Welcome to the Third Grade:
We are so happy to have you join the 3rd grade family at Usher-Collier Elementary School. We are departmentalized at this grade level. Our scholars will have 4 teachers covering the content area of Reading, English Language Arts, Writing, Math, Science and Social Studies. We will learn so many wonderful things that will prepare you for the future.
It is important for all students to come to school every day by 7:15 am ready to learn. Students are held accountable for what they learn each day. If we show up every day, ready to learn, academic growth will happen. It is encouraged that each 3rd grader reads for 30 minutes daily.
Third grade is a very important milestone in your educational career. We will Work Hard, Get Smart, and Make No Excuses! Communication is the key to a successful school year. Please reach out to your child’s home room teacher to schedule a conference. Remember it takes a village!
