Dear Families and Students,
Welcome to THIRD GRADE at Westside Elementary! My name is Jamie Brynteson (pronounced “Brinson”) and I will be your child’s third grade homeroom and/or math & science teacher this school year. I am very excited about the opportunity to get to know you and I am looking forward to an exciting and productive school year!
My goal this year is to nurture and encourage your child as a reader, a writer, a mathematician, a scientist, and a good citizen. I will continue to help your child develop an enthusiasm for math and science through the use of technology, hands-on assignments, and your child’s ability to explore math. It is my goal to make sure your child will gain an in depth knowledge of number sense and problem solving by reading, writing, and applying math skills in their everyday lives.
What Your Child Needs
• A book bag full of their school supplies (see the 3rd grade supply list)
• Lots of encouragement and a BIG hug each morning
• 30 minutes each night to review skills and practice reading…PLEASE help your child review each day!
I will be sending home newsletters throughout the year to inform you about any upcoming news. I believe it is very important for teachers and parents to have wonderful communication skills together. Your newsletters will include schedules, suggestions on how to help your child become an active learner, important school information, classroom news, and information about their classes and subjects.
If you have any questions or concerns of if you would like to schedule a conference, you can contact me at Westside Elementary School (770) 748-0831) or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Once again, welcome to THIRD GRADE! Let’s work together to make this the best year ever!
Jamie Brynteson, 3rd Grade Teacher
