Image result for ela clip art

I am Ms. Davis and I would like to welcome your child to Third Grade. This is my eighth year of teaching at Minnie Ruffin Elementary School, and my sixth year of teaching third grade. I am looking forward to getting to know both you, and your child, this year.  Third grade students will achieve much this year in terms of academic growth, greater self-confidence, and improved social skills. Good communication between parent, teacher, and student is very important for your child’s academic growth. I am available to meet with parents EVERY day after school and with a scheduled parent teacher conference during available times of the school day. Unfortunately, I am not able to meet with parents before school starts in the morning, as students are coming in then, and they need all of my attention. For parents who use e-mail, I normally check my e-mail daily, and this is often the quickest, and most efficient way to get in touch with me, or to discuss any of your concerns. I will respond promptly. Please feel free to e-mail me at:


  If you have any special questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to come in any time; or send me a note with your child in the morning, or by e-mail; or set up a conference. You may also call the school directly at (318) 322-3447 Ext. 4614.  Thanks in advance for your concern and participation in your child’s education.
