Welcome to 3A!      September 2017

Dear Parents:

Welcome to Grade 3! I am really looking forward to the upcoming year and the opportunity to work with your child.  For the first month of school, we are going to be spending a lot of time getting to know each other, the school environment and routines of grade three.  In order to have a successful year I have compiled some important information you will need to keep in mind throughout the year.

Health Alert and Apple School

Please be aware that SMP is a nut-safe and apple school following the Operating Policy and Procedure 138 set by our Fort McMurray Catholic School District. To promote healthy lifestyles we ask that you pack your child healthy snacks and lunches. 


Agendas are the primary method of communicating between home and school.  It is critical that the agenda be signed or initialed every night and returned to the school each day.  If you have any concerns or notes about your child feel free to write them in the agenda.  I will be checking them every morning.

Absences / late

If your child is sick, please call the office in the morning – 780-799-5720.  If your child is late they need to check in at the office and to pick up a late slip.  If you know of your child’s absence in advance, feel free to email me or send a note in your child’s agenda.

Important Dates 

December 22 – January 7 Christmas Break

February 24 -  March 4 Teachers Convention No school

March 30 – April  8 – Easter Break

June 28- Last Day before Summer Break


Reading for 15 minutes.  Please record the amount of time spent reading and the title in your child’s agenda.  We will be setting the students up with a Reading Eggs account later in the month and will inform you as soon as passwords are available. 

Keeping in touch

It is really important to me as a teacher to keep parents involved in their child’s school life. If you have any questions or would like to talk to me for any reason, please feel free to contact me at the school – 780-799-5720 or by email la1722@fmcsd.ab.ca.  I look forward to working with you and your child in the upcoming school year and I know that by working together, we will ensure your child’s success.

Please fill out the attached student information sheet that will be sent home on Tuesday, September 5th, and return at your earliest convenience.


Mrs. Lynn Alexander
