Welcome Letter

Welcome students and parents,


My name is Ms. Sink and I am your third-grade teacher.  I will also be teaching 4th and 5th grade Social Studies.  This is my fifth year teaching at Southwest Prep.  Before coming to Southwest Prep, I was a special education assistant for many years.  Teaching has always been my passion, and I love coming up with fun new ways to learn!

I know this year will be an adjustment for a lot of students getting back to the school routine again.  I promise to do my best to make it an easy adjustment.  My room features a relaxation area for any time you are feeling overwhelmed and need a few minutes to collect yourself.  I hope that will help ease the transition.  I believe that a classroom is a family and we look out for one another.

This school year we will learn a lot in ELAR, Math, Science, and Social Studies.  We also will learn a lot socially.  We will be preparing to take our first STAAR test, but preparing can be fun!  While learning things in all subjects we will be experimenting, using edible math, and playing learning games such as Academic Baseball, Around the World, and more!

If you ever have any questions, please send me an email.  I try to respond to all school day emails within 24 hours, and any emails after hours within 48 hours.  I also will be using Class Dojo to communicate.  Please subscribe to my page to receive any updates to it.

Let’s make this a great year!

Ms. Sink
