3rd Grade

Welcome to 3rd Grade with Mrs. Waller

Happy April!! I can’t believe the year is almost over. We are continuing to focus on comprehension and looking back to find the answers.  Please practice this at home. In math we are moving on to fractions.  ALL MULTIPLICATION and DIVISION FACTS SHOULD BE MEMORIZED!

Please remind your son or daughter about appropriate behavior in the classroom, recess time, and at Mass.  Sometimes it can be hard for them to remember.

 We can use some more glue sticks, post it notes, children scissors, and dry erase makers in the classroom. If anyone has any extra they would like to donate.

Our field trip to the Museum of Natural History is this month.  The kids and myself are so excited to get to experience this trip.  More information will be sent home soon so please keep an eye out for it.



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)
