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.

Because you are an essential part of your child’s education, please feel free to contact Overton Elementary if you have any questions.

Thank you in advance for your time and support.
