Fall is here !
Ms. Heather Killian
Welcome to Third Grade,  it is a blessing to be your teacher this 2019-2020 academic school year 🙂


Please be patient at dismissal.  Until I get to know the parents/caretakers, I cannot let them run off without making eye contact with the person picking them up.  Thank you for your cooperation.

***  If your child takes the bus home, and they are not taking it at some point, please make sure to send in a note.  If your child is going home with someone who is not on your list, a note must also be sent in. 


Water Bottles:  Absolutely, no METAL water bottles are allowed in the classroom.  Please send in a thermos or a plastic reusable water bottle.  Thank you!  

Students must always be in COMPLETE uniform. Please see handbook. Any questions, you may call the office. Shoes MUST be tied, and students must wear a brown or black belt.  Boys must have a short hair cut, and girls’ hair must be tied back, in a pony tail, bun, or braid.  

Bathroom and Nurse:  We are frequenting the bathroom and nurse way too much. I will never deny a child, but it should not become excessive.  Now that the weather is cooler, there is no need to drink an entire water bottle before 9 AM.  If this becomes an issue, I cannot have water bottles in the classroom.  They may get a sip of water when they use the bathroom.  
Many students have allergies.  Please make sure to give them what they need before sending to school, so they may have a productive day, and not ask to see the nurse all day long.
