Welcome to Volma Overton Elementary
3rd Grade 2019/20
A winner is a dreamer who never gives up. - Nelson Mandela
It is very exciting to have your child in our 4rd Grade classrooms. We look forward to working with you to make this a successful and exciting school year for our scholars.
We have set high academic goals for our scholars.
This year our scholars will be growing in reading, writing, science and math.
You can help your scholar meet these goals by:
Reading daily for 30 minutes
Writing letters, cards and in journals
Practice the math facts and tables
We will achieve this growth through:
- Reading: comparing and connecting genras
Writing: how to edit and revise works of writing / how to write a composition
Math: How to add and subtract fractions.
Keeping a productive classroom requires healthly habits for scholars:
Wash hands with soap
Cover cough and sneezes with inside of elbow
limit TV and screentime
Get plenty of rest
STAY: on time, on task, on a path to success and college bound!
This is a pivotal year for skills to come together for each scholar to become more developed as a learner.
