Did You Know? We are citizens of the world – not just the classroom. Because of this, we have greater purpose, a responsibility to be a good citizen, and a need for respect, courtesy and compassion. The choices we make - good or bad – not only affect ourselves, but others. We will practice making good choices every day in our studies.
Working Together Each of you will have a turn doing a special job for our classroom, and later on we will determine them! • Errand Runner • Secretary • Basket Carrier • Time Keeper • Room Keepers (2) • Paper Deliverers(2) • Paper Collectors (2) • Math Helper • Garbage Assistants/Cafeteria Workers (2) • Line Leader • Ticket Master • DJ • Make Up Work Helper • Light Person
Setting an Example As third graders, all of your younger peers will be looking to you as role models. I know this is a great responsibility, but as your teacher I know you will do a wonderful job!
