Happy September! The class is settling in and beginning to develop the skills necessary to be strong, independent, hard-working third graders. One of the most important things that you can do at home to support this growth, and I can't say it loud enough or often enough, is have your child reading with you, to you, or alone every night. That 20 to 30 minutes a night is time well spent.
Thanks to all of you who attended Open House. I tried to cover the year and help with any questions, but if you have others, please do not hesitate to call or email me.
