Dear Student,


Welcome to 3rd grade!  My name is Mrs. LaRubbio and I will be your teacher this year.  I hope you are having a wonderful summer! My summer has been extremely exciting and very busy.  I have spent a lot of time preparing for this school year and I’m looking forward to meeting you soon.  


Over the summer I went to the beach and a lake house.  Wait until you see the fish I caught! I can’t wait to show you some pictures and I will be writing about my adventures during our first writing unit.  I’m excited to hear all about your summer endeavors too! We will have many of our own new adventures throughout this year, too!


We will be learning about many exciting topics. In Language Arts, we will embark on an adventure with our reading and writing workshop programs!  We will be exploring all types of genres while practicing our reading and writing skills. You will learn how to keep a writer’s notebook while enjoying so many wonderful books of your choice! We will also be involved with an author study of Roald Dahl. Our Science units are captivating and include topics such as forces and interactions, life cycles and traits as well as weather and climate. This year in Math, we will learn about multiplication, geometry, measurement and more using our math program, GO MATH! Finally, in Social Studies we will learn about communities, including Bernards Township.


When you arrive on the first day of school, you will find me in Room 220. My goal is to help you realize how important it is to stay organized. I have attached a list of school supplies you will need to help you succeed in 3rd grade. Please bring these supplies and a healthy snack on the first day of school. Please tell your parents that this is a full day. If you ordered a supply kit it will have everything you need! 


Enjoy the rest of your summer!

Mrs. LaRubbio
