Welcome to Mrs. Wirtz's 3rd grade classroom
Meet the teacher:
Hello! My name is Mrs. Wirtz and this is my fourth year teaching at St. Christopher School and I am very excited to have the opportunity to work with your child. I have been blessed to have been given a Catholic education throughout my life and I am very blessed to be working at St. Christopher School. I have received my Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education from St. Xavier University and earned my Master’s Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Olivet Nazarene University.

There will be a color system used for classroom management. All students will start their day on green. If the student’s behavior decreases throughout the day, the student will be asked to change their card. The colors system is as follows.
Green - student had a great day
Yellow – warning
Red – student has not changed their behavior. As a result, a consequence will be given at my discretion. Some consequences may include missing some or all recess, or a student may be given an after school detention. If an after school detention is issued, your child will be given a detention slip which must be signed and returned the next day.
A: 100% - 93%
B: 92% - 85%
C: 84% - 73%
D: 72% - 65%
F: 64% or below
Completing homework assignments are important. Homework is given to reinforce lessons that have been taught and to teach responsibility. If a homework assignment is not turned in, the consequences are as follows.
1st day – lose 10 minutes of recess and one point is deducted
2nd day - a 0% will be given as a grade for that assignment
If something happens and your child will not be able to complete their homework assignment for the day, please write me a note or send me an email indicating this. There will not be any recess missed or points taken off however a note or email regarding the missing homework assignment must be given. The missing assignment will need to be turned in the following day and can be found on the St. Christopher website under 3rd grade homework.
Your child’s behavior color will be recorded each day in their student planner. Please write your initials each day in their student planner. It is important that you initial this even if your child is on green. Your child will also have written their homework in their student planner. Each homework assignment will go home daily in their green take home folder.
Every Friday your child will bring home a blue Friday folder which I have provided for you and will collect at the end of the year. The folder will include school notes and graded papers. Please review these graded papers with your child, sign folder and return Monday morning. Please keep any extra papers that do not need to be returned at home.
I can be reached weekdays from 7 a.m until 5 p.m. if you have any questions or concerns. Please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will return your email as quickly as possible.
* We will be having a small healthy snack in the morning. Please send a snack each day with your child.
* In the event that we cannot go outside for recess, please make sure that you send your child with a pair of gym shoes each day as we will be going to the gym for recess. Your child will not be able to participate in recess, if it is in the gym, without wearing gym shoes. If you have an extra pair of gym shoes, they can be kept in their cubie.
* Your child will be allowed to bring a water bottle to school. This is especially important in the warmer months. Please do not send anything besides water.
* Our lunch is at 11:40-12:10
If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please feel free to contact me at email@example.com. This is going to be a great, productive school year!
