Welcome to Grade 3! This is Mrs. Crisco:

 Mrs. Crisco

Hello new third graders and families!  I am looking forward to meeting all of you and hope you have had a great summer. 


I spent the first two weeks in Italy and the rest of the time painting my house. Our precious, stickie-fingered, indoor-tricycle-riding, juice-box-squeezing, wall-artist granddaughter has been hard on our house. It looks so much better. I am now ready to put away the paintbrush, scrub off the paint, and head back to school.


This will be my (wait- counting on my fingers) 33rd year at Scenic Heights Elementary. I have three adult children and they all went to Scenic Heights.  It feels like home and the teachers there, my family.


I have taught second, third, and fourth grade.  Third grade, however. is my favorite.  Every year is a totally different adventure.  I am excited to start ours.

The four most important things you can do to ensure a successful year:

We Dojo

I use Class Dojo to communicate with parents and to share classroom photos.  Parents join by providing their email addresses.  It is a fun and easy way to keep in touch.

A class newsletter goes home every week showing:

*That week's spelling words
*That week's reading vocabulary words, definitions, and skills

*The science vocabulary words and definitions for our current science unit

*Important news and information

I look forward to meeting you at orientation on Thursday, August 9th from 9:00 - 11:00.  Bring your supplies at that time.
