• Welcome to Third Grade

                                                                                                              

    Arrivals and Departures

    The school day begins promptly at 8:00 a.m. and ends at 3:25. If your child eats breakfast at school please make sure to drop them off early enough for them to finish breakfast before 7:50 a.m.  Students are expected to be in their classroom by 8:00 or they may be counted late. If your child is to go home a different way than usual, you must send a note or call the office. This is to ensure the safety of your child.

     

    Attendance

    Each student is expected to attend school everyday unless otherwise exempted by law.  When returning to school after an absence, a student must bring a signed and dated note that describes the reason for the absence.  Failure to send a note will result in an unexcused absence. Excessive absences, tardiness, or leaving early could result in an attendance hearing and/or disciplinary actions. 

     

    Departmentalization

    Third grade is departmentalized, which means your child will have two teachers.  One teacher will teach Math, Science and one teacher will teach Reading, Writing, Social Studies and Language Arts .   Your child’s assigned classroom teacher is your child’s homeroom teacher.  Mrs. Vasquez and Ms. Asrar are my two partner teachers.  Mrs. Vasquez will be teaching Science and Writing.  Ms. Asrar is the Math and Social Studies teacher.

    Behavior

    Behavior affects the entire school day. If behavior is out of control, learning is difficult for everyone. The following behavior plan will be utilized in our classrooms, promoting a successful learning environment. 

     

    Class Rules
    • Follow directions the 1st time given.
    • Keep your hands, feet, and other objects to yourself.
    • Use good manners.
    • Raise your hand and wait for permission to leave your seat.
    • Treat others the way you wished to be treated

     

     

     

     

    Please note that for extreme behavior or continuing disruptive behavior, students maybe sent to another classroom or directly to the office.

     

    Homework

    Students will have homework on a daily basis.  Homework is a little thing that can make a big difference, especially in the K-2 years. The most important homework your child will have is their reading homework, which will consist of a take-home book.  Please take the time to listen to your child read.  When you take the time to read with your child, it shows your child that reading is important.  Math homework will be sent home Monday through Thursday.  Occasionally, unfinished class work may be sent home for your child to complete.  Students choosing not to do their homework at home will complete it during recess time.   

     

    Graded papers

    Graded papers will be sent home on Tuesdays in their  gray Tuesday Folder.
