Dear Boys and Girls,
I hope you and your family are doing well and staying healthy. I'd like to welcome you to third grade and to our classroom. I saw so many of you in the hallway last year and have heard great things about you from your second grade teachers. Although this will be a very different start to a new school year, one thing is the same; I am really excited to get to know you and to work with you. This year, you will learn and practice many new things including multiplication, division, and cursive handwriting. Some of our units of study are Life Cycles, Economics, Maps and Globes, and The Solar System. You will even have the opportunity to raise your very own butterfly when we study life cycles and participate in a fun motion challenge.
I hope you are having a wonderful summer. I am definitely enjoying mine. The best part for me has been being able to spend time with my family including Mr. Moelter and our two sons, Owen and Noah who are 15 and 18 years old. We are getting ready to send Owen off to college. It seems like he was a third grader just like you not too long ago.
A list of the main supplies that you will need for third grade can be found on Jamison’s website www.cbsd.org/schools/jamison. Please ask your mom or dad to help you label all of your school supplies (including each of your pencils) with your name or initials using your thin Sharpie. Labeling pencils might sound silly, but they often end up on the floor and around the classroom. I'd also like for you to make sure you have hand sanitizer to keep inside your desk and a refillable/reusable water bottle.
I look forward to seeing you soon. Enjoy the rest of your summer.
