Dear Third Grader,
Hello, my name is Mr. Olene and I will be your third-grade teacher. I graduated from St. Cloud State and then received my Master’s from St. Mary’s University.
I’m sure you will have a lot to share about your summer. I hope you are enjoying the warm weather with your family and friends. I have been spending many hours outside. I live in Shakopee with my wife Lee and two sons Gavin and Bennett. I also have a stepdaughter who is attending the University of Minnesota. I enjoy playing golf, tennis, and basketball. We also did a lot of camping. I am also busy coaching my boys in the summer and during the school year. I coach the freshmen boys’ basketball team here in Shakopee during the winter.
Third grade is going to be fun, especially if you like: animals, stars and planets, multiplication, division, cursive, reading fun books, computers, going on field trips, and so much more!
