Welcome to Third Grade Rm 21!
Welcome to third grade at Lincoln School. I am so excited to have your child in my class! It will be a wonderful year!
My name is Kimberly Briggs and I will be your child’s third grade teacher for the 2018 – 2019 school year. I am excited for the year to begin!
The Lincoln Elementary School Open House is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, September 13th. This evening meeting is for parents, and is a time to learn more about the curriculum and activities pertaining to third grade.
At the end of this message, there is a link to a brief Google Form to fill out in order for me to get to know you and your child better. Your feedback is very important, so please take a few moments to answer the short questionnaire.
Here is a brief run-down of some need-to-know information:
Please use the following methods when communicating the absence of your child.
1. Call the School Attendance line at 708.366.7340 and leave a detailed message or
2. Send an email 24-7 to firstname.lastname@example.org
If you pre-ordered your child’s supplies, they are already in the classroom. If you did not order in advance, please send all of your child’s supplies on the first day of school.
Third Grade students are each given an iPad for their work at school. In our classroom, we will use Google Classroom, a private blended learning platform to assign, distribute, and manage our workflow. To share work privately with parents, students will use Seesaw. Viewing your child's work is simple, but will require the download of the Seesaw Parent app on your device.
SNACKS and WATER
Your child should bring a refillable water bottle to school especially on hot days. A district wide snack list will be forthcoming on the healthy snacks that are allowed in the classroom. We are a peanut and tree nut free classroom. It is imperative that we ensure a safe learning environment for every child.
Please feel free to email me at email@example.com if you have any questions or concerns. I will respond quickly. You can also contact me by phone at 708-366-7340 x8169. I will send a newsletter home every other Friday. Friday folders will be sent home each week. Please review the work, sign the parent sheet, and have your child return it on the following Monday. Also, please check your child's Seesaw account frequently.
I strongly encourage daily reading, spending time with family and friends, interest-based and extracurricular activities.
Please take a few minutes and fill out the following the questionnaire. Your feedback is greatly appreciated.
I look forward to working with you and your child this year! I know this will be a fantastic year in third grade.
