Meet 3rd Grade Olympic Coach!
My name is Cara Clausing, your third grade teacher.  I am delighted to be your teacher and am looking forward to a wonderful school year.  This is my 8th year in teaching and my fifth year here at Trinity Lutheran school.  I have three children, Rachel, Joanna, and Noah and a wonderful husband, Chris.  I received my B.S. degree in Elementary Education from Valparaiso University and a M.S. Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Emporia State University.  I love reading and look forward to reading wonderful novels this year with you!  Here is a list of my favorite things:  my favorite book from my elementary years is Superfudge by Judy Blume, ice cream with caramel and chocolate, hiking through the mountains, walking along the shore at the Atlantic ocean, working with children, watching and participating in live theater productions, reading a good book, spending time with God, and spending time with my family!  May God bless and guide you this year in 3rd grade at Trinity Lutheran School!

Olympic Themed Classroom

This year we will have an olympic theme for our classroom.  This theme will help us as a class in understanding how we work together as a team, how we set class goals and individual goals, and how we work hard to reach those goals.  We will have an awards ceremony at the end of the year where everyone will earn their Gold medals for their hard work.  

Please talk with your parents/child about their goals and help them think of goals that are appropriate for them.  They may be goals for improving upon concepts/abilities or they may be areas of joy that you want to learn more about.  

This year we will work hard together as a team to reach our goals.  We will be writing our rules as a class as we talk about how to work together as a team.  These rules will also support our virtues/character trait curriculum.
