Your 3rd Grade Team
Building relationships with students and creating positive learning experiences both play a major role in our philosophy as educators. Our primary goal is to ignite the spark and joy of learning in our students! Along the way, we strive to provide students with the tools they need for success this year and beyond, and to help them practice using these tools until they can use them independently - building a strong foundation for future learning. Incorporating communication, creativity, collaboration, and critical thinking into our daily routine is paramount to creating a classroom environment where students can and will succeed. If learning is fun and students are engaged, everyone wins!
Welcome to 3rd Grade! Each student will contribute much to our collective growth this year - and are very important to our classroom family of learners! Our students have many talents and gifts, and we're excited to help students share these this year.
We hope these webpages will be a valuable resource to guide you through some of the fundamentals of 3rd grade. Please bookmark this site, and be sure to check back often as we update these pages frequently for you. Consider this site to be your roadmap since our time together this year will truly involve a journey! This is a year of transitions for our students - with increasing opportunities to show that demonstrate responsibility, and with many chances to grow, show kindness and respect for all, as we learn together.
Throughout this journey, we are ready, willing, and available if you need help! Use the buttons to the right as a direct link to email your teacher. Have no fear - your 3rd grade teachers are here to work with you to guide and lead you through the year!
