Welcome to 3rd grade!  There will be one 3rd grade class during the 2011-2012 school year.  I will be teaching all subjects, except specials classes and religion.  Mrs. Payne will be teaching our religion class.  I write weekly newsletters that tell you about upcoming events, topics we are working on, homework assignments, and spelling words.  The spelling words are also posted on the website.  I look forward to visiting with you all at our fall Open House.    A parent meeting will be scheduled early in the year to inform you of 3rd grade expectations and procedures.
    Please feel free to e-mail me with any information you would like to share, or questions you may have. I will check e-mail over the summer, so you are welcome to write me before the year begins. The path to success is through cooperation and communication!  My school e-mail address is tvalentour@villateresaschool.com .
