Welcome 3rd Grade Class of 2017-18!

Dear Families,

It was so nice to meet so many students and their families yesterday at Kincaid’s open house. If you were unable to come, no worries! We’ll get you caught up in no time. Lots of information will start being sent home Monday. Please try to have paperwork completed and returned on Friday. Try to have school supplies in this week also. Scroll down to see the list.

Parents, please send me a written note on Monday morning if you didn’t talk with me about your child’s transportation plans for the week. It is a hectic week, but I will personally see to it that your child gets to where they need to go.

Homework this week will be light for the children…we’ll ease into it. All homework is normally due on Fridays. Please help your child remember to return the green “home to school folder” each day. Check inside for a monthly calendar that lets you know how your child’s day went.

Here is the specials’ schedule for the week:

  • Mon: PE
  • Tues: STEM
  • Wed: PE
  • Thur: Music
  • Fri: PE

We’ll spend this first week establishing our new routines and expectations, getting to know one another, and building community. We’ll also do some assessing because we’ll want to measure your child’s growth from the start to the end of 3rd grade. In math, we’ll begin with place value and rounding 3-digit numbers.

A nutritious (non-messy) snack that can be eaten quickly should be sent in daily. Good choices include crackers, granola bars, fruit, veggies, and your child will also love keeping a water bottle here at school on these hot summer days

We’ll get our new class picture up on the blog very soon! Please check back weekly for news and highlights. I’m so excited to see the children early Monday morning!

Hope you can can fit in some fun and rest this last weekend before school begins!
