Welcome students and parents! Thank you for visiting our class website. This site has been designed to keep you informed of what is happening at Hembree Springs and in our classroom community. We'll study and work on so many exciting projects this year! Third grade is considered to be one of the most critical years in elementary education. It is a time for students to transition from developing basic skills to acquiring academic accountability and independence. Ultimately, it is a time for students to become responsible, life-long learners.
