Dear Families,



   I would like to welcome you and your child to the third grade! In order to make this a rewarding and enjoyable experience for all, I would like to recommend the following ideas:



   o Fill out and return the “Emergency Information form(s)


   o Choose a “Homework Buddy” who can take your child’s work home in the event that your child is absent from school


   o Provide appropriate school supplies (see website – supply list tab)


   o Sign your child’s “Assignment Pad” daily.


   o Check your child’s “Homework Folder” for any notices being sent home and work that needs to be completed


   o Provide a place to complete homework/study which is free from distractions.


   o Create and implement a “Homework Contract” that suits the needs of your child. (Contract will be sent home on the first day of school)


   o Establish good study habits from the beginning of the school year. A good routine is so important!



As we are about to begin a new school year, I wanted to welcome you to the third grade! I hope you are having a great summer and are excited to go back to school! School begins on Tuesday, September 5th. I am looking forward to meeting and getting to know all of you!





Mrs. Bethe
