Welcome Back

Dear parents and guardians,

Welcome to our ICT third grade class at the School of Creativity and Innovation! We are Ms. Aubourg and Ms. Arenas, we will be your child’s teachers this year. It is going to be a year full of fun, learning, and lots of adventure, we cannot wait to see what the year has in store for us.

 Third grade is an exciting year for so many reasons. Your child will learn to be more thoughtful readers and writers. We will be writing narratives, non-fiction, opinion pieces and fairytales. Your child will become better problem solvers, developing a deeper understanding of mathematical concepts. Your child will be encouraged to think critically about problems not just in math, but in our community and our world.

As third graders, your child  will be taking the NYS English Language Arts and Math Exams. We will do our very best to prepare each and every student so that they are successful. Throughout the year we expect our third graders to build their independence as they learn the importance of organization, accountability, responsible work habits, respectful behavior and safe practices.

We are eager to work as a  “teachers and parents team” to help make your child’s overall learning experience a positive and challenging one! Remember, the educational process begins at home. We are only a tool for your child. To help build on that education, we need a “helping hand” from home – that hand belongs to you!

There are so many wonderful experiences your child will have over the course of this year. It is our hope that they become independent learners who will build confidence and a lifelong love of learning.

 We are looking forward to a fantastic 2023- 2024 school year together!


Ms. Aubourg and Ms. Arenas
