Dear 3rd Grade Families: 
We would like to invite you to Curriculum Night for your 3rd grade student coming up on Tuesday, August 20th, from 6:00-7:30pm.  Please note that this is an adults only event, and that all presentations are tailored for parents and not students. Please contact your child’s teacher with any questions.
Over the summer, our library was completely renovated and updated to help make time in the library enjoyable and more functional.  We encourage you to consider spending some time with us and enjoy the new surroundings by volunteering to help us during our weekly library time.  Our time is on Tuesdays, from 10:40-11:00, and we could use help with reading to students or helping with the checkout process. Our wonderful Librarian has set up links for our families to sign up for this rewarding experience - please take a look at the times available - we value our volunteer’s time and are grateful for their contribution to our community.  Many thanks!…

A reminder about snacks in the classroom:
Students are allowed to bring in one snack item for our morning snack time. This is not a meal, so please limit snacks to just the one item for time’s sake. Our classroom is nut free due to allergies.  Do not send in any snacks that contain nuts. Nuts are allowed during lunch time as we have a designated area for students with nut allergies.  Snack items should be limited to dry snacks that do not require utensils.  Yogurts, apple sauce or dips should be limited to lunch options. Thank you for helping us keep our carpets free of stains and odours.   We have a very ful…
Hello Parents!
It is with great enthusiasm that I introduce myself to you as your child’s homeroom teacher for third grade. My Assistant Teacher, Mrs. Bushanam, and I look forward to meeting with you and your child at Meet the Teacher night on Tuesday, July 30.
Here is just a little bit about me!

I have lived here in the valley for about 17 years now, and love being a part of the Great Hearts family. I grew up in Denver, Colorado then met my husband while we were both attending college in Lincoln, Nebraska. I graduated with a BA in Public Relations and a MA in Elementary Education.

I hold state certification in Elementary Education with an endorsement for SEI (Structured English Immersion or ESL).
