Welcome to third grade. It's an exciting year and a big step. We study and learn about lots of interesting things. Your child will probably have a little more homework. We'll cover and be tested on more subject areas. The children will also be changing personally and socially as they learn to deal with successes as well as frustrations. They will learn to be accepting of the personalities and behaviors of others as well as shape their own. They will be expected to strive to be good citizens. I will do my best to be an example and a guide at school. My goal is help them develop the love of learning and become life long learners as they question their world for more answers. Your child will grow in many ways. With your support we can help them reach success!
