Welcome to 3rd grade! I am excited to loop up this year with my 2nd grade students. I would like to introduce myself to the parents and students that are new to my class. My name is Ms. Carruth, aka Ms. C. I graduated from the University of South Carolina with a degree in Elementary Education, Converse College with a degree in School Leadership, and I am a certified Read to Succeed Literacy Coach. In addition to working as a classroom teacher, I have served as a Reading Specialist, District Literacy Coordinator, Private Consultant, and most recently a Cognitive Coach.
At PGS, teachers use the College and Career Readiness and South Carolina State Standards to guide instruction. Your child will receive instruction daily in Reading, English Language Arts, Spelling, Math, Science/Social Studies, and Handwriting, as well as Music, Art, PE, Library, Computer Technology, and Guidance throughout the week.
Homework Folders are sent home daily with assignments. Please sign the newsletter each day so I know that all homework assignments are complete. Friday Folders go home each Friday with student work. It is extremely important to review this work with your child present and correct mistakes. Children learn from their mistakes and are motivated when they receive praise from people they respect….such as their parents and siblings.
This is going to be a fabulous year! If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org and the school phone number is 583-1868. You may also send a note in your child’s homework folder. Thank you in advance for your support this year!
