Third Grade News

Week 1: 8/17/15-8/21/15

Welcome back to school! I am excited to get to know each one of my new students. I have prayed for them over the summer in preparing for the new school year. I know that God has great plans for the third grade this year! Please check the newsletter each week for homework assignments, classroom news, and coming events.

To Keep You Informed

With the hot weather, it is a good idea to send in a refillable water bottle with your child. I will allow students to keep them at their desks to stay hydrated.


Third graders will be learning some challenging concepts in math this year. Students will benefit greatly from memorizing and practicing addition and subtraction facts every day! When we begin multiplication, they will need to practice multiplication facts.


If you are interested in helping in any way with our class, we would love to have you! Please contact me by email Jana.Lafave@cussd.org


Our P.E. days are Wednesdays and Fridays. Please make sure your child wears appropriate footwear on those days.


Your child's homework assignments are listed on the reverse side of each week's newsletter. The individual assignments will be brought home in your child's blue communication folder. Please check the assignment sheet daily because not all assignments require something to be turned in, but the practice is important to your child's success.

Contact Info

Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to be your child's teacher. I look forward to partnering with you as your child learns and grows this year!
