Welcome to
Ms. LaRusso's Third Grade Class

Mrs. Laing is now on maternity leave as of February 21, 2020 through the remainder of the school year. In her absence I will be your child’s new 3rd grade teacher! I wanted to take this opportunity to introduce myself. My name is Ms. LaRusso, and I’m super excited to be joining the 3rd grade team at Rockaway Valley Elementary!  I am thrilled for the opportunity to work with and get to know your child in order to create engaging lessons that will make them excited to come back to school each and every day!

Our class motto is Be Kind.  Work Hard.
No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.  – Aesop
