Dear Third Grade Families,
I would like to welcome you and your child to third grade! Third grade is going to be filled with lots of new adventures, new friends and lots of fun!
Below is a list of items that your child will receive if you have purchased the pre-packaged school supply kit. If you chose not to purchase the pre-packaged supply kit, no worries, it just means you will be responsible for purchasing all of the supplies on this page on your own. Please keep in mind, as the year progresses, you may need to supplement additional supplies that are easily consumable. Please periodically, check with your child to see how their supplies are holding up.

Please bring school supplies in at the Open House in September or on the first day of school. If you pre-ordered school supplies they will be delivered to Charlton Heights.
When third grade begins, students are expected to have fluency in addition and subtraction facts. It is a great idea to start introducing your child to multiplication and division facts as they will develop mastery of all facts by the end of third grade. Basic fact knowledge will play a part in our math placement process.
Students should also be in the habit of reading for at least 20 minutes daily. Reading is the foundation to all subject areas.
Enjoy your summer! I will see you in September!
