Students, welcome to Third Grade! Parents, I'm looking forward to meeting you. Together we are going to have a fabulous 2016-2017 school year. I am so thrilled to be your teacher. We are going to learn and have fun doing it.
On Tuesday, August 2 we will have Orientation from 11-1 and 4-6. At that time, my students can find their desks, bring their supplies, buy an agenda, and get reoriented to the school building. The first day of school is Thursday, August 4.
Our Reading Slogan is "On your mark, get set, read!" Our classroom is decorated with sports themes. If you are looking for some good suggestions to kick off the new year, here is the list of SSYR books for the 2016-2017 school year.
