    Our Class: We are starting the year with 8 third graders. 

    Arrival Time: Please drop students off between 8:00 - 8:19 a.m. K-5 students can play in the recess at this time.

    Snack: Because our lunch starts at 12:35, we will take a mid-morning snack break each day. Please bring a healthy snack to enjoy at 9:30. If you need a napkin, spoon, etc., remember to pack it with you!

    Water Bottles: You are welcome to bring a water bottle to class to keep at your desk so you can drink water (only!) during class time. Please remember to take your bottle home over the weekends for a wash.

    Lunch: Lunch is available for purchase for $3 each day, or you can send a lunch from home.

     If you’d like to set up an account online, please contact Kristin Schmid at krschmid@tlschool.net

    Getting Home: If there is a change in your Go Home Plan, please let me know by sending a note with details or contacting the office directly.

    Homework: Your MOST important homework in third grade is to read for 20 minutes each school night. We will keep a reading log in class, and you can earn coupons for responsibly completing your homework. 

    If class work is not finished, it may be sent home in your take home folder. Please complete and return any unfinished work the following school day.

    Take Home Folder: Each third grader has a Take Home Folder that is to be carried home and returned to school every day. One side is labeled “Leave at Home” and the other “Complete and Return to School.” Please show your parents/guardians your Take Home Folder every night so they know what is happening at school.  Also, feel free to send notes to me using this folder.

    PE Shoes: You need a pair of shoes just for PE. They do not have to be new, but they need to be clean on the bottom and have non-marking soles.

    Bookmobile: The Bookmobile will be visiting Trout Lake School this year! Third grade gets to check out and return books each Wednesday from 1:20-1:40. 

    Conferences: Parent-teacher conferences are scheduled for fall and spring. I am open to meet with families before scheduled conference dates and welcome your input about your child. I am also available to speak with you most days between 10:10-10:50, before, or after school. The school phone number is 395-2571.

    If you have questions, concerns, or suggestions the fastest way to communicate with me is through e-mail at e.miller@tlschool.net.  You can also send a note to school with your child or schedule a conference. Please feel free to contact me at any time.  

    It’s going to be a great year!
