Third Grade 

Dear Parents and Guardians, 


Happy New Year and Welcome Back! We hope that everyone had a wonderful and restful time off for the holidays! We are very excited to begin a new year as we continue supporting our third graders to meet their academic goals. A new year is a new opportunity for parents to encourage their children to set goals for themselves throughout the rest of the school year. You can support your child by asking your child what he or she wants to accomplish throughout the rest of the academic school year.  Moreover, you can help your child create a plan to achieve their goals by making a list of steps that can help guide your child towards their accomplishments.  


Communication is important.  Please make sure that you check the Class Dojo messages daily.  Please do not hesitate to call us at the school, send us an email/Dojo message, or schedule a virtual meeting if you ever have any questions! 



Thank you in advance for your continued help and support!  


Wishing you all Healthy and Happy New Year, 

Ms. Popoteur, Ms. Perciballi and Mrs. Spencer
