Welcome to 3rd grade!

    Thank you for purchasing all your child's supplies. Please let me know if you need any clarification.

    The 1 inch binder is a very important supply. This binder (which we will refer to as just "the planner") will house the planner and all homework or memos. These will come home in one of the pocket folders that will be put into the three ring binder. It should be emptied each night so that the child feels organized to begin the next day.
    During the first week of school, there will be numerous memos coming home that need to be filled out, signed, and returned. Completed homework should be put back in this folder so that it can be handed in first thing in the morning.
    The children will be writing their homework down in their planner each day and it will be on this website as well. At the bottom of the column for each day, there is a spot for parents to sign. This tells me you read your child's planner and are aware of any homework, upcoming tests, and special dates. The children will also be outlining the day of the week with a color that coordinates with our Clip Chart. You will learn about this fantastic tool soon! The planner is very valuable for communication and helps keep parents informed on a daily basis.
    If you have any questions before that date, please e-mail me at andrea.fitzsimmons@wcsdny.org. You may also write me a note in your child's planner, or call the school to leave a message and I will return your call as soon as I can.
    Thank you!
