Welcome to Griffis' third-grade class. We are going to have an exciting school year. Last year in second-grade students learned about the continent of South America. This year third graders will learn about the continent of Africa. I look forward to teaching your student about the different cultures of the continent of Africa. Third grade will be a year of learning new things and I look forward to watching your student reach all of his/her academic goals and becoming independent and inquisitive learners.
