LUlrich

Welcome to Mrs. Ulrich’s 3rd grade class!
I am so glad that you visited our class page!  
 

 

My name is Mrs. Laurel Ulrich, and I am excited to join the Signal Hill 3rd grade team!  This will be my 19th year teaching, and, prior to coming to Signal Hill,  I taught 5th grade for three years at Porter Traditional School in Woodbridge, VA.  Prior to Porter, I taught at Cougar Elementary School in Manassas Park, VA for fourteen years.  I’m looking forward to teaching 3rd grade, and have previously taught Kindergarten, first grade, and, most recently, 5th grade.   

 

I live in Manassas with my husband, son, daughter, and two Boxer puppies.  When I’m not at school, I am usually watching my son and daughter, either at swimming, baseball, or softball.  I am also a HUGE baseball fan, and so I love to attend Nats, Orioles, PNats, and especially Red Sox games.  I love all things green, reading books, and photography.   

 

Please feel free to contact me anytime via email at ulrichlc@pwcs.edu or by phone at 703-530-7541.

Students and families, please CLICK on the Files and Documents section of this webpage to find a PDF file that lists all Signal Hill library books that are now considered "overdue."  Of course, the books will not be expected back to school until the students return, however I thought it may be helpful for you all, as a reference, to be able to view the titles that are checked out in your child's name. I receive this PDF report weekly via email, so I will be updating the Files and Documents section of my webpage EACH THURSDAY with the updated list.  Thank you for checking the list!                  Mrs. L. Ulrich, Ms. Stavros, and Mrs. Raiti

Padlet Activity


1/20/19 Habit 1 : Be Proactive
This past week, I introduced the class to the 7 Habits of Happy Children, which are based on the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by author Sean Covey.  These habits will help all students to focus on simple things they each can practice to focus on their learning and take ownership of their success!  The first habit is to Be Proactive, and the way I introduced it (from my baseball perspective) is that, when one is playing baseball, a great way to be proactive is to swing the bat.  No one can win a baseball game without scoring runs, and you'll never hit the ball without swinging the bat!  This habit also illustrates a poster in our classroom to which I refer often ... "It's okay not to KNOW, but it's not okay to NOT TRY."  So, basically, I will be looking for students to put forth their best effort at all times to show this habit.  

For another way to view this habit, please refer to this document that explains it in a simple way. Mrs. U
