3rd Grade

Welcome to 3rd Grade with Mrs. Waller

Merry Christmas everyone! This is going to be a busy but fun month.  The children all did great at our Thanksgiving Mass. I am so proud of them!  We will be reading some fun stories in class with our reading program.

There are a lot of things happening this month and the children are very excited about Christmas coming up so we are going to do the best we can to get as much done as we can.  Please remind your son or daughter about appropriate behavior in the classroom and at recess time.  Sometimes with all the excitement it can be hard for them to remember. Please make sure to look at all the dates of events this month.

Thank you to the O'Neill family for the pencil sharpener. It is greatly appreciated!!!

The weather is getting cold.  We will be outside at recess weather permitting.  Please send in a jacket for your son or daughter to wear on chilly days. Please make sure to label all jackets and sweatshirts with your son or daughters name.

We will have snack everyday in class.  Please send in a healthy peanut/tree but free snack and extra drink for your son or daughter to enjoy.

Classroom wishlist: ( These are some items we can always use in the classroom if you have any extra that you can donate throughout the year)  
                                 Thank you!!!!

  Just a few housekeeping items:

If your son or daughter are absent from school an absent note MUST be sent in upon returning to school to excuse the absence.
No nail polish may be worn and all shirts must be tucked in. ( I know this is hard for the little ones)
