As the days are getting shorter and the weather is turning cooler, learning is continuing to go on at South Hill Elementary. My name is Ann Owen and I am the Third Grade Title One Teacher.  I work closely with the third grade teachers to make sure our students are gaining the knowledge and skills that are necessary to be successful. There is so much that our third-graders need to learn this year and you, the parents, are such an important part in helping them become successful. Please ask them what they did in school each day. Give them the opportunity to share all of the amazing things they are learning in their subjects. Let them read to you each and every night. Review their notes and check their homework. With all of us working together, we can help our students become responsible and independent learners. That is one of the greatest gifts we can hope to attain for all of our children. Let's work together to make it a reality! 
  Please feel free to contact me at 434-447-8134 or you can email me at aowen@mcpsweb.org  if you have any questions or concerns about your child.
