Welcome to THIRD grade at Blakeney Elementary School. I am very excited to have your child in my class for this 2012-2013 school year. I will do my very best to ensure that your child will grow and mature intellectually, socially, and emotionally. I will be teaching Reading, Math, Language Arts, Science, and Social Studies this year. Mrs. Cooper is my assistant. We work together as a team and are asking for your support and cooperation throughout the school year. We believe in appropriate discipline, fairness, respect for others, and good communication. Our goal is to give your child the best possible education. Please note that your child will have homework each night, with the exception of Friday; however, homework will be assigned over the weekend if the need arises. I strongly encourage your active involvement with your child’s education and with our class. If you have any free time or materials to contribute, either would be greatly appreciated. I look forward to working with your child and you this year. If you have any questions, please feel free to call me at 706-554-2265. My planning time is from 10:14 to 10:52.
