Welcome to Third Grade



It is always an exciting time when we prepare to begin a new school year.  In order to make the beginning of our year successful, I have included some information below to help you.  Most of our first few weeks together will involve learning new classroom routines and expectations, building our classroom community, and reviewing skills from last year.  Please feel free to email me with any questions and concerns.

Our class will be having Library/ Technology and Physical Education during the first trimester.  Since we are on a 6 day rotation for our humanities classes, please have to your child wear sneakers to school every day so that they are prepared for PE.




Student Folders:

Students will bring home a homework folder each night and will need to return it the next day with completed work.  Please make sure to check your child’s folder daily and remove papers that are to be kept at home. 


Homework will be assigned Monday through Thursday.  Each student will receive a planner that will have the daily homework, tests/quizzes to study for, and any other reminders.  There will be time for your child to copy all homework from the board. Please set up a quiet place in your home for your child to work on his/her homework.  If a student is absent, they will be responsible for getting the missed work upon return to school and completing it in a timely fashion.  All missing or incomplete homework will be completed during recess or at home and returned the following day.  Check the planner each night!  If your child is having trouble completing any assignment, please contact me by note or email. 

Students will be expected to read for at least 20 minutes each night.  They will record their reading on their 'Reading Log'.  This will be kept in their folder at all times.  Math Home Links will be given every night, as well as a Word Study assignment.
