Dear Parents,

Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year. I am excited to have the opportunity to work with your child. Third grade is a year filled with growth and learning. The children and I will spend the first week getting to know each other and reviewing some second grade skills.

My goal for the year is to provide a safe and comfortable learning environment for your child, and one in which they always feel successful. I know that each child is capable and eager to learn, and I will do my part to meet the individual needs of your child. It is very important to have a positive communication line between school and home, so please contact me if you have any concerns. The Canby Elementary School number is 223-2003. You may email me at adam.richter@canbylancers.org.

Your child will be using their red folder to bring work that is completed and work that needs to be completed as homework, to and from school. Please make it a habit to check the folder every night with your child.

We will be using the Monday folders again this year, so please send any important papers that need to be returned to the school in them. The folders will be sent home every Monday and need to be brought back Tuesday.

Upcoming school events you should be aware of include Open House/Burger Feed on September 14th and Parent/Teacher Conferences on October 17th.

Please mark those dates on your calendar. Studies show that parental involvement in a child’s education is one of the strongest indicators of student achievement.

I am looking forward to an exciting learning experience for your child and myself!

 

Sincerely,

Mr. Richter
