Third Grade

Mr. Chip Cash, Teacher

We are looking forward to having a really good year. You will find that third grade is quite different from the primary grades, so we try to make the transition as smooth as possible for parents and for students. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or concerns. We are available to talk with you between 3:10-3:30 PM. If these times are not convenient, you may call the office and set up a conference.

Important Information:

Agendas- All students will receive an assignment book to keep track of homework assignments. Each student is responsible for copying the daily assignment from the board. Parents are to sign their child’s agenda nightly when all homework has been completed and checked. The agenda is to come to and from school daily.

Attendance-Good attendance plays a vital role in your child’s success. The third grade curriculum is very challenging. Students that are habitually tardy, absent or picked up early have a difficult time staying up with class material.

Homework-Students will receive homework Monday through Thursday nights. Normally, homework will consist of spelling, Wordly Wise, reading, writing, and math. Any unfinished class work will be sent home as homework. Homework is given so your child will practice skills taught during the day. Please allow for a quiet workspace for your child to complete their home assignments, guide them when necessary and check their work for accuracy and understanding.

Homework Folders-Students will have a homework folder to keep up with their work. It is the student’s responsibility to return homework on time. We will send your child’s work home weekly. Please take time to review your child’s work.
