Welcome to 3rd Grade!
I'm looking forward to being your third grade teacher! This is my second year teaching at Penn Elementary! I have taught many years in Prince William County and I'm excited to be at Penn Elementary. I'm looking forward to working with my students and family. I know together we can make this year one filled with many successes.
The most important person in your child's life is YOU! You are his/her first teacher and I will need your support as we meet and exceed third grade's academic challenges. Please make sure that your child reads at home, ask questions about the day at school, checking and signing the daily agenda, checking over homework, and checking over folders and papers when sent home. I appreciate your support in advance!
Please do let me know of any concerns, I believe that as we work together, your child will have a more happier year and become more accomplished as a third grade student! You can reach me a McDowell@pwcs.edu
. I look forward to building partnership between home and school which will foster communication and sharing of ideas!
