Third Grade

April 2021

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Spring is here! It is hard to believe but spring break is just a memory! The weather is getting warmer and baseball season will soon begin, just to remind us that Spring is here! State Examinations will begin soon we will kick off with the New York State English Language Arts Exam on April. 20th, 2021.

Our Core Value of the Month: CONFIDENCE

Having a high self-esteem helps children cope with challenges in school and beyond. You can nurture three key elements to boost your child’s confidence and self-esteem:

1. Acceptance: Tell your child you love him/her all of the time, not just when he/she is good or successful. Compliment your child more, help your child develop friendship and social skills.

2. Confidence: Emphasize his/her strengths. Accept, don’t dwell on weaknesses. Point out the progress made and make him/her see that their actions do make a difference.

3. A sense of purpose: Help your child set attainable goals. Be positive about his/her ability to succeed. Help your child see that he/she can overcome difficulties. Provide incentives and rewards.

Please remember you are welcomed to have a phone or google meet conference with your child’s teach on any day, Monday through Friday from 2:00 – 2:20 when school is in session. Teachers are also available via ClassDojo or via e-mail found below.

Please feel free to reach out to us if there are any questions or concerns!
