Welcome to Third Grade!
Dear Parents of rising Third Graders,
It is with great enthusiasm that I look forward to meeting you, teaching your children, and working with you to ensure they reach their highest potential. I am confident that this will be an outstanding year for all of us.
It will be to your child’s advantage to maintain their math and reading skills over the summer. I realize the summer is an opportunity for families to spend time together and enjoy time off. Therefore, I recommend using flashcards in addition and subtraction to maintain those skills and a 15 – 20 minute reading regime, encompassing reading to others, reading to self, and listening to reading. Those activities are easy to accomplish without taking over your summer but will bridge the gap of learning that occurs over the summer for most students. This is especially true if your child had challenges in either of these areas this year.
For those looking for a greater variety of school activities and challenges, I am including a list of resources. You can find the list under Resources on my class page. I hope everyone has a joyful and blessed summer vacation!
See you next year,

Hello! My name is Ms. Gonzales and I am currently studying to earn a Masters Degree in Elementary Education from Marymount University. That means I am both a student and a teacher! I love to read and will be reading with you and to you this school year. I have a beautiful dog named Luna, my favorite color is green, and I actually was a student at Holy Family too!
I hope that we will all become one amazing and hardworking family this year so that we all can have the best year ever!
