Welcome to Mrs. Sgambati's Third Grade at Washington Elementary School!
We have a very busy and exciting year in store for us! In our 3rd grade classroom, all students will enjoy a rigorous, challenging program that is engaging and appropriate for addressing each individual student’s needs. Your child will work toward meeting and exceeding state standards and toward acquiring the tools/skills necessary for his/her future, academically and otherwise. Each student will have the opportunity to develop his/her reading, writing, spelling and other academic skills and knowledge through a wide variety of literature, hands-on activities, historical resources, manipulatives, and technology. Students will be engaged in activities that develop higher level thinking skills as they work together to increase their knowledge and develop social skills.
I realize that teaching your child is a privilege, as well as a tremendous responsibility. I will do my best this year to ensure that each student has a motivating and safe learning experience in the classroom. However, I cannot do this alone. I need your help. We both need to be partners in the learning process. I need each of you to encourage your child at home by helping to ensure that they have completed their assignments, and help them study for quizzes, if necessary. I know with your help that we are going to have a great year!
