Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Lena Bauer
Mrs. Bauer, Mrs. Brooks, and Ms. Jones are your third grade teachers. Several other adults work closely with our team. We truly love teaching, and we are excited to share in your educational experience.
Third grade is truly a transition year in regards to organization. Your child may benefit from a place in your home set aside just for homework. This could be a desk, table, or box containing supplies.
Your child will fill out an assignment notebook each day at school. Please sign or initial it each night. Your child will also bring home a homework folder each day. Helping your child check the assignment notebook and homework folder each night would also help model good organizational habits.
In order for learning to take place, the educational environment must be conducive to learning. Therefore, we will reward expected behavior, and we will discourage unexpected behavior. All students are entitled to a formal warning each day without consequence. We believe that no other consequence is necessary here or at home. Cool Cash is part of our positive reward system. Students earn cool cash for appropriate individual behavior. Generally we provide an opportunity to spend cool cash once a week. We also reward students for overall class behavior.
