Hi! My name is Mary Jo Hannesson, and I will be your Grade Three teacher this year at North Star School. I am so excited that you will be in my class this year! I can’t wait to meet you and start our year together. I know you are going to love being a third grader!
I have been working in education for many years and have experience working with many different grade levels at 5 different schools.
Our classroom is on the second floor, some of you were in this room last year but it will have a different feel as it will be a third grade room. I have a variety of wall decorations that are important for third grade. I also have a huge classroom library. Reading is near and dear to my heart. I love books.
Our classroom is structured by a variety of hands-on learning activities, games and learning centers.
Communication is essential and I will be keeping in contact with you through texts, phone calls,and e-mails. You can also visit our class website for weekly updates, pictures, helpful resources and see everything that we are doing.
Please feel free to contact me at school at 701-968-4416, by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to working with you so your child gets the best possible education.You are welcome to visit our classroom at any time.
North Star Elementary students are offered a milk break each afternoon. Cost for the milk is $.60/ day. Please be aware that the cost of the milk program is NOT covered with Free/Reduced lunch. Many families choose to send a snack with their student each day for milk break.
Your child may bring in a water bottle each day and will be allowed to keep it at their desk to drink throughout the day.
I look forward to seeing you August 23!
