Welcome to Mrs. Shelley’s third grade!

Communication is key! We are all here for the same reason, and that is to make sure our children receive the best education they can. This means you and I must be a team. Learning does not only take place in the classroom, and it is very important that we communicate to make sure the needs of our children are met in and out of the classroom.

Reminder: Check OptionC as often as possible so that you are in the loop with your child’s grades.

A few ways to contact me:
-Class Dojo app accessed through cell phone or computer
-Class Folder: This folder goes home and comes back everyday. You must check this folder daily! Please send tuition or other money in an envelope with your child’s name and what it is for.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation. I am confident that we will have a great year!
