Welcome to Ms. LaBella’s Third Grade!
I am extremely happy to have your child in my class this year. I have been teaching for the past 28 years. My time in the classroom is split between St. Bernard and St. Tammany Parishes. This is my 20th year in St. Tammany. My husband and I reside in Slidell with our three children. I have two children in college and one daughter who teaches art for the parish!
Third Grade is a wonderful year, and I know we can make it a super experience for your student! This year you will receive a weekly newsletter on Mondays to keep you informed of curriculum, class events, and important dates. In addition, your child will receive an agenda. Please check your child’s agenda nightly for homework assignments and daily communication. I also request that you initial the agenda nightly as proof of our daily communication. Always feel free to send me a note with your comments, concerns. Open lines of communication between the parent, student, and teacher are the key to promoting an educational climate that is conducive to learning.
So that we can get better acquainted, I encourage you to set up a conference by calling the office (882-7541) sometime during the first nine week period. I hope to speak to each of you during the weeks ahead and look forward to working with you and your child. It is together that we can make the biggest difference! It is going to be a great year!
