    Welcome third grade students and parents!
    We are so glad to have you in our classes and we look forward to a great school year.

    Reading Homework is given at the discretion of each teacher. 
    Math Homework is given daily and depends on the concepts taught in class that day. Students use either their Math Text Book or Worksheet distributed by teacher. 
    Science or Social Studies Homework will be given occasionally and is at the discretion of your child's teacher.
