3rd Grade

Welcome to 3rd Grade! On this group you will find all the information you need to stay informed this year. This includes homework posts, newsletters, photos, conference sign-ups and any other information regarding field trips or special activities. We are excited to partner with you and watch the students learn and grow this year!

Setting Class Mission Statement: In our homeroom we learn to be leaders by being respectful and positive to others and ourselves.  

Peters Class Mission Statement: This year we will be leaders by being first time listeners, being present, being responsible, and being problem solvers. We promise to encourage others and be caring so we can learn and have fun! 

Watkins Class Mission Statement: Our class will become leaders by becoming role models for other students. One way to be a role model is to keep our R’s up and walk quietly in line. We are also kind and respectful to other students. 

Our WIG (Wildly Important Goal) is to line up quickly and quietly and remain that way.
