Welcome to the Third Grade
Dear 3rd grade families,
Welcome to a very exciting school year. This year we have a new assistant, Mrs. Bravo, who will bring many of her talents and experiences to our class. The school has a new science program that will challenge us, as well as, give us a hands on experience in lab. Please remember that all girls need to have their hair tied back on lab days, which for us will be on Friday’s. All school supplies are due by Sept. 11th and Summer Book Projects are to be brought in to school on Sept. 18th. Assignment pads and Cursive Writing books are to be purchased in school. Please have students bring in $5.00 for the books. Students will be given a few of their books each day to cover. Do not use tape, contact paper or cardboard to cover the books. Looking forward to a wonderful school year.
