Welcome to 3rd Grade!

The University of North Carolina Tarheels
Class of 2031

Our Class Mission Statement

We will be nice and respectful to everyone so we can be good examples for others and make new friends. We will listen to our teachers, study, and follow the rules so we can learn all of our subjects. We will learn as much as we can so we can be ready for 4th grade and even college. We will have fun while we learn and always try our best.

College Bound at MES!

At Metropolis Elementary, we are encouraging our students to think about the question "Where will I go to college?" instead of "Will I go to college?" Each classroom has a university flag and pennant outside of the room that represents a college. We are the University of North Carolina Tarheels. By implementing this program, we are able to stress the importance of education to our students and have thought provoking conversations about it starting at a young age.


Welcome to 3rd Grade!
Third grade is a wonderful year that is full of learning and excitement. If you have any questions, feel free to call me at 524-4821 or email me at kdouglas@massac.org.
