• Dear Third graders in Mrs. Knell's class,
         Welcome back to a brand new year!  It's hard to believe that in a few short weeks we will be starting a new and exciting year in third grade. This will be a year to learn lots of new and exciting things, and to challenge yourself in many ways.  Things will be a little different, but we will work through everything together! 
          I have been enjoying a fun, relaxing summer with my family, Mr. Knell, and my two sons Eric and Ethan.  We spent time in Wyoming and did some biking and hiking in Vermont.  I can't wait to hear about what you did this summer, and one way that we will share our summertime fun and get to know each other is by having every member of our class bring something to share to our first morning meeting on the first day.  A picture or small item that is important to each of you, or artifact that tells us something about your summer that you can hold up will be perfect! 
          Please check out our Third grade supply list posted on the website. I hope that you enjoy your last days of relaxing, but do take some time to read, and perhaps practice those  math facts.  I look forward to seeing all of you soon!
    Mrs. Knell
