 Wecome to Mrs. Hoskins Third Grade Class!








I am so thrilled to have your child in my classroom this year! This year will be filled with a lot of learning and adventures. Our class web page will have a lot of useful information for you to refer to. I will update the website weekly, so please check back for important information!


Homework Reminders


It is essential that your child completes all of the assigned homework each day. Planners must be signed daily. This our easiest form of communication.





App: Remind

Phone Number: (239) 458-0033


What Should I Bring On The First Day Of School?


Please send in all of your supplies (including backpack) with your child so that we may begin labeling/sorting them. You may label the supplies with your child's name prior to the first day of school. Have your child bring in a lunch box if they are eating a home packed lunch. Don't forget your smile! :)




Our class binder contains our school planner, weekly newsletters, homework, spelling word lists, vocabulary words, or other important information. This will be used as a main source of communication. Please sign your child's binder EVERY night. Please feel free to write notes to me or let me know any questions or concerns you may have in the binder. I will be checking their planners and the binders every morning for notes.




AR (Accelerated Reading)


Here are some important information to remember regarding AR this year.


  1.  You can check their scores and goal status by loging into LaunchPad. Their credentials can be located in their binders. Once you have signed into LaunchPad, go into "Instructional Apps" then to "Renaissance Home Connect."  You can click at the top of the page to set up email notifications for each test your child takes.
  2. Read the book more than once, check for understanding, and discuss it before taking a quiz. With chapter books, please stop at every chapter to discuss what happened. 
  3.  A.R. quizzes will not be deleted.
  4. Please remind them to take their time on the AR quizzes. If they miss any questions, not only does it lower their average (85% required), it also reduces the point value they recieve for that quiz.
