Welcome 3rd grade monkeys of

Room 214!!!




Dear Future Monkey of Room 209,


Hello! My name is Mrs. Vernon and I will be your third-grade teacher this year.  I hope that you have been enjoying your summer so far as I know my family and I have.  I have spent much of my summer hanging out with my two boys, Evan, 7 and Owen, 4  We have spent time this summer swimming, at the beach, playing baseball, and much more.  The Vernons are all big football fans, although my husband is a Cowboys fan and I am an Eagles fan, which always makes football season interesting in our house.  My son Evan just began his third season of flag football and my son Owen began his first season of flag football as a Bethlehem Bulldogs.  Although I am sad to see the summer end, I am excited to start a new school year with you.

Over the summer, I have been spending time preparing our new classroom, as I moved rooms again this school year. We will spend the few first days of school getting to know one another so we can become a team that cares about each other and our school.  We will establish guidelines, expectations, and goals and discuss what we need to do to have the best year possible!  I am truly looking forward to an amazing time hanging around with all the monkeys of room 209.


Traditionally third grade is a huge transitional year, therefore, I’m asking you to bring some supplies to school on the first day to help make the school year go smoothly.  Please bring the following:

  • Five 2-pocket plastic (if possible) folders of the following preferred colors: blue, yellow, green, red, and orange (folder sections should be on the bottom, not on the side)            

  • Two 1-subject wide ruled, spiral notebooks with perforated pages and holes

  • A sturdy pencil box to hold all of your supplies

  • Two highlighters – any colors

  • Two black Sharpie Extra/Ultra-Fine Point Permanent Markers

  • Four glue sticks

  • One pack of colored pencils - 12 or 24 count (sharpen them please)

  • One 4-pack of low-odor (if possible) bullet tip Expo Dry-Erase Markers

  • One old, dark colored sock to erase your whiteboard or a whiteboard eraser

  • Twelve #2 pencils (sharpened)

  • One 1 inch hard covered binder

  • Two packs of 3x3 Sticky Notes

  • A set of earbuds (headphones)

  • A sturdy clipboard

I look forward to seeing each of you on the first day of school!



Mrs. Vernon
