•      Welcome to 3rd Grade!!  I am really excited to be your child's 3rd grade teacher this school year.  Not only will I educate your child academically, but I will also do everything I can to ensure your child's safety, build his/her self-esteem, enourage him/her to work to their greatest potential, and instill within your child proper conduct and attitude within the walls of Lakehurst Elementary School.  

          I believe that attendance is very important.  Your child should be in school every day unless s/he is sick.  Consistency and routine are key to a child's education.  The day is filled with learning experiences for every child so I also suggest keeping your child in school for the entire school day.  Even missing the last hour of school can put your child behind and work will have to be made up.   I am proud to be your child's teacher and look forward to a happy, healthy, and safe school year.

    Mrs. Chapman
