    We have provided everything your child needs to have a successful year in 3rd grade. If you would like to bring in a small pencil case to keep inside their desks please make sure it is labeled with their name on it. It is also recommended to have an extra mask or 2 kept in your child's backpack incase one gets misplaced or dirty. Please remember that it is mandatory that children wear masks all day. 

    The students are also encouraged to bring in a water bottle each day. We will not have access to the water fountain due to the current situation, so we kindly ask that a water bottle be sent in everyday (must be water, juice will be allowed in the lunchroom).  

    Chromebooks: Please bring your charged chromebook to scool each day. 

    Binder: We will be providing a binder for stundets within the first few first days. This binder is to come back and forth with them to school everyday. We will keep all of of work in this binder, Please do not remove any papers from the binder, we will remove papers in school when they can stay at home.

     Homework Folder: We will be providing a folder for students on the first day. This folder is to come back and forth with them to school everyday. Please use this folder to send in important notes and/or homework. 

    Art Smock (optional): Please label with their name


    Since our desk storage space is limited, we ask that students refrain from bringing in large binders or multiple notebooks, folders, and supplies. Also, please no toys.

    *Please try to encourage your child to memorize their bus number and student id number*



    The best gift that you and I can give your child is the support that they need to MEMORIZE their multiplication facts. Memorization of facts frees up all of their working memory so that they can concentrate on the bigger task - solving the real problem before them.

    In our classroom, we will work hard to be "Bucket Fillers", not "Bucket Dippers"!

    But what are "Bucket Fillers" & "Bucket Dippers"?

    We're going to read the book, Have You Filled a Bucket Today?

    Image result for bucketfilling

    This book tells the story how everyone, all over the world, carries an invisible bucket with them. The way that we treat others can fill their buckets when we are kind, or we can dip from their buckets when we use unkind words and actions. Other people can fill or dip from our buckets too.

    In the first few days of school, we will spend time learning how we can fill other peoples' buckets and learning how to avoid dipping from them! You'll be able to fill your friends' buckets in our classroom by writing positive notes to them and using kind words!
