Welcome to Mrs. Hairston's 3rd Grade Class Page!!!

During this difficult time, my thoughts are definitely with our families and communities! I really miss seeing the students in school and I can't wait to meet each of you!

As we begin Virtual Instruction, you may also use this page as a resource at home. Remember that Canvas is our main Learning Platform.
We will use Zoom (provided on Canvas) for our Live Instruction. Your child will also be completing assignments on Canvas.
Here you will find: 
Virtual Learning Schedule: Our 3rd Grade Schedule
Useful Links: Instructional Websites-Educational Websites for extra practice in Reading, Math, Science, & S.S.
Virtual Learning Resources/Canvas Resources: Please use the folder labeled Virtual Learning (Fall 2020)/Canvas-Extra resources and Canvas tips to use at home

I look forward to seeing each of you as we begin this new virtual journey!


Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns! 
Thank you for your continued support!!!


HELLO!!! My name is Akrista Hairston and I am very excited about having your child this year! This is my fifth year teaching here at River Oaks Elementary School. I've also taught 5th grade and 2nd grade at River Oaks. Prior to teaching in this county, I've been a PALS Tutor for four years in Martinsville, VA.
I am from the very small town of Martinsville, Virginia and moved to Woodbridge in the summer of 2016. I graduated from Averett University with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education and a Master of Education Degree in Curriculum and Instruction. I enjoy spending time with my family, husband, and dog, Leo! I truly believe that all students are capable of learning! I am really looking forward to sharing their many successes with you!
