Hello Third Grade Families! Welcome to our class website and to the 2020/2021 school year. I am excited to share the school year with you.
I have created this website as a resource for parents and students. Please take a minute to look it over! You will be able to easily find your child's Google classroom, helpful links, contact information, our class schedule, and much more (scroll below for various links).
Third grade is a fun and exciting year for both students and parents. I understand these are challenging times and I want to assure you that I am here to help you and give your child the best education possible. Your child is about to embark on a new journey in their education, which I am thrilled to be part of! I hope to make your child's third grade year one they will always remember.
Technology is constantly changing and students are having to become familiar with Chromebooks, laptops, websites, QR codes, passwords, the list goes on and on. Please help guide your child through the process of distance learning for the first couple of weeks. Your guidance is much appreciated and my goal is for your child to feel confident, not overwhelmed. Before you know it, they will be pros at navigating this new way of learning. And if you need help, this website will be a great resource for you. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email me. My contact information can be found by clicking on the "Contact Info" button below. I still have a lot to learn, but I will do my best to help you.
Happy 2020/2021 school year!
My name is Mr. Diaz and I am so excited to be your third grade teacher this year! This is my 24th year teaching at Rio Vista Elementary School. I know our school year isn't starting out the way we planned, but no matter where we are learning (home or school), we are going to have a positive attitude, work hard, and always try our best. I have many engaging activities to share with you and can't wait to start learning together. I believe you should come to school every day, feeling loved and that you belong. I will greet each of you at the virtual classroom door, welcoming you into your second home. I want you to take risks and not be scared to make mistakes because that's what learning is all about...
"Mistakes are Proof That You Are Trying"
I will always be here to cheer you on! I am beyond excited for this school year and am so happy to share it with YOU!!
