• Dear 3rd Grade Families,


           I am writing to ask you to become a partner with me in your child's education.  I will only have your child for a short time so I want to make a contribution that will last a lifetime.


          I know my teaching must begin with making children feel at home in the classroom and helping all the children come together into a learning community.  The community is made up of unique individuals, each with his or her own learning style, interests, history, hopes, and dreams.


          Would you please help me by taking a moment to write about your child?  What is your child like?  What are his or her interests?  What are things you know, as a parent, that would be important for me to know?  I want to know how your child thinks and plays.  How do you see your child as a learner and as a person?  I ask that you send this to me by Friday, September 16th.  Feel free to email it as well ~ hschill@newhanover.k12.nj.us.   


          Thank you for your cooperation.  I look forward to a wonderful partnership in your child's education.


          Thank you,

          Mrs. Schill
