Third Grade

Dear Parents and Guardians,

The third grade team is thankful for the support of all parents in enforcing good habits and study skills at home. We encourage all parents to practice multiplication tables with their children nightly at home in addition to assigned math homework. As usual, students are responsible for reading each night and filling in their progress on the reading logs provided.

We look forward to meeting you all individually over the next few weeks. Please contact us if you would like to set up an appointment to meet during Parent Engagement time on Tuesdays at 2:45.

From,

The Third Grade
