Dear Third Grade Families,

    It’s hard to believe but it’s that time of the year again, the beginning of a new school year. Welcome back and welcome to SIS! While you aren’t part of the teaching staff you are just as important to your child’s education as I am. Your children receive the best education when we work as a team. It’s a parents’ enthusiasm, support, and involvement that inspires children to do their best; and a teacher’s ability to teach what they need to learn. Together we can achieve wonderful things!

    There’s a lot of excitement ahead of us, including new teachers to meet, new books to read, new friends to meet and new skills to master! I look forward to sharing in these exciting times.

    As a parent myself I know how fast time goes by. One year your child is in kindergarten and seemingly in the blink of an eye they’re in third grade! I encourage you to fully embrace the moment and urge you to take the time from your busy schedule to become familiar with our school, as well as create a homework friendly environment that will allow your children to excel.

    In closing, thank you for your commitment to your child’s education and I look forward to seeing you during our third grade open house.


    Ms. Shannon Frey
