Have a Great Summer!

Hi Families,

We had a great last day of third grade!! This was a special group of kids this year and I will miss them!
I feel very blessed to teach your children this year. Thank you all for your support, too! I sent home a packet of Summer Learning ideas to help keep your third grader engaged and learning this summer. Please look for this in your child’s folder.

I hope you have a wonderful summer!

Our last day of 3rd Grade!

I have loved teaching this group of third graders this year! They are so special to me! Thank you for your support throughout the year and especially these last few months. Thank you for encouraging your child as a learner and coaching them through a difficult transition.
I wish your family a summer of fun, family time, and relaxation!

Enjoy this video that highlights some of our moments this year.

Make sure your child has their backpack each day this week. You will see folders and papers coming home. We are cleaning out lockers and desks!

Remind your third grader to return library books.

Dear Third Grade Families, 
I have truly enjoyed having your third grader in class this year! Thank you so much for sharing your child with me. It has been so fun to grow together as learners and we have made great memories. I am so proud of each and every child! I’m so thankful for each of their talents and abilities and am glad they have been a part of our class this year. 
Thank you for your wonderful support this year and helping your third grader do their best. I appreciate you!
Enjoy the summer!

We have field day tomorrow. Please remind your child to wear shoes that they can run around in. Also, bring a water bottle.

Thursday is our last day. Dismissal is at 1:00. We will eat lunch at school and your child may still order lunch. Don’t forget to wear tie-dye shirts.

It has been a wonderful year! I have loved spending third grade with your child. Each student has become such an important part of my life. Thank you for sharing your child with me. The children have done great things this year and we have had a great time learning together.
