Welcome back to school!!
I am so happy to see all of the new faces this school year. So much will be happening in the 3rd grade and school wide. Our Lady of Mercy School will be going through Accreditation this year. It will be a year of learning and fun. Please keep all necessary calendars and paperwork handy to help make this year as smooth as possible.
Monday your child will be getting their homework folder along with a lot of paperwork to be read and signed by both the student and the parents. Please turn in as soon as possible.
Please go over our classroom rules and consequences with your child. The 3rd grade is a year of transition. I am expecting all students to be act in a way that is respectful of all our students in the class. Disruptions in the classroom will result in consequences. It is important that each child learn to develop self-discipline and good work habits, to resolve conflicts peacefully and to think independently. Our classroom rules will protect each student's right to safety and respect, as well as, outlining the responsibilities that each child has in maintaining class order. Our class rules are:

1. Be Responsible - Raise your hand and complete all work
2. Be Safe - Keep your hands to yourself, walk don't run and use materials wisely
3. Be Caring - Use kind words and take turns
