look forward to helping your child grow as a learner this year. 


Weekly Smore Link and Holiday Party Info

Here is the link to our Smore page for this week: https://www.smore.com/vr6g7


We know that many parents enjoy attending and/or volunteering during their child’s Holiday Winter Parties. Our room parents have already met and are busy planning for this year. This year all TISD holiday parties will be on a staggered schedule and take place Friday, Dec. 17th. Our 3rd grade party is scheduled for the following time:

  • 9:15-10:00 K,3

To avoid extremely long lines when arriving, parents planning to attend a party are required to pre-register no later than Dec. 9th using this form Holiday Party Pre-Registration. If you have previously visited CFES this school year and had your US driver's license scanned into the system we will be able to complete your registration prior to arrival allowing you to avoid the lines. Parents who have more than one child and plan to attend multiple parties only need to submit the registration form one time.

TISD requires all adults who help in classrooms to complete the TISD Volunteer Form at least one week prior to attending a campus event for the first time each year; therefore, if you have not already completed this form this year it is important to do it at this time.

We can't wait to celebrate the upcoming holidays with our students!


Have a wonderful day! :)

Angel Tree Items Due

Good morning,
If you haven't had a chance to send Angel Tree items to the school yet, please do so tomorrow. The items will be collected from our campus on Wednesday. If for some reason your child is absent, you can drop the items off at the front office.
Thank you! :)

Vocabulary page 1
Here are the vocabulary words, pictures, and definitions for tomorrow's quiz. Students have also been practicing definitions and movements for each word in class for the past few weeks, so if you call out a word, they should be able to tell you the meaning. :) I will post a picture of the other vocabulary page in a follow up post.
