Welcome and Supply List

we are going


Welcome to 3rd Grade!

Dear Third Grader,

     Welcome to 3rd grade at Millstone River!  It's going to be a great year!

  We work together as a team, so this year, you will have two teachers! We love working together to create a safe, happy, fun-filled classroom community, and we cannot wait until you arrive to help build our classroom family! 

    As a third grader, you will have many new and exciting responsibilities.  Be sure that you are ready to conquer these new adventures each day by getting a good night’s rest.  Please remember to eat breakfast each morning, and bring a healthy snack and drink. 

    In order to prepare you for the new school year, please see the “School Supplies for 2018-2019” link on the left side of this page for a list of materials you will need for the first day of school.

     Other than your school supplies, we have one last item we would like you to bring during the first week of school.  We would like you to bring in something that is special to you to share with the class. Try to pick something that could teach us some information about you! You can also choose something that is a souvenir from summer vacation.

Examples of things you can bring in:

-a favorite stuffed animal or book

-a special photograph

-a special souvenir, award or trophy

-an object from a collection

-something you have made

(Please don't bring video games, breakable items and/or live pets)

    During our “Class Meetings” throughout the first week, we will share these items with one another.  After you have chosen your item, place it in a paper or plastic bag, put your name on it, and bring it on the first day. 

     This year is going to be filled with smiles, learning and friends! Enjoy the rest of your summer!
