    Dear New Student,

    My name is Mrs. Makar and I am going to be your teacher for 3rd grade. I can’t wait to meet you! Some of us met back in May when you were still 2nd graders and you came to visit SIS. I have been busy preparing the classroom for September (we are in classroom A-11). I look forward to a new and exciting school year. We are going to be studying some very exciting topics this year. In science we do many experiments and hands on activities. In social studies we will be learning about the USA and China. We will be doing lots of writing in our “Writer’s Notebooks” and we will read many wonderful books. You will learn to write in cursive and in math we will be busy measuring, estimating, adding, subtracting and learning how to multiply and divide!

    I hope you have been enjoying your summer vacation. I have been spending time with my family reading and relaxing. I also got to visit my daughter who now lives in Louisiana!

    I am really looking forward to meeting you on the first day of school. Please bring a healthy snack and a drink. You may want to bring a light jacket too. Since SIS is air conditioned it gets a little chilly especially when we are still dressed for summer! Please check out our class website for your supply list! Enjoy the rest of your summer. The start of the school year is just around the corner! See you in just a few short weeks!


    Mrs. J. Makar
