Welcome to Grade 3

Dear Third Grader,

Congratulations!  You’ve made it to grade three, the best grade of all.  We are planning an exciting year for you.  You will explore the lives of many different people from communities all around the world.  You will experiment with boats that float (and some that don’t), with magnets and electricity.  You will have iPads at your disposal to research your favorite planet, and for many other projects.  You’ll even plant a vegetable garden and raise butterflies.  There will be treats and prizes, some of which you’ve never even heard of.  You will learn to do things you never thought you could, and get better at those things you already knew.  We will be “digging in” to many great books this year, and we’d like to start with your favorites.  Please bring one of your favorite books into school on the first day.

We are Miss Kelly and Mr. Linde.  That’s right; you have two teachers this year (it’s called co-teaching).  Former students said they loved having two teachers because of the help they could get when they needed it.

We can’t wait to meet you and get started.  You should be relaxed and refreshed after your summer break – a great way to start a new school year.  We’ll see you on Thursday, September 8.


Miss Kelly & Mr. Linde
