Dear Parents and Guardians,
Welcome! This is my 12th year teaching, and I am very excited to teach your student during another great year at Augusta Independent. Your child and their success is very important! Please encourage your student to complete their homework, study, and work hard. 3rd grade is a pivotal year in which students move into the intermediate grades. They will learn their multiplication and division facts, read more exciting material, and enjoy learning about the world around them. It will be essential that they have your support.
Students will have homework 4 nights a week. I will send home a homework sheet each week. It will contain their spelling words and math facts, along with their assignments. Please sign it daily and have your child return the sheet and homework on Friday so they can enjoy Panther Club.
i-Ready, MobyMax, and ClassDojo are important sites used on our classroom. i-Ready provides math and reading practice, MobyMax provides practice to develop math fact fluency, and ClassDojo is a behavior management program. I will be sending home information to help you access each of the tools at home. Also, please check your student's agenda often because they will list important notes.
If you need to contact me, you can e-mail through the school website or leave a message with the secretary. I will contact you as quickly as possible. I look forward to working with you and your child!
Ms. Maria Hitt
