Third Grade

Welcome to the 2020-2021 School Year

We are anxiously planning for our upcoming school year. We want everyone to know how EXCITED we are to see your child. We missed our students and are looking forward to meeting our new classes. As everyone knows, the best laid plans change almost daily. We will be posting updates here .

Thank you for your patience and we look forward to seeing you during our orientation week of August 17th! (More details will be coming soon). The week of August 24th will be our first week of the hybrid schedule. As you know masks are required for all students. Please make sure you have several masks for your child, labeled with their names. Please see the bottom of this page for school supplies. We are also asking that students bring a towel to sit on when outside. We understand that certain items like hand sanitizer, wet ones, and clorox wipes are in high demand. When you can find these items just send them in even if it's later in the year.

Have a good rest of your summer!
Mrs. Dunham and Mrs. Sutula
