Sylvia McFadden | Third Grade

Dear Parents and Students,

Welcome to Third Grade!  I hope you are enjoying the last few weeks of summer while looking forward to the opening of school.

Our first three days of school will end with a 1:00pm dismissal.  Please be sure to bring a snack and lunch on those days.  On the first day of school, you do not have to bring everything on the Third Grade Supply List.  Please bring only the following items on the supply list on the first day:

  1. Homework Folder (label it “Homework Folder” and write your name on it)
  2. Sharpened pencils and art supplies in one soft pouch (scissors and glue are included in the soft pencil pouch)
  3.   2  containers of wipes
  4.   1   box of tissues
  5.   2   Composition Books (labeled with your child’s name, then label one book “Homework” and the other one “Writer’s Notebook”)
  6.   $1.50 in an envelope marked with your name and labeled “Handwriting Notebook”


Next, please bring in a family picture to decorate our walls in the classroom.

Finally, enjoy these last few weeks of vacation.  I look forward to meeting you all on the first day of school.
