I would like to begin by thanking you for such a wonderful start to the school year! I just know that we’re going to have a great year!
Meet the Teacher
This coming Monday, GCS will be hosting a Meet the Teacher time from 3:00-4:00pm. This is a time for parents that are new to the school to meet their child(ren)’s teacher(s) or for returning parents to meet any new teachers. Parents are asked to remain in their vehicles until 3:00pm and then come into GCS through the main school doors. In order for multiple parents to meet the various teachers, please ensure that your time with each teacher is kept to a minimum.
Grade 3 will be using the ClassDojo app throughout the day to encourage positive participation in class. Although there is a built-in messaging system, please use this app only for checking in on how your child has participated daily and for the occasional display of his or her work. All communication to me should be sent via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students will begin studying the first Spelling List and our first Spelling Test will take place on Friday, Sept.16th. Please ensure that the words are being practiced at home regularly. There is a list of a variety of activities you may wish to try out as alternative ways to practice Spelling words. You do not need to inform me of how you are practicing…as long as you ARE practicing!
Wishing you all a perfectly pleasant weekend,
