Dear Parents and Students ---
    Can it be possible that we are at the end of summer vacation and ready to begin a new school year?  I am looking forward to meeting each and every one of you on the first day of school and also look forward to meeting all of the parents at Back to School Night.  I am very excited to welcome you to third grade.  We are going to have a terrific year.  
     As we get into the school year I will be posting homework and special notices in our Google Classroom site.  If you have questions you can check there or send me an email.  I'll repond as quickly as possible.  If you are still having problems getting into any of the websites (Clever, Google, etc.) please let me know and I can refer your questions to Mrs. Jasin.  Questions regarding the Parent Portal should be directed to Mrs. McGrath at the Board of Ed Office.  
    Remember to check the school website for important dates and information regarding school events.  The school calendar is posted there, as well. 
    As you get ready for the new school year please remember to brush up on your addition and subtraction facts --- that's right, we will soon be starting multiplication so we need a firm foundation in adding and subtracting!   Hopefully you have completed your summer math and reading packets. They can be returned during the first two weeks of school.
    Please remember to check the supply list that was sent home in your June report card so you'll have everything you need to get started.  That list can also be found on the school website.
    I want to let you know that I'll be posting a "secret" word in these letters to parents and students.  The first one is found below.  If you would like to win your first third grade SOAR ticket just write the secret word on a sheet of paper along with your name.  These words change frequently so remember to keep checking this site.
    Ms. Davis
    The special word is:    APPLE
