Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year!

My name is Savannah Lopez.

Hello Everyone! I am excited to be teaching at Holland ISD as a 3rd Grade Math/Science Teacher!

A little about myself. I am married to Vincent Lopez of Holland. We have three wonderful children. Albert is a recent graduate of Holland ISD and is now attending Temple College. Lillian is a Jr in High School, and Andrew will be an 8th grader at Holland Middle School.

I am a graduate of Grand Canyon University with a Bachelors Degree in Early Childhood Development w/Teaching Certification. ! I have had the opportunity of working with many young children prior to working at Holland ISD. I am going on my 12th year in education and this is my 7th year working for Holland.

On my free time, I enjoy going out with my husband and children to a movie, the park, and most of all practicing anything sports related. My favorite sport is football!! Go Cowboys! Hook 'Em Horns!

 

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to call or email me. Again thank you for entrusting me with your precious little ones and I know with your commitment and involvement in your child's education we will have a fun and exciting year!

Classroom Behavior System

by: Miss Money

 


 


Play money used for 3rd grade classroom reward system

Third Graders at Holland Elementary will be using a classroom money system to encourage responsible behaviors and to help them understand how money works.  Students may earn money or be assessed fees for their personal behaviors. Teachers have class stores where the students will be able to spend their money on small items or coupons for special privileges. Sometimes there is a movie afternoon where popcorn and drinks are available for purchase. Students learn some personal financial management. They quickly realize that they can’t spend all of their classroom PLAY money at the store if they want to be able to afford the movie and snacks. This money system works with the regular classroom behavior management system and  helps keep students from losing tokens for minor classroom infractions. The regular behavior management system gives students five behavior tokens each week. Tokens are taken for not following classroom rules or procedures. Each token has a value of $2.00. Parents will notice the tokens at the bottom of the homework assignment sheet. If a token is marked off, there will be an explanation written either below the token or on the back of the assignment sheet. Parents should initial the explanation to show that they are aware of why the token was marked off. Students will be paid $2.00 for all remaining tokens.

CLASS DOJO

Holland Elementary will be using Class Dojo as our online parent communicator. It will be used to remind you or inform you of important things happening in third grade. We can also easily share pictures of your child through this app. You will be able to contact each of your child's teachers through the app. Look for a page to be coming home with instructions on how to join if you haven’t already.

 

GOOGLE CLASSROOM

 


All of HISD will be using Google Classroom again this school year. Students will be using it often during the school day so that they will be familiar with how to find assignments, complete them, and send them to their teachers. Even though your child is only using it at school, parents will be able to see a lot of what they are doing. There will also be online practice sites linked to their Google Classroom account. A student can log into their classroom account just by logging into any chrome browser with their Holland gmail account.

 

 

 


Mathematics

by: Clark Kent, cub reporter

For the first time in a long time, Holland 3rd graders will have two math teachers.  Mrs. Marshall and Mrs. Lopez are looking forward to sharing their math classes. Students in third grade will have homework this year. Some time will be provided during class to work on homework but anything not completed in class will be taken home for completion. Mrs. Marshall did say that the third graders will need to use some time at home each day to practice their math facts. Students will be taking a math fact test each Friday that will count for a grade, so it is important that they find some time to study at home. Mrs. Lopez encourages students to log into Xtramath.com for a good online math fact practice site. Fact practice worksheets can be provided for anyone that wants to practice on paper at home. As a beginning goal, parents should expect their child to complete 100 written addition facts in 5 minutes or less.


UIL Contest

Third graders have several UIL contests that they are able to participate in. They may try out for events in Story Telling, Music Memory, Chess, Ready Writing, and Spelling. Several of these are team and individual contests so, your child has two opportunities to earn a ribbon. Please encourage your child to try out for one or more of these events! 

 

I will be your child's Chess Coach this year!

We will have Chess Breakfast Club starting Mid September.

Your child will need to arrive to school every morning by 720 am.

They will need to eat their breakfast in the cafeteria as well as be finished eating by 730 am. So if you would rather feed them before on Breakfast Club days, that would be great!

I will pick them up from the cafeteria at 735 am.

Please inform your child they will need to take care of business at breakfast time, so they are ready to be picked up.

 

I will be holding a Chess Try Out on October 3, 2022.

I will provide your child with a study guide at the beginning of the year, and they will be tested on that material.

Please understand UIL Chess is tested on paper and your child will not be playing the physical one on one Chess match.

 

I will update information as the date gets closer.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.
