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 is as follows:

  • October 27th: Progress Reports 
  • Trunk or Treat will take place in our School Yard (Parking Lot) at 12:30pm on Oct. 29th — Students may dress in appropriate Halloween costumes, or dress down in Halloween colors.
  • November 2nd: Election Day–Virtual School Day.
  • SCGSTL is a peanut-free school. NO PEANUT PRODUCTS! Checking packaging ingredients before sending lunch or snacks for your child.
  • Parent Reminder: COVID Screenings MUST be done online by 7:15 am. No paper copies will be given at the door after Oct. 1st. No child will be allowed to enter the building without the screening done prior to entering the building. Our goal is to protect. Detect. Avoid school closure. 


Inclement weather

*Please keep in mind this is a Post-COVID school year and there are different procedures to enter the building.

  • COVID Screenings must be checked before children enter the building. Screening MUST be done by 7:15 am.
  •  Make sure if it is raining, children have rain gear on as they wait outside to enter the building and we check to see COVID screenings have been completed.
  • If it is cold, make sure children are wearing warm attire so they are not cold while we make sure their screening has been completed
  • Children are considered late after 8 am. 
  • When waiting outside to either pick up your child or drop your child off, please wait in an organized line socially distant outside. The goal is to make sure we are setting positive examples for our children and acknowledging how important it is to stand patiently and socially distant when we are waiting our turn to enter the building.

Double Good Popcorn Fundraiser

Posted on December 2, 2021

It is that time of the year again! 

SCGSTL has teamed up with Double Good Popcorn to raise money for the technology in our building. Our goal is to one day become a paperless school! Going paperless will give our children the competitive advantage of learning through technology as they navigate their educational journey. It will also help us try to eliminate our carbon footprint by saving trees.  

Raising money for our school technology includes, but is not limited to:

  •  Chromebooks for every child
  •  Upgrades on the smartboards
  • Online resources for children
  • Upgrading WIFI and internet speed
  •  Upgrading online assessments
  • Introduce competitive and informative STREAM programs
  • Provide professional development for teachers on the newest and latest instructional trends for children. 

Why not offer your family, relatives, & friends the opportunity to purchase some of the best gourmet popcorn known to man and help raise money to create a competitive edge for your child(ren)’s education in technology.

The event is 100% online through Pop-Up Stores that you will create on your phone and send out to everyone! There is no money to collect, no forms to fill out, nothing to send out. All orders and payments are made online and the products are shipped directly to the customer ANYWHERE IN THE USA! All you do is keep sharing your Pop-Up store and watch your funds grow! Easy Peasy!

The event is open for 5 DAYS ONLY starting December 6th at 5 pm and ends December 10th at 5 pm.

Here’s What You Do:

  • Download the Double Good App create an account with your name and email. The app is available on IOS and Android

Since we want this to be competitive and fun here are some prizes the top 3 selling classes will earn:

  • 1st Prize: Pizza Party
