General Information

Mrs. Herholtz 3rd Grade

I could not be more excited to be a part of the Gold Camp staff and the 3rd Grade team!  I feel third grade is one of the best grades to teach.  The students are excited and inquisitive!  I am thrilled for the new year.


To reach me at school, call 327-2820 x 18. If you reach my voicemail, please leave me a message. 


**Sending me an email will be the best way to get in touch with me.  You can send me an email by clicking the small envelope next to my name below.   Please be aware that most days, I only check email before/after school and during breaks.  If it is something urgent, please call the front office.

Missing Assignments

If a student forgets their homework or forgets to do it, they may turn it in the following day; but they will not get full credit.

If a student misses school, they will have two days for every day absent, starting the day after their return, to make up the work. A student will lose points for every day an assignment is late following the allotted time.

Report Cards

A report card is not a judgment of your child's worth as an individual. It does not measure the delight he or she gives, the humor in those young eyes, or the hope for tomorrow. It measures only one aspect of a young life with so much untried potential. After only a few years of life we cannot judge their lives to be successes nor failures at anything. Please look at your child's report card with love and acceptance of how things are right now. Give it only the importance of the moment - notice and point out the good and positive, emphasize what your child is doing right and build on that to improve what needs improving. Young developing egos are fragile - handle with care and nourish all that your child is and can be.


Report Card Grade Scale


90%-100%=       4  Excellent

80%-89%=         3  Good

70%-79%=         2  Progressing

69% and below= 1  Improvement Needed



4(E) = Excellent:  The student works independently and shows a consistent  display of  strength in this area.

3(G) =Good:  The student works independently and is making appropriate gains.

2(P) = Progressing: The student is doing what is expected and is making gains but is not fully independent in this area.

1(I) =Improvement Needed:  There is a significant discrepancy between the student’s work or actions and what is expected.

  / = not evaluated


Morning Snack

Snacks:  This is an important item in third grade because students arrive at school before 8 am and they don't eat lunch until 11:40.  Kids get very hungry when they are working hard!  We will usually have snack at about 9:35 each morning.  If it is easier, you might consider putting a week's worth of snacks in the backpack... say, five granola bars... That way if your child normally has hot lunch, it only has to be addressed once a week.
