                      Welcome to Ms. Rodriguez’s Third Grade Class!


Welcome back to school! I am thrilled to start this new journey together!
As you all know, there are going to be many changes happening this year that will be new for each and every one of us. There are new rules and regulations set in place to keep your child as healthy and happy as possible. In our class, we always show each other respect and should always be considerate of others’ feelings. We will be learning a ton throughout the year, while having fun doing so!



Important information for the coming week is as follows (6/14–6/18):


  • Tuesday (6/15): Last day of in-person classes for Cohort B.
  • Wednesday (6/16): Last day of in-person classes for Cohort A.

  • Thursday (6/17): Half Day online classes and Graduation for 8th graders.
