Class Information

Take Home Folders: Please check your student's folder every night. These folders will have important information for parents or guardians.  Study guides for students will also be in the folder.
Snack: Everyday, we will have snack time around 9:15-9:30. Please make sure to provide a snack for your child.  
Homework:Third graders are expected to read 20 minutes each night in a book of their choosing. Research has shown daily independent reading to be one of the most important factors in predicting student success in school. Please encourage your child to read daily,

and ask questions about what he/she is reading!


Students are also expected to practice math facts for 10 minutes each day. A variety of fun ideas for practicing math facts will be sent home for your student to choose from. Some days, I may assign additional practice on a math skill we learned in class.


Check your child's agenda for homework. Important information and papers will be sent home in their take home folders. Please check your child's agenda and folder daily.

Teacher-Parent Communication: This year we will use Class Dojo to track student behavior. Each day, your child has the opportunity to earn positive & negative points based on his/her behavior. Class Dojo allows me to send quick messages straight to your cell phone. I will use this to post class reminders, updates, and pictures. You do not need a smart phone to receive messages. Class Dojo can also be used on a computer. The Class Dojo app (free for iPhone & Android) also allows you to send messages to me. This is by far the best way to contact me, as I frequently see these messages before emails!
Classwork Folders: These folders go home every Friday. Please take out your child's work and go over it with them. 
Enrichment: We have our Enrichment on Thursdays from 8:10 to 11:05. Please make sure students are returning their library books and wearing shoes on Thursdays.
