Welcome Back to School


Welcome to Third Grade in Room 8.  It will be my pleasure to work with your child this year.  I believe that each child can succeed by engaging and challenging themselves with the support of the teacher, family and school community.  I look forward to a great year of learning, growth and of course fun!   

Students will bring home their homework folders this week and every week.   Please check inside. You have some important forms that need to be completed and returned to class as soon as possible.  You will also find other important forms and information. 

Students will have nightly math homework that they will bring home DAILY.  With their homework, they will bring the class work pages (problem sets). These problem sets are virtually identical to the homework, thus practicing skills, strategies, and concepts.  Students should use their problem sets for reference and help.

Students will be required to log into their Benchmark reading ( each night and follow the weekly/monthly reading calendars sent home at the beginning of the month (should keep calendar in homework folders) Students will also be required to read for at least 20 minutes each evening.  They have nightly fluency practice (1 min timed reading/comprehension). They will have multiplication fact practice at and typing practice through Typing Agent. Homework is an important opportunity for review and development of mastery. Students are expected to return homework and do online components each night.  Weekly homework assignments and class news and important information will always be posted on our class page through our school web page (Calabash Charter Academy) We will also have our Scholar of the Week research activity for OPTIONAL HOMEWORK.  Students will be given models and examples of this opportunity this week and have a reference in their homework folders to refer to.  Students that consistently research, write (IN THEIR OWN WORDS… COPYING FROM SOURCE WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED) and present for the class what they’ve learned each week, will be given extra credit in their social studies and speaking grades.  Please check our school website under “About Us” and click on our classroom for weekly news and homework assignments. Please plan to attend our Back to School Night event for more information about our classroom, procedures and expectations.  Feel free to contact me via email at

Looking forward to an outstanding year!
