Third Grade Symbaloo
We have found a few other helpful Symbaloo pages that we will share in our newsletters over the next few weeks. Don't forget to bookmark these websites for your child!
I am eager to get to know everyone and their families, and I would love to schedule a home visit with you!
How can you schedule a home visit?
Very simple. Please send an e-mail to our home visit coordinator, Mrs. Unal at email@example.com and give us three available dates for your child's home visit program. She will get back to you and confirm a date. (Depending on teacher’s availability, at least two of your child's teachers will be together to visit our students and parents at their homes). The best times to schedule a home visit are weekdays after 5:00 pm, and anytime during the weekends except Sunday mornings.
