Welcome Welcome to Third Grade at Snow Heights! I’m looking forward to an exciting year that will be fun and rewarding for your child. I am also working towards implementing a curriculum that will foster your child’s physical, social, emotional, and intellectual growth. I truly feel that children learn best if they are in an environment that they enjoy. Therefore, I am striving to create a classroom that allows your child to develop a love for learning. One of the biggest contributors to a successful year is an open communication between parents and teachers. I am eager to get to know each of you! I will be contacting each of you for a conference in mid to late September. ** Remind101
