• Mrs. Makar Welcome Letter 22-23

    School Words in heart

    August 2022

    Dear 3rd Grader,

    My name is Mrs. Makar, and I am going to be your 3rd grade teacher.  I am very excited about meeting you in September!  I know some of you are a little nervous about coming to a new school, but I promise you are going to LOVE SIS.  We are in classroom A-11.

    Some of you will be joining Mrs. Carroll and Mrs. Foley for Language Arts and Math but you will join the rest of the class for specials and Science and Social Studies. 

    You are going to learn many new things in 3rd grade like writing in cursive, how to multiply and work with fractions, you will learn about the continents and the USA as well as weather, butterfly life cycle and forces and interactions.  We will be reading lots of great books together and learning how to improve our writing!

    I have many fun activities planned to support your learning.  My favorite part of the day is Morning Meeting.  We go over the plan for the day, we do some great getting to know you activities, and each day has a theme.  For example, Mondays are “Missed you Monday” where each student has the chance to share about their weekend, only if they want to.  We have “Workout Wednesdays and Fit Fridays” where we do some fun workouts together. 

    We have a snack each morning around 10:30, so make sure to bring a healthy treat each day.  Our lunch is late, about 1:15, so you will need to have a good snack to hold you over!

    Please check out the classroom supply list and do your best to have everything with you the first week of school. We may have PE on the first day of school so be sure to wear your sneakers.

    I hope you are having a great summer!  I can’t believe school is going to start in just a few short weeks!  I have been busy getting the classroom ready and look forward to meeting you all very soon.  But for now, go back to enjoying your summer!



    Mrs. Makar
