Welcome to Third Grade!

Dear Parents in Room 105,

 

Welcome to the wonderful world of third grade! I am excited and enthusiastic about the school year that lies before us. Your child’s education has many facets, and the parent-teacher partnership is an important one. Together, we can make this year both a growing experience and a building block for the future of your child.

 

Below is information that will guide you through the school year.

 

Specials

The classes are on a rotating schedule. The order is: Art the first day, Music the next, and finally PE. Then, we start over: Art, Music, PE.

 

Science Lab

 Science Lab will be every Friday from 8:15-9:15. We will also have lab every fourth Monday. 

 

Library

Our library time will be every Wednesday from 1:20-1:35.

 

Friday Folders

Friday Folders are sent home each Friday. Please take time to review the included papers. This is an important process and a valuable connection between school and home. Please take out all papers and send back the folder each Monday.

 

Reading Homework

Our school adopted a no written homework policy. The most important thing your child can do is to read at least 20 minutes every day! 

 

Snacks/Water Bottles

Please provide your child with two healthy snacks each day (no candy, potato chips, or cookies, please). If you feel you are unable to provide a snack, please come talk to me. Also, your child should bring a full water bottle to school in order to stay well hydrated.

 

Birthdays

Birthday treats are allowed on your child’s birthday during our afternoon recess (2:00-2:15). Please contact me in advance if you desire to bring something so that I may plan accordingly. Bringing extra napkins will also be helpful. Thanks! J

 

 

Open House

Our RVE Open House/Ice Cream Social is Thursday, September 12 from 5:00-6:15 P.M. I am looking forward to seeing some familiar faces and meeting new families.

 

 I look forward to wonderful year together! I am happy to answer any questions - please feel free to contact me any time via email: acolyar@durangoschools.org or call me at extension 3221. Thank you in advance for all your support of Riverview Elementary School and Room 105.

 

Sincerely,

Amy Colyar
