Hello and Welcome from Miss Heidi...

November 25, 2017
Quarter 1 report cards have gone home in backpacks. We are moving along with our Quarter 2 plans, units and discoveries. By now you child should have a comfortable routine for school in general and third grade specifically. I continue to talk about how third grade is not supposed to be easy. My students often say, "Miss Heidi, this is hard!". I smile and reply, "I know! Isn't that great?".
I remind them daily to slow down; take time to show your work; go back and reread with new eyes. I work very hard at taking the rush out of school. I want my students to relax in their learning so they can experience confidence as they face challenges each day.
Teachers are often told by administration, "Go slow to go fast". In 209 we work at living it!

A reminder about school hours:
Please know learning starts at 8:30 in 209 and the official start time for school is 8:40. We are finished with breakfast at 8:50, sharp! If you drop your child off after 8:40, please remind her/him to stop in the office for a late pass and know student breakfasts are eaten in the office after 8:50. Thank you!

As always, contact me about anything you wish to have explained.
