Welcome to the 2014-2015 School Year

August 04, 2014

I am looking forward to starting this school year with your child.  I hope that summer was relaxing, fun, and a way to rejuvenate for third grade.  In third grade, we will have walking reading.  All of the third grade students will be grouped for reading class so your child can receive the specific skills that they need.  We are also continuing the school wide LTR (leading to reading) program that we had in place last year.  So your child could be attending these classes with a different teacher than myself.  The information will be communicated with your child and you as soon as the scheduling is all put into place. 

  I am happy to announce that we have a new math series called Go Math.  We have been using it the past two years, but this year the students will receive the books and will have the example problems more readily available (for you too). 


 I will have a newsletter that will come home every Friday.  The newsletter is called "Happenings in 3D".  This letter will explain what your child learned in class that week, upcoming important dates, and also your child's AR (accelerated reader) progress.  These weekly letters are a great way for me to communicate with you. 

 If you ever have any questions or concerns you can send a note to school with your child, you can email me kschingel@cusd4.org, or you can call me at school before or after school.

Every quarter the students will take the Word Wall Test.  There are 110 words in all.  The purpose of taking all of the words is to see their progress improve during each quarter.  Below is a list of word wall words:

By working together, we will make this school year a success for your child.

Thank you,

Mrs. Schingel
