Welcome to Third Grade!

Hello Families,

I am so excited to meet a great group of third graders! I am glad to have the opportunity to be your child’s teacher! I will be sharing lots of information on our class blog over the next few weeks so please make sure you SUBSCRIBE so you won’t miss a post! You can do this by typing your email in the box on the right side of the blog and clicking subscribe.
As we enter a school year with lots of changes, I want you to know that I am committed to making a safe and comfortable learning environment for each of my third graders. We will work together to take care of each other and build up our growth mindset as we learn new routines.

SCHOOL SUPPLIES:
I have created a School Supply page at the top of the blog. You can find it HERE. We will not be sharing supplies this year so it will be important for your child to have their own individual items labeled with their name. Some of the items you send in will also be used in specials classes.

It will be important to send in one healthy snack each day for our morning snack break.

SURVEY
I look forward to getting to know your third grader this year. If you could, please fill out this survey to share any other information that would be helpful. Thank you!

OUR NEW PRINCIPAL:
If you have not done so already, please read the blog post from Mr. Waldie! We are excited to welcome him to our Georgetown family! Make sure you SUBSCRIBE to the school blog so you won’t miss announcements from the office or information from Mr. Waldie.

CLASSROOM DONATIONS:
If you are looking for another way to help out our classroom, please take a look at my Amazon Wishlist. Thank you for your support!!

SEE YOU SOON!!

Students and Parents,

I look forward to meeting you at our school open house on Wednesday, August 21. You may meet me and check out our classroom any time between 6:30 and 7:30pm. Students may bring in their school supplies to put in their desk. I’m excited to see you!
Be sure to read a little bit about me on the About Ms Van Arkel page.

If you are interested in donating items to our class, at the open house I will have a wish list of supplies that will be helpful in our classroom this year. If you’d like to donate a book to our class, please see my Amazon wishlist HERE. Thank you in advance for any and all donations to our classroom! We appreciate it so much!

See you soon!!
Ms Van Arkel 🙂

See you on Tuesday!!

Parents and Students,

It was so fun to meet you all at our school open house last night! I can tell we have a great group of third graders. I’m really excited to learn together this year!

Thank you for being so generous with the donations to our classroom! We appreciate it so much!!

A few reminders:
-Make sure your child brings gym shoes to leave at school. We have P.E. on Tuesday.
-Please let me or the office know if there is ever a change in your child’s transportation home. It is important to me that our third graders get home safely and that we are in communication about this. Thanks!

Be sure to look inside the folders you brought home.
There are two assignments for students to bring in on Tuesday:
1. Summer Celebration
2. Get to Know You page -green paper

Parents also have two assignments 🙂
1. Take a look inside the big envelope, read over the forms, and send the necessary forms back to school.
2. Complete the Get to Know You page -orange paper

 

Thank you!!
