     Welcome to 3rd Grade Discovery!

My name is Mrs. Catherine Haws and I am so thrilled to be your third-grade teacher! I have lived in Maple Valley for many years with my husband and five children, all Tahoma graduates. My hobbies include gardening, reading, quilting, and family! I am looking forward to getting to know you better. This past year we also added a puppy to our family and she has been crazy, fun.

Third grade is such an exciting year, you are moving from primary grades to secondary. We will build upon, what you have learned through all your hard work in second grade math, reading, writing, social studies and science. Our work will include both third and fourth grade math, third-grade reading and writing with a higher level of books available for student choice, and third grade science which I will provide extended projects and learning opportunities for highly capable students. 

I am looking forward to welcoming students and families for a short supply drop off and meet your teacher on August 25th from 5:00-6:00! Please be sure to:

  • Enter through either the bus door or the gate closest to the portables- look for signs! There will be a map to help guide you to your child(s) teacher.
  • Bring your ID so you can receive your family placard for pickup purposes. A survey was sent out to help the office staff collect data for how your child(ren) will be getting home each and every day.  Please take a moment and fill out the surveys, it helps everyone to ensure the safety of our students. 
  • You are welcome to bring school supplies and arrange them in your desk.  Note- the playground will be closed.


You are more than welcome to send supplies on the first day of school as well. We appreciate your flexibility and partnership. 

Welcome Back, Wildcats!
