Dear Parent/Guardians:

WELCOME TO THE WONDERFUL WORLD OF 3RD GRADE!!!!!! I am excited about the new school year and hope that you are too. It is my hope that this will be an awesome and fantastic year for you, your child, and me. I have looked forward all summer to working with your child. This is the year they will become independent learners. Below are a few things that I would like to share with you:

** Parent/ Teacher Relationships are necessary! It is absolutely necessary for us to have a respectful and working relationship. I need you to assist your child with homework, encourage them to do their best, ensure they are studying each and every week, and remind them about the proper behavior that should be displayed at school each school day. Click the SUBSCRIBE button on each teacher's webpage (Mrs. Kizzie/Mrs. Easterling) to be updated when new material is added. Also, please feel free to contact me about student progress, or any problem or challenge that may come up, and update any contact information as it may change throughout the year. 

** HOMEWORK! Nightly Reading and daily Math homework are required and logged in their TEAM binder). Science and Social Studies Homework consists of vocabulary study and completing any work not finished in class. Please ask your child to share and show their homework to you. Homework is posted on their teachers website. 

** STATE TESTING! Each 3rd Grader will take a READING and MATHEMATICS STAAR test. We will prepare for these tests throughout the year. The students will take several practice exams in class so that they are familiar with the format of the test. Strong partnerships between home and school are essential for maximizing student success. If you know that your child struggles in one or both of these areas please help support them by working with them on the materials sent home, and keep in constant contact with me to ensure success throughout the year and on the test.
**School and Classroom Behavior (Be SAFE, Be RESPONSIBLE, Be RESPECTFUL)
CC Hardy is a PBIS school, which means we use a positive behavior approach to define and teach expected behaviors. In my classroom and throughout the school we hold a high expectation for appropriate student behaviors.  Appropriate behavior is rewarded in my classroom with "Gold Tickets." Your student will be learning about our classroom rules in the first weeks of school.  My classroom is a collaborative learning environment where students are expected to follow procedures for small group and whole class learning.

I look forward to meeting each and every one of you over the course of the school year. Please do not hesitate to call me or visit our classroom. Again, I hope that this year will be a great experience for you and your child. If there are any questions or concerns, I can be reached via the school at (936)856-1241.

Thank you for your time and cooperation.

Mrs. Brown
