Welcome to Ms. Purvis' 3rd grade class. I am very excited to be teaching my own homeroom of Bayvale Elementary third graders this year, as we will not be switching classes. I look forward to working with each and every parent, guardian, and family member to ensure that our students have a very successful year.Parents please make sure students are working on their packets daily. This will be the easiest way for them to complete assignments and recieve help if they are still unsure about a skill or strategy that was included in teh packet. The packet will be returned to the teacher upon return to school.Parents and guardians please make sure your student is spending time on iReady and USATestPrep also. Students need to continue reviewing skills we have covered in class and work with those we have not had the chance to spend lots of class time on. iReady Reading and Math will be monitored by myself and Mrs. Darling along with USATestPrep. Lets keep our students motivated to learn. The school year is not over!!
