Welcome to Third Grade Greetings

Dear Families,

I would like to welcome you and your child this school year 2017-2018 to 3rd grade. My name is Ms. Melanie Rodriguez and with pleasure I get to teach your child in my class this year. I am really excited to be part of this school community. This is my first year teaching 3rd grade here at St. Catherine of Genoa, St. Therese of Lisieux but I have experience teaching Kindergarten, 1st & 2nd grade at my home church in Long Island. I have been in the classroom for 8 years and I must say I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else than here teaching these beautiful children of God.

This is going to be a fun and exciting year. We have two goals to be accomplished throughout these next 7 months. First, our children are going to master curriculum-based skills through never-ending practice and repetition. Our children will reinforce their skills of all subjects through participation, classwork, weekly assessments and homework.  Grades will be manually inputted into Option C to be reviewed at any time. Our children will also have independent reading to be completed every night. They are expected to read a grade level book for a minimum of 30 minutes per day. The children will receive a weekly reading log that needs to be filled out daily. All homework and tests are to be signed by a parent/guardian and returned the next day.

Our second goal is to bring the children to a better understanding of God. They will learn how to grow in God’s love and how to share God’s love with others.  Most importantly the children will learn that God loves us and he has made each and every single one of us special in our own way.

If your child is a practicing Catholic, it is encouraged that the children attend mass on Sundays. Exposing the children to the church ensures that they would know it’s a special place to gather with the community to share the word of the Lord. As I am helping your children know more about God, you as the parents or guardian are the primary teachers for your children outside the classroom. It’s encouraged to pray with your child every day because prayer is very important in the growth of a child’s faith in god. You set the example and your children will follow.

I’m looking forward to getting to know you and your children during this wonderful year. I am available for meetings or phone calls every school day 7:30am & 3:15pm. If you wish to schedule a meeting, please do not hesitate to contact me through my school email address at May God Bless you All.

                    Sincerely yours,   Ms. Melanie Rodriguez
