Welcome to 3rd Grade!
I am glad you are going to be in my class this year! There are some nice kids in our class and I know you will have a good year. I like to do a lot of arts and crafts projects mixed in with our class work. We work really hard, but we also have a lot of fun times too.
3rd Grade is a lot of fun! Your parents' PTA membership pays for our field trips and school activities, so please ask them to become PTA members! We like to win contests in our class, and PTA gives us great prizes and incentives! Keep your eyes open for these emails! I use SignUpGenius to ask for donations for our class, such as party supplies or craft donations for our holidays.
Each student gets their own laptop for learning and research in class. We provide inexpensive earbuds, but you may use your own ear buds or headphones from home. Most of the computers went through covid use at home, so students need a USB plug instead of a regular plug. You are responsible for your supplies, so please keep them safe, in a zip lock bag, in your desk or in your backpack with your name on them.
Teachers and parents will communicate between home and school through email: email@example.com. Students can email me on our class Canvas page, which is a secure communication tool for students. Our homework, assignments, classwork, art projects, awards, resources, and other information about our class is found on our Canvas page. Parents, please join our Canvas page as an Observer so you have access to materials, or if you need to reprint missing homework.
Students, I know you will try your hardest to always do a good job, and I will work just as hard to make sure you are ready for fourth grade and have fun learning!
