    Dear Student,

     It’s hard to believe it’s August.  We hope you and your family have been having a great summer. We are sure you have been staying busy swimming, playing ball, vacationing, or some other activity you enjoy. Hopefully you have also been doing some reading!

    Here’s a little information about your teachers: 

    Mrs. Hammrich is originally from Ipswich. My husband and I have three children – two sons and one daughter.  We have 5 grandchildren who keep us very busy.  I enjoy spending time with my family, especially my grandchildren.  Michael and I have a lot of fun with them and enjoy spoiling them.  In my free time, I enjoy doing some golfing, riding bike, and cruising around in my convertible!!

    Mrs. Phillips is originally from Frederick SD.  My husband and I have 3 children.  Two of them are excited to start kindergarten here this fall. Our family enjoys camping, boating, and being outdoors.  As a family we enjoy watching and playing sports.  In my free time, I enjoy reading, golfing, and hiking.  


    We are excited that you will be in our class and look forward to the new school year.  In third grade we will continue to build on skills you have learned in earlier grades, and we will learn many new skills as well.  We will continue to learn about numbers and their place value in math and then learn more about multiplication, division, and fractions later in the school year.  We will also have our Language Arts, Social Studies, and Science classes.  Something new you will have is cursive handwriting. We will be quite busy in 3rd grade.  Together we can make this a great school year. 

    Enjoy the next few weeks and we look forward to seeing you and your parents at the open house August 19th.  Feel free to bring your schoolbag and supplies with you that night.  We also look forward to seeing you on the first day of school which will be August 21st. 




    Mrs. Hammrich and Mrs. Phillips
