My name is Tiffany Gonzales and I can’t wait to get to know you and your
child! I will be teaching your child Language Arts and Social Studies. My partner teacher, Mrs. Rebekah Collins, will teach them Math and Science. I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education from Texas A&M University, College Station...WHOOP! I am certified to teach Early Childhood Education, Gifted and Talented, and English as a Second Language learners. I came to Tomball I.S.D. in 2010, after spending the first five years of my teaching
career in Spring I.S.D. I taught at Creekside Forest Elementary for four years, and this is my third year at Willow Creek.

When I am not at school, I enjoy spending time with my husband, Brandon, our daughter, Spree, and our son, Ace; reading, Crossfitting, and, watching football,
especially the Aggies and Texans!! I come from a large family. I am the
youngest of five children! All of my family lives in and around Houston,
so I also spend as much time with them as possible. I truly love teaching, and
I am really looking forward to the 2016-2017 school year!

Communication between home and school is the first step in making this
year a successful one. I encourage you to contact me with any questions,
comments, concerns, or just ideas of ways that I can make your child’s third grade
year a remarkable one. I strive for every student to feel comfortable, engaged,
and important in my classroom. I will keep you updated on your child’s
progress regularly, but feel free to contact me at any time to discuss this with
me. I am very honored to have your child in my class this year, and I am looking
forward to a year filled with fun, learning, and success stories!

Happy Monday!!
 
It's STAAR week!! These kids have put all of their time and effort into preparing for these tests, now it's time for them to shine!! Thank you for supporting your kiddos as they rock these tests. Remember, one test does not define a child's character. Please tell them that, too!
 
We do not have spelling this week. So, no homework and no test.
 
All library books are due by Friday. If your child has misplaced a library book, please pay for the book by Friday.
 
Friday is FIELD DAY!!!! Please send extra water and snacks with your kiddo, as well as an extra change of clothes and a towel. I see lots of water activities on the schedule! 3rd grade field day time is 1:00-3:10pm, so please apply sunscreen heavily in the morning before they leave home. Hats and sunglasses are ok to wear. Please wear your class shirt. I will, sadly, not be here on Friday. I have a cousin graduating from Baylor and another graduating from A&M (WHOOP!), so we will be driving all over Texas on Friday!
 
Please be on the lookout for end of year party info in the Wednesday folder. Mrs. Wilson, our amazing Room Mom, has some information that she wants to be sure you get!
 
Have a great week!

Hi Parents!
 
Thank you to all of you that were able to attend the Wax Museum last week! The students worked so hard and were so proud to show off their projects to you all!
 
This week in reading, we are really focusing on our test taking strategies. The STAAR test is just two weeks away, so getting the students to be consistent with proving where they are finding their answers in the text is key! In writing, we are putting the finishing touches on our research papers and getting those turned in for a major grade. In Social Studies, we are still learning about new inventors and inventions!
 
Spelling test this Friday. Spelling homework will be due, also. There is NO reading passage homework this week. 
 
Have a great week!

A Couple of Notes

Hi Parents!
 
A few things to share:
 
We are still missing pictures or picture money from about half of the class. Envelopes are coming home today with those students that have not turned in their money or returned their pictures yet.
 
Also, we are really starting to struggle with getting Wednesday folders signed and returned in a timely manner. We know it is the end of the year and you are all so so busy!! But, that folder is our main way of communicating to home, so please try to look at it and sign it on Wednesdays! 
 
A Note from P.E.:
 
Field Day is Friday, May 12th! Thank you very much for all the people who already committed to helping out at field day. Unfortunately, we do not have as many helpers as we need to have a successful day. If you can help, please e-mail Brenda Spedden at brendaspedden@tomballisd.net. We are needing help from 8:30am-11:15am and 12:30pm-3:15pm. Thank you.
 
Have a great day!

Happy April!!
 
All Wax Museum papers should be signed and returned by now. I also posted them here yesterday for future reference.
 
First progress reports of the 4th nine weeks will be submitted this Friday. Please remember that most subjects will only have one or two assignments so far, so be sure to check your child's grades online if you have any questions.
 
In class, we are working hard on our wax museum research. Be sure to check the sheets that were sent home about requirements for what parts should be completed outside of school. We are also reviewing our reading passage strategies. In Social Studies, we are focusing on timelines.

Hi Parents!
 
You may be hearing your students talking about the Wax Museum Research Project! We are in the final stages of choosing who we are researching. You will then receive all of the information that you will need to help your child with this project. Don't worry, most of the work will be done at school! Look for more information to come soon.
 
Report cards will be in tomorrow's Wednesday folder. Please sign and return those on Thursday.
 
We will still have a spelling test this Friday, as well as spelling homework AND a reading passage (A Different Kind of Woman) due. The students received those passages on Friday. 
 
Friday is field trip day! My entire morning class has turned in their forms and money. You guys rock! Please remember: P.E. appropriate shoes, 2 labeled water bottles, one labeled snack, one labeled lunch in a disposable bag, and apply sunscreen and bug spray before coming to school.
 
Have a great week!

Week of March 21, 2017

I hope you all had an amazing Spring Break with your families!! My family enjoyed every second together.
 
Run Wild at the Creek was AWESOME!! Thank you to everyone that volunteered or came out to cheer on the runners!
 
You will receive a field trip form this week. Only two room parents are allowed to go, but one of our Room Moms is unable to make it. If you are willing to chaperone and be our second parent, please let me know. We are going to TGR Exotics on Friday March, 31 from about 9-1:30. The cost would be $7 and you would have to either follow the bus or meet us there (it is in Spring). No siblings are allowed. I would need to know no later than 8:50 am Thursday morning. Please email or send a note with your child by then. I will then put all of the names in a hat and draw one out! That way the parent that is chosen has plenty of tine to prepare to attend.
 
Remember, we DO have spelling homework and test this week!
 
Have a great week!
