Welcome to Third Grade

Dear Parents,

Welcome to third grade! Here is a list of supplies your child will need for the upcoming school year. Please have your child’s supplies labeled so that they can be returned easily if they are misplaced. Also, please note that since your child will be provided with both a homework folder and an assignment book, he/she will not need to bring a binder to organize his/her homework. Also, due to limited space in our classroom, please do not purchase a wheeled backpack. For the amount of materials third graders will be transporting, a regular backpack will work sufficiently. Thank you in advance for your help in getting your child set for a fantastic school year!


    • 1 large pencil box
    • 10 sharpened pencils (no mechanical pencils, please)
    • 2 erasers
    • 2 red pens (for editing)
    • 1 notebook of 8 ½ x 11 lined paper
    • 1 box of crayons (no more than 24, please)
    • 1 pack of markers
    • 1 pair of scissors
    • 4 glue sticks
    • 1 regular size box of tissues
    • 1 package of "Wet Ones" Wipes
    • 1 box of Ziploc bags (any size is helpful)

Let Me Be A Child

Reminder for Loving Parents

Let me know when I make
you proud. And help me to
have pride in my own

Let me earn your trust. Then
trust me. I won't let you down.

Let me try my wings. If I fall,
let me know it's OK. And encourage
me to try again.

Let me know you love me. With a
hug. Or a pat on the back. Or, when I
need it, with a firm, but gentle "No."

Let me be me. Let me change. Let
me grow.

Let me tell you when I'm feeling bad.
Or angry. Even at you. And let me
know that even on my worst days, you
still like me.

Let me dream. Share my joy when
my dreams come true. Share my tears
when they don't.

Let me feel secure in my home. Help
me realize that love is always
there...that I can depend on you no
matter what.

Let me run...let me laugh...let me play.
And most of all LET ME BE A CHILD.
