    Welcome tRoom 35!


    Dear Parents and Third Graders, 

    Welcome to third grade at Evans City Elementary School! My name is Ms. Whitney and I will be your child's third grade teacher. This will be my fourth year teaching but it will be my first year teaching third grade. Before moving to third grade, I taught first grade at Evans City for two years. I also taught second grade in the State College Area School District. I am looking forward to seeing some familiar faces from my first year teaching at ECE. I have been very busy preparing our classroom and cannot wait to get the school year started! 

    It is my goal to create a fun and welcoming learning environment for your child. Your child will participate in engaging and challenging learning activities where independence is fostered. Our classroom is set up using a workshop style approach which allows for a flexible learning environment that will meet the needs of each unique learner in Room 35. 

    Communication between teacher and parent is an important component of your child's success. Please know that there will always be an open line of communication between us. After all, we have one very important thing in common, your child! I will be sending home a weekly newsletter to keep you updated on what we are learning. I also encourage you to contact me at any time with questions, comments, or concerns. 

    The school visitation is on August 20th and 21st from 9-11 am. I will be in my classroom on Tuesday, August 20th from 9:00-11:00. Please be aware that I might not be in the classroom on the 21st. I would love the opportunity to meet my new wonderful third grade students. Otherwise, I will meet them on the first day of school! Please join me for Meet the Teacher night on Thursday, September 5th from 6:00-7:30pm. 

    The beginning of a new school year is an exciting time. If you have any questions or concerns that I can help with before Meet the Teacher Night on the 5th, give me a call or send me an email. I will do my best to respond within a timely manner. I hope you all enjoy the rest of your summer!
