Ms. Tracy Mitchell
I am originally from Pennsylvania. There I earned my undergraduate degree in Elementary and Special Education from Slippery Rock University. I began my teaching career in Richmond, Indiana in a specialized program educating students with emotional and behavioral disabilities. While there I earned my Masters in Special Education from Ball State University. After 8 years, I decided to move south. I came to East Clayton in 2005. I taught 3rd grade for 9 years and 4th grade for 4 years.
Field Trip to Historic Oakview County Park
We are taking our first field trip to Historic Oakview County Park on November 20th. The cost is $3.00. The program fits very nicely in our social studies curriculum. Students will participate in the programs: Change Over Time, From Field to Fiber, and In the Farm's Kitchen. The space within the programs is limited which is why there is a limit on parent chaperones-2 per class. In order to make it fair, we are utilizing the lottery system to select the chaperones. Parents who may be deciding to attend because this is a public arena are not guaranteed entry into the school sessions due to the limited spaces. We are only allotted enough spaces for the children, staff members, and 2 parent chaperones per class. Please understand and respect Historic Oakview's rules & regulations. We are looking forward to a fun, educational experience.
Students need to remember to dress for the weather and bring a packed lunch from home.
If you forgot to order your student's pictures, it is not too late. You can still order them on line. Go to strawbridge.net our school code is: 102151
We will be having our Harvest Breakfast on Monday, November 19th at 9:15 to 10:00. Parents are invited to attend. Invitations were sent home in Friday Folders. If you are able to assist by donating food and supplies, please click the link below and check out our class' signup genuis. Thank you.
Progress Information/Reports & Conference Sign-ups
Students are bringing home the assessment information in their progress report envelopes. Due to the fact that we in the 3rd grade have spend a great deal of our time assessing the children, this information along with weeking assignments and assessments are more valuable indicators of your child's progress than an official progress report. You will also find a letter about upcoming parent/teacher conferences. Please return this document indicating the type of conference you would like as well as any area of concern. Or, you may choose not to have a conference at this time. You may ask to have a conference scheduled at anytime in the future should you like to discuss your student's progress. Please use the link to the Signup Genuis below to select your desired date and time from those avaliable.
