Mrs. Lori Trekas » Welcome to Year 3 Language and Literature!

Welcome to Year 3 Language and Literature!

My name is Mrs. Trekas, and I would like to extend a warm welcome to both new and returning students and their families. I am excited about the new school year, even though it will be DIFFERENT! I can't wait to see some familiar faces and meet some new ones!

I believe that teaching is a tremendous responsibility, and I will do my best to ensure that each student has a safe and motivating learning experience.  However, I can not do this without the help of you and your parents. We are partners in the learning process.

Communication between parents, teachers, and students is essential for success in school. If you ever have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to email me:


Check out the Class Information Link Below!

PHONE: Phone calls can be scheduled during office hours from 7:45-2:45 daily. Send an email or a text through Remind to make an appointment.
