Welcome to the Commodore Perry's Third Grade Website!
We are excited to begin a new school year.
Dear 3rd Grade Families,
Welcome to a new school year! This will not be a lengthy letter, as I understand the first week of school is full of required paperwork from the district. My name is Mrs. Cianci, and I will be your child’s 3rd grade teacher. I am so excited for my fifth year in 3rd grade. As a class, we have already spent time getting to know each other.
Please allow me to tell you a little about myself. I graduated from Thiel College in 2005 with a degree in Elementary Education, and I have a certification in Middle School Mathematics. I recently completed my Masters Degree in Integrating Technology in the Classroom which I am excited to incorporate what I have learned with your child and help improve their learning experience. 3rd grade has created a classroom website which will provide a place to refer to for homework assignments, photos of what is occurring in the classroom, and resources that you can use at home. I also have a 14 year old daughter, Madison, who keeps me extremely busy and a golden retriever named Chasta.
Please be aware that the first week of school is full of testing, “All About Me” activities, and establishing classroom rules and routines. We will have our first Spelling Test on Friday, September 9th. Beginning next week, I will be sending home a “SIGN AND RETURN” folder. This will include all the graded or checked work that we have done in class or for homework. Please review the packet of papers with your child. Also, your child may bring in a “healthy” snack to be eaten in the morning along with a water bottle. Please mark your calendars; Open House is on Wednesday, September 22st from 6:30-8:00.
Finally, I am a teacher who feels very strongly about open parent/ teacher communication. Please feel free to call, e-mail, or schedule an appointment about any questions or concerns.
I look forward to a FANTASTIC school year!

Dear 3rd Grade Families,
Welcome to a new school year! I’m Mr. Straub, and I will be your child’s 3rd grade teacher. For those of you I don’t know, I graduated from CP and went on to Grove City College to earn my teaching degree. Later, I completed my Master’s Degree and earned my principal certification at Duquesne University. My wife Meg, our 3 children, and I reside in the district. Our daughter Callie is in Mrs. Sullivan’s 1st grade class and our son Tucker is in kindergarten with Mrs. Green. Liza is 2 and stays at home with my wife.
3rd grade has created a classroom website (which can be accessed through the school site) that will provide a place to refer to for homework assignments, photos of what is occurring in the classroom, and resources that you can use at home. I would highly recommend that you refer to our site for resources and information regarding projects and assignments. We try to keep it updated, but please be patient as it is always a work in progress.
Please be aware that the first week or so of school is full of testing, “All About Me” activities, and establishing classroom rules and routines. We will have our first Spelling and Reading Tests on Friday, September 9th and completed work will be starting to come home in the next couple weeks. To keep things organized, I will be sending home a “SIGN AND RETURN” folder. This will include graded and/or checked work that we have done in class or for homework. Please review the packet of papers with your child.
This year we are going to try something new. Many times students say that they are hungry and can’t wait until lunch. As a result, your child may bring in a healthy snack to be eaten in the morning. Also, since it tends to get warm upstairs, feel free to send a water bottle in with your child. Please make sure that it has your child’s name on it and some type of a lid that can be closed tightly to prevent spills. They should be coming home daily to be washed/cleaned out.
Lastly, school/home communication is extremely important. Please feel free to call, e-mail, or schedule an appointment about any questions or concerns. The quickest and easiest way to reach me is through e-mail.
I’m looking forward to a wonderful year. I hope to see you all at Open House, which is on Wednesday, September 21st from 6:30-8:00.
