Dear Third Grade,
I hope that you haad a wonderful summer that was full of family, friends and so much fun! I want to welcome you back to school! My name is Ms. Reynolds and i will be your teacher this year. It has been said that
"Success is not a place at which one arrives, but rather the spirit with which one undertakes and continues the journey."
You're probably asking yourself "Ms. Reynolds what does this mean?" Well first it means that although the end result, your grade, isy that you will make along the way as we examine the world around us, stretch our thinking, mature in character, and become a true community of learners is just as important as that end goal of your grade. This year you, your parents, and I will work together to ensure that you have a victorious journey through the third grade. In order for this journey to be successful there are some goals you must meet, they are....
*Being there - Giving 100% in all that we do
*Being responsible and disciplined
*Planning setting and meeting goals
*Being a curious explorer- get your hands dirty and S-T-R-E-T-C-H your brains!
*Making choices to be positive, encouraging, and having great attitudes
*Playing- work made fun gets done!
We will take steps together as you work towards your victory and prepare for the fourth grade. As we make this journey together you will be challeneged to grow in many ways, and if you are willing to work hard you will love the direction that this journey will take you in!
I hope that we will have a school year filled with adventures, interactive learning and many wonderful memories. I am so looking forward to working with you and your family as we partner together to make your third grade year a success. I hope that you are as excited as I am to begin this fantastic third grade voyage! I'll see you August 11th! Enjoy the rest of your summer!
