Ms Anderson's 2/3 Class

Weekly Newsletter

Hello families!

For those of you who don't know me, my name is Iva Werner and I'm a mom of a 3rd grader Ella from your class and I will be your room parent this year in charge of class communications. Thank you all who joined us on Tuesday for Back to School Night. I know some of you were not able to make it, so I will try to summarize few things from the meeting in this e-mail.


Most of the info is posted on our class web site. Ms Anderson updates it very frequently, but if you have any questions, please feel free to speak to her directly.

You can access our kids daily schedule at

Since this is a split class kids are working in small groups and Ms Anderson is teaching math in rotations. When she is teaching 2nd graders math, 3rd graders are working on their problems and rotations and vice versa. We are lucky to have a TA for math time, so that kids can get help when they are working on rotations, if needed.

Afternoon Rotations:

3rd Grade

Science with Mr Acosta

Social Studies with Ms Roxanna

Health with Ms Anderson

2nd Grade

Science with Ms Melzer

Social Studies with Ms Chun

Health with Ms Anderson


Kids will have PE every Wed, with Coach F and Dance class every Thursday staring this week.

Spelling Tests are given every Friday to both 2nd and 3rd graders.


Take advantage of the homework help with Ms Anderson, right after school on Wednesdays, from 2:45-3:45.


If you have some free time and would like to help Ms Anderson is always looking for parents who can help with some admin stuff, like making copies, cutting etc and also classroom clean up (wiping desks etc).

You can also help with kids during our walking trips to the library and coming to field trips.

If you have some special skills and are good with arts and crafts talk to Ms Anderson so that she can utilize you for some future art projects with our class.
