Hello, Third Grade Parents and Students!
My name is Sarah Fordham. This will be my eighteenth year as an educator and my fourteenth year teaching at Centerville Elementary. I am very excited about working with your child!
During the school year, we plan to work on goals that will improve reading and writing skills, create independent workers, develop responsible citizens, and develop problem solving skills. Please work with your child on becoming more independent and responsible at home as we work on this at school.
Students will have homework to review what we are learning in class. Homework is checked for completion not for correction. In addition to written homework, students will be required to read for 20 minutes each night.
Agendas & Class Dojo
Agendas are used for parent teacher communication. Please check and sign your child’s agenda each night. Also, please connect to ClassDojo to stay informed about behavior, class events, or as an additional form of communication.
Graded assignments will be sent home in the students’ Monday folders. For every subject class work is 70% of their grade, tests and quizzes or tests are 20%, and homework is 10% of their grade.
90-100 = A 70-79 = C
80-89 = B 69 and below = F
If you ever have any questions or concerns, please feel free to give me a call at 953-0400 or contact me via ClassDojo. You may also email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I am looking forward to the upcoming school year. I hope to make it memorable for you and your child.
Thank you for your support,
