• Hello and Welcome to a New School Year! 

     This is just a quick note to explain some helpful information for the year.

     Homework:  Your child’s homework will consist of reading about 15-20 minutes per night and studying math facts.  I recommend you set aside about 30 minutes per night to complete these assignments and get organized for the next school day. 

     Papers sent home:  All graded work and/or work that has been completed in class will be sent home in your child’s folder.   This also includes notices from the school, book orders, and letters from me.  Please review the folder daily.  Empty the “Leave at Home” pocket.  This folder should come to school daily.

     Specials:  Specials are from 8:30-9:15 this year, and we have a rotating schedule.  To be best prepared, please have your child keep his or her gym shoes in the school locker.  Students have also been told to keep library books in their backpacks. This way students have access to their books for reading at home and at school.

    Drinks:  Please send your child to school with a filled water bottle each day.

    Arrival: I will meet your children at the third-grade door (which is the first door on the upper playground when coming from the school parking lot) and escort them to my classroom. 

    Dismissal: School-wide dismissal is at 3:15 except for Thursdays when students dismiss at 2:30.

    Communication:  I know that you may still have many questions.  Please feel free to contact me anytime.  You can reach me by phone at 728-2400 ext. 4954 or email at klmatthias@mcpsmt.org.  I will send out one communication email before school starts.  If you do not receive it, first please check your SPAM.  If it’s not there, please complete and return the form at the bottom of the page so that we may update your information in our database.

    I’m so excited to work with you as partners in your child’s education!

    Sincerely,

    Mrs. Matthias
