Welcome to Third Grade!

My name is Marae Rigby and I am so excited that you are a part of our Madison Station family!  There is so much for us to learn in third grade! 

All About Me

This is my 22nd year to teach - all of them have been at Madison Station!  I taught 4th grade for ten years and 2nd grade for one year.  This is my seventh year to teach 3rd grade and I just love it!.  I have two grown children who are both graduates of Madison County schools and of Mississippi State University.  My husband, Jim, and I have lived in Madison for, well, since it was a small town - 32 years!  I look forward to an exciting and successful year with you and your children!
 A large part of our third grade curriculum requires that students are FLUENT in multiplication and division facts. Please practice these facts at home with your child! They will be using this knowledge from now on in their education and knowing them fluently will help them immensely! We will be spending a lot of time on fractions this year too. Cursive writing is a big, fun thing that we will learn this year! The children are always so excited to learn this new form of writing and I hope that you'll encourage practice 
I feel so blessed to be a part of your child's third grade year and I'm looking forward to getting to know them and you!  It's going to be a fun-filled year full of new learning experiences!
