Hop into Grade 3

Welcome to 3rd Grade!

I am very excited to have the privilege of teaching your child this year! We will have many opportunities for fun learning activities together during the day. But to reach your child's highest potential, he/she needs to become comfortable with the art of studying as part of the homework routine. Behavior is another huge influence on academic success. I will be working very hard to explain and model appropriate expected behavior. As an entire school, we are using the PBIS program (STAR BUCKS) to encourage and praise appropriate behavior. I will make the students aware of our school wide expectations and the reward system that accompanies this program. The most important part, however, is to have your support!! When students see that the teacher and his/her parents are working together as a team, appropriate behavior is easier to achieve and success in academics follows. If you ever have a question, concern, or even a suggestion, please feel free to contact me by email, note, or stopping in to talk after dismissal. Together, I am hoping to have a wonderful, successful year with you and your child!
