• Parents and Students,
       I would like to welcome you and your child to our 3rd grade classroom.  The following information includes links, schedules, and policies of importance.  I strive to maintain a classroom that is conducive to learning through the use of technology, independent practice, and group activities.  If you have any questions or comments regarding these policies, please feel free to contact me.
     
    School Hours
       Children should report to the Gym if arriving prior to 8:40 a.m.  Class begins promptly at 8:45 a.m.  Students are dismissed at 3:45 p.m.; early dismissal on Fridays at 2:45.
     
    Lunch
       Our lunch is 12:05-12:25 each day; Recess is 12:25-12:55.  Please send lunch money in an envelope with your child’s first & last name, room 505, and money amount.  Look for menus at the beginning of each month or check Branson Public Schools.  You may also check the balance and pay your child’s lunch account through this link.
     
    Change in Dismissal
       In order to ride a different bus, or ride home with someone out of the ordinary, the office must receive a note from you.  If there is no note or phone call, the child will go home in the usual manner.
     
    Student Take-Home Folder
       Student folder is an important method of contact between parent and teacher.  Check this folder for homework, notes, graded work, and other important school correspondence each day.  The folder will include a responsibility report.  The folder should be returned each morning with a parent signature and will be checked by Ms. Conner every day.

    Student Curriculum
       Branson Public Schools has adopted the Missouri Learning Standards as a guideline for student expectations.
       Reading a variety of good books in/outside the classroom is an important part of our reading program.  You are encouraged to listen to your child read at every opportunity.
       An essential skill of third grade math is the mastery of the basic facts of addition and subtraction.  Most third grade math objectives are difficult to meet if the basic facts have not been mastered.  If your child is having any trouble recalling these, they should work on them at home.  The memorization of these facts will lead to the successful learning of multiplication, division, and fractions.
       I hope this information will help to make 3rd Grade a wonderful year of learning.
