Jumping Into Learning!




Dear Students and Families,


Welcome to third grade!  My name is Mrs. Weishan and I am very eager to get to know you.   I am looking forward to an exciting year with your child.  I have been teaching for twenty-two years and each year has been unique, rewarding, and full of memories.


This year we are using the theme Jumping into Learning as we navigate the year. Third grade is a special year for kids; Ms. BigJohn and I will do our best to provide experiences for your child’s mental, physical, social, and spiritual growth. I look forward to an exciting and productive year with your student and will provide a positive and safe learning environment for him/her.  I have high expectations for your child to achieve academically and socially.

* Your child will be expected to come to school ready to learn.

* Your child will be given homework. Weekly homework will focus on literacy

and math.

* Our goal is not to disrupt home life, only to encourage learning.

* Your child is expected to display appropriate behavior that is respectful

   to him/her and to others.


This year your child will have the opportunity to learn from the many adults in the building. One thing I intend to do is combine many learning activities (inquiry projects, math lessons and social activities) with the other third grade teacher, Ms. BigJohn. We believe that students grow from different teaching styles yet benefit from consistent learning content and support.


Throughout my years of teaching, I have become committed to the importance of parent involvement in a student’s education.  I firmly believe that each student receives the best education possible when the teacher and the parent work together as a team.  You are welcome to visit the classroom any time.  I will be keeping in contact with you all year long.  I welcome your calls or emails.  Any time you have something you would like to discuss with me, please email me at weishan_k@ics-milw.org or call me at 525-6100 ext. 6124.  Thank you for your support!
