Welcome to Third Grade

I can’t wait to meet each of you. I want to learn about things that you are interested in and things you want to learn more about. We will be a class team. We will begin the year with lots of fun activities that will help us get to know each other.

Here is a little information about me. I have 11 brothers and sisters. I grew up in Cambridge MA, which is a city right next to Boston. I live in Edgartown with my husband Mike and my two children Colin and Rita. Colin is 15 and Rita is 12. We have 2 pet guinea pigs named Cocoa and Smores that we love a lot.

Ms. Linda Wanamaker will be my assistant this year. I think you will find that both she and I are very approachable.

I want to say welcome to the second floor of our school. I know you are going to love it.

The supplies you will need this year will be a 1 inch three ring binder, a handheld pencil sharpener that catches the shavings, a 12 pack of Crayola erasable pencils and a pair of scissors. I have pencil boxes to offer for you to use or you can bring one of your own to school.

Over the next few weeks, I will be sending you more information about this school year. For now, continue to enjoy the rest of your summer. Mrs. Hurley and Ms. Wanamaker
