Mrs. Katie Newhard

Dear 3rd Grade Families,

Welcome to third grade! My name is Mrs. Katie Newhard, and I graduated from Shippensburg University. I am currently attending Shippensburg University again and working to acquire my master’s degree in reading. I have previously taught second grade with Montgomery County Public Schools, and first grade with Washington County Public Schools. I began my career in the Waynesboro Area School District teaching sixth grade at Fairview. I made the switch to third grade last year and I am very excited to be teaching third grade again this year. I am looking forward to a great school year with your student!

I also would like to take this opportunity to remind and invite you to Fairview’s Back to School night, which will be held on Thursday, August 17th from 7:30-8:15 PM. I am hopeful you are able to attend as I am looking forward to meeting you and discussing the upcoming school year. Lots of important information will be shared on this night and any questions you may have will be answered. In third grade, we will build our literacy skills continuing the use of the Wonders program, and through reading fiction and nonfiction texts. We will also write informational, persuasive, and narrative pieces. In science we will explore weather, space, and minerals among other topics. Within social studies we will learn about citizenship, how government works, and keep up-to-date with current events through Scholastic News. In math, we will continue using Everyday Math and study topics including: measurement, fractions, multiplication, division, geometry, and place value.

I want this school year to be a positive one for your student. If you have any questions or concerns about anything happening in the classroom, please feel free to contact me and I would be happy to discuss them with you. I look forward to working with you and your student toward a successful school year!
