I am extremely happy to have your child in our class this year, and look forward to sharing the responsibility of your child’s education with you!
Third Grade is a wonderful year and I know we can make it a super experience for your student! We have lots of work to do but manage to enjoy ourselves while we do it. This year you will receive a weekly newsletter letter on Mondays to keep you informed of curriculum, class events and important dates.
We live the FISH! Philosophy daily at Chahta-Ima, and I ask for your cooperation in helping me teach my students to accept responsibility for their actions and develop self-discipline.

FISH! Philosophy
Be There
Choose Your Attitude
Make Someone’s Day
Have Fun

Mastery of multiplication facts is a very important part of third grade. I encourage my parents to invest in multiplication and division flashcards. Consistent practice helps with memorization and eases student frustration.
If you need me or have any questions please email me or call the school and leave a message.
It is going to be a great year!
Your partner in education,
Mr. O’Connell
