Welcome to the 3rd Grade Back to School Night!

Our Philosophy
  • We believe that all students should be granted
    the right to a positive, engaging, stimulating
    learning experience.
  • We believe that students learn best in a
    structured, cooperative learning environment.
  • We believe that students can reach their highest
    potential with the collaborative efforts of
    students, parents, teachers, and support staff.
  • We believe that our role is not only to educate,
    but to inform, nurture, respect, and build the
    characters of every
  • child we teach.

  • We cannot stress enough the importance of your
    child being at school on time every day. School
    begins promptly at 845.
  • When students are tardy or picked up early, they
    are missing important instruction. We truly
    strive to Make Every Minute Count at LCM!
  • If your child is well, we want him/her at
    school!! It makes teaching very difficult when
    your child misses school. It is especially
    difficult when one skill builds upon another
    skill (such as math and writing.) Also, with
    these tough economic times in education, our
    school actually LOSES money when your child is
    absent. Please make doctor/dentist appointments
    after school and schedule trips and special
    events for non-school days. Thank you!!

Our Classroom Economy
  • Every day the students show up to work they
    will earn money. They will have a job that will
    pay weekly. They may also earn money for good
    behavior. At the end of the week they will pay
    rent for their desks. They can be fined for poor
    behavior, messy desks, or lost supplies. They
    will be able to buy different coupons with their

Classroom Management

  • Reading- read 15 pages nightly log it in your
    AR log
  • Math/Language Arts-There will also be one or two
    nightly assignments due the following day.
  • Paragraph of the Week
  • Book Reports- Book Reports will be assigned 3
    times per year. (See your childs class website
    for more info.)
  • Our goal is to help children become independent,
    proactive students. Students will be responsible
    for writing their assignments in a Homework
  • If assignments are not returned the following
    day the student will be given a Homework S.O.S,
    they must bring it back signed the next day. The
    2nd missed assignment in one week will get an
    S.O.S and detention.
