3rd Grade

Welcome to 3rd Grade with Mrs. Waller

Happy August!!!  I can't believe the summer is almost over.  I hope you are all well rested and ready for a wonderful school year together.  I will try to update this webpage as often as possible. 
Please make sure all supplies and books are labeled with your son or daughters name.  If you can make the book drop off night I will have boxes/bins labeled where you can put supplies in.  If your not sure where they should go please leave them on your son or daughters desk and I will help your child organize them once school starts.

All homework will be written in your son or daughters agenda and I will post it on the class calendar as well. September 4th and 5th are both half days.  We have school Mass on Friday September 7th at 8:30.  We hope you can join us!!  Meet the teacher night is Tuesday, September 11th.  See you there!!!!




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.
