Mrs. Melissa Oakes Lawson

I have been teaching for 25 years, in grades 1-5.  I am so excited that students are able to come to school for face to face learning.  My team-mates and I enjoy doing fun experiments with our third graders and this definitely works better in person. I am looking forward to a great rest of the year growing your child and preparing them for fourth grade. 

Parents can help by checking your child's planner for homework assignments and making sure your child completes each assignment. Your child will also need a timer to use, so that they can read for 20 minutes each night.  After reading, have your child complete their reading log for that date. Partner reading with your child and asking questions about what you read will certainly help them attain higher reading levels.
