Summer Letter

Hello Third Graders!
I hope everyone has been enjoying summer, learning new things and having fun! I am feeling very well and getting ready for the baby, who will be here soon. Also I have been busy getting everything ready for all of you to start third grade off great! Even though I will miss you for a part of the year while I am home with the baby I know you will be having such an amazing experience with Mrs. Sleeper, who will be teaching for me while I am gone. I have included a message from her:

My name is Ms. Sleeper, and I am really excited to be your teacher while Mrs.
Wentworth is home with her new baby. I’m looking forward to meeting each of you and your
families and sharing our summer adventures. Prior to having our 2 children, Mae
and Ben, I was a 3rd grade teacher at your school for almost 10 years. For the past
9 years, I have been designing science curriculum and teaching 1000’s of students
yearly for the MSAD 75 and Brunswick Schools. I am a really curious person, and I
like to spend my free time exploring, reading, and going on family adventures with
my husband Rick and 2 children. It’s been a lot of fun meeting with Mrs. Wentworth
to discuss all the great learning experiences you’ve had at YES. I think you are really
going to enjoy all the fun, new things we are planning for this school year!
My school email will be:

We hope you come to the drop-in day Thursday, August 28th anytime from 9:30-10:30. This is a great time to drop off any school supplies!
Also, on the first day of school we would like everyone to bring in an “artifact” that represents something that happened or that you did over the summer. For example, I could bring in a magnet from New York (where I went this summer) or a hammer to represent that I worked on some house projects. We’ll share these artifacts and use them for a writing project but they will come back home later.
Here are a few things to know:
Snacks: We will have a morning snack around 10:30 every morning. It is great when students have a large healthy snack to keep them going until lunchtime. (Our lunch is later in the day this year.)
Website: On our website there is a list of school supplies to bring in. Also it has our new schedule and some units we’ll be learning about this year.
Specials’ Schedule:
Monday: PE   Tuesday: Music      Wednesday: Library  Thursday:  Art      Friday: Guidance

I hope you enjoy your last few days of summer! I will look for you on the playground Tuesday morning.

Mrs. Wentworth & Mrs. Sleeper
