• Welcome to third grade!  I am so happy to have you as part of our class.

    This year you will have lots of opportunities to meet new friends and learn many new things.  We are going to work together as a team to make sure that you learn all of the exciting third grade material we’ve set up for you, as well as some things that you will get a chance to choose.

    Since we will be working together as a team, I want you to know what I promise to do for you during the school year:

    • I promise to always speak respectfully to you.
    • I promise to make time to listen to you.
    • I promise to learn your strengths and areas of growth.
    • I promise to be flexible.
    • I promise to plan learning activities that increase your areas of strength while focusing on areas of growth.

    Now I’ll share some information about myself to help you get to know me a little better.  This will be my eighth year teaching at Edgar Road. I have taught kindergarten for the past seven years. I am very excited to move to the third grade team! I even went to Edgar Road when I was student just like you!  My husband and I have a daughter named Evelyn who just turned one year old in March. My favorite hobby is traveling, especially to the beach! This summer I went to California and the Grand Canyon.

    Families, upon reading this letter, please send a response via email so that I have your information for further communication.  Classroom news, announcements, and information will be sent to you electronically.  Thank you for your support and cooperation.  I look forward to working with you and your child!

    If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me at: wilkes.kelly@wgmail.org

    Sincerely yours,

    Mrs. Wilkes
