• Welcome to Our 3rd Grade Class 

    Dear Students,

    Welcome to third grade. We hope you are enjoying summer vacation and have read some great books! We are very excited to have you in our class this year and are looking forward to meeting you Wednesday, September 5th in room 218.

    Plan on an awesome year because we will explore different country's landforms, government and cultures. We will learn more about our world by completing science units on buoyancy, rocks and minerals, and butterflies. The class will travel to different places and times as we read great books. You will also work hard and become a master mathematician.

    We’ve been gathering pictures to decorate our writer’s notebook. We think they will tell you all about us. You should start looking for photos and magazine pictures to personalize your notebook and create an exciting collage about yourself.

    This year our special class schedule looks like this:

    • Monday – Physical Education
    • Tuesday –Art
    • Wednesday – Physical Education and Music
    • Thursday – Art and Music
    • Friday – Library and Computer

    We have Phys. Ed. Class on the first day of school so be sure to wear your sneakers and play clothes for gym.

    Lunch is from 11:42 – 12:12, so be sure to eat a good breakfast. You should bring in a water bottle with plain water or bring an empty bottle to fill in the classroom. Make sure the top fits tightly so it doesn’t spill. (No flavored water or juice drinks please because spills attract ants.)

    Please bring in your supplies on the first day of school. I have enclosed a list with this letter that has 2 additional items listed. You will need 1 additional composition notebook and $4.50 to cover the cost of Scholastic News. The general supply list is on the school website and our list is on our class homepage. You may also find other interesting things on the class page so feel free to visit often.
