Welcome Back Families
Great 1st Day of School 2015/16
I would like to introduce myself and welcome you to Grade 3 and my classroom. My name is Vera Day and I will be leading your children through the great adventure that is Grade 3. The students and I have completed our first day at school in flying colors. They have met new friends, in a new class, with a new teacher. Quite a lot for one day I would say. I hope your children are arriving home with smiles on their faces and excitement in their hearts and minds.
A big part of this first few days will be spent setting up classroom routines and building our own learning community. In the third grade we place a large emphasis on building an environment of respect and responsibility. We will learn to work together and support one another. Students will focus on effective communication and what it takes to make appropriate decisions at school. Children will get a chance to practice being responsible by completing and handing in their homework on time. Please see my blog for specifics on homework and other important information.
The Elementary School runs on a six-day cycle and a monthly calendar has been attached to this blog and will come home in your child’s folder each month also, so that you can keep track of which days your child has various specials. Library and Technology are also apart of the cycle. Note that the students are encouraged to borrow and/or return library books as needed.
It is a joy and a privilege to be part of your family’s life this year. We are all an integral part of the learning process and should be there to support each other in any way possible. Please don’t hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or drop me a note in your child’s communication log, I will get back to you as soon as possible. Let’s have a great year by not only learning and exploring new ideas, but also having tons of fun at the same time!
