 Welcome to third-grade, Mrs. Furniss' class!  It is a privilege to teach your children.  We are following the 7 habits of Stephen Covey's Leader In Me.  Your child should be able to tell you what they are and describe how they apply to their daily life at school.  The habits include:  Be Proactive, Begin with the end in mind. Put first things first, Think win-win, Seek first to understand, then to be understood, Synergize and Sharpen the saw.

Assignment books come home nightly.  Homework should be listed in it.   I rarely give homework on weekends.  Study spelling words daily.  I encourage students to read each night.  There are many websites with educational activities listed on my webpage that I encourage students participation in with your permission.

Outstanding leaders are chosen each day to be leaders of the day!  These students are given more leadership responsibilities for that day!  They get to wear the leader lanyard for the day.
