Ahoy Third Grade Families,
Welcome to Pier D2! We are very excited to set off on this new school year together. Let us share a bit of our philosophy with you. We want the children in our class to feel engaged, challenged, and 'at home'. Therefore you will see us working hard and playing hard everyday. Taking responsibility, having respect, and building relationships, are important elements of becoming lifelong learners. This will be a year filled with growth and changes for all of us. The early primary grades are behind us and many new and exciting expectations are placed upon us. Much time has been spent “learning how to read”. Now it is time to “read to learn”.Third graders are capable of working independently and cooperatively on class projects and group activities. Students will be given more opportunities to lead and to follow, to collaborate, and to make stable peer relationships. Our classroom rules are life skills that should be followed at school and at home: Be Respectful & Be Responsible.Just remember that you are your child’s first teacher. You have the greatest impact. If you feel education is important, your child will pick up on that and feel that doing his/her best and getting an education is important as well. You make the difference! We will be discussing more information about our upcoming school year at Back to School Night. We are looking forward to a wonderful third grade adventure together!
