• Dear Parents,

    I am so excited that your child is a part of my 3rd grade family this year! Although this year is going to be different than past school years, I am still committed to providing your child a safe and exciting space to grow their brains in 3rd grade. We will get through this together, with the safety of your child as a top priority. In order to help your child have a successful school year there are a few things that you can do:

    • Please explore our class website frequently throughout the year to stay up to date on important information and highlights of the activities going on in Room 20. 
    • Assist your child in joining our Google Classroom! View instructions on joining here.
    • Please make sure that your child’s Chromebook is charged every night and ready to be used during the school day.

    Your child will have work due daily in Google Classroom. You can find a daily agenda in the Student Portal section of my webpage. Please help me to teach your child responsibility by completing their work every day and being punctual for our Google Meets/Hangouts. 

    As we are trying to cut back on the amount of papers traveling to and from various locations for health reasons, please contact me through email instead of a written note if possible (spapa@marsd.org). Don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions this year as I know that this is uncharted territory for us all! 

    Thank you in advance for all of your support throughout this school year! I can't wait to meet you and your child in September!


    Miss Samantha Papa
