Welcome to Third Grade!!!

Dear Parents and Third Grade Students,

I want to welcome you to third grade at St. Elizabeth's. Our school community is committed to proved a caring and faith filled environment to enrich your child academically and spiritually. This school year there will be two third grade classes. I will be teaching Math, Science, Social Studies, Religion, and Guidance. Ms. Cardneaux will be teaching Reading, Writing, Spelling, English, and Hand Writing.

To make the transition into third grade easier, the following information will help to get your school year started:

  • 3. Absent - If your child is going to be absent, please email the teacher. A "Pink" sheet will be filled out, with the assignments for that day, and will be at the front office for you to pick up by the end of the school day.

CONDUCT

In my class room I use a conduct sheet per week. It will be in their RED take home folder and must be initialed daily by a parent. All students start each day at 100%. A check will be put in category then a percentage will be given daily. This will then be average for the week.

HOME WORK

Third graders will have home work Monday-Thursday. They will be responsible to write down home work daily in their Planners. I will check the first few weeks of school to make sure they are completing this task. When possible, home work assignments can be completed in the class room. On the day before a test, I will try not to give home work. Late home work = 5 points off per day the 1st and 2nd Quarters, 10 points per day the 3rd and 4th Quarters.

I hope to have a super school year!

The best way to contact me is through email. I will respond back within 24 hours.
