I can't believe we are already finished with our Rome Core Knowledge unit! Time is flying by. On Wednesday, we will begin our next unit: Human Body (skeletal and muscular systems). We will study more of the body systems this year, but these are the first two. We had a wonderful time on our field trip day at OMSI going to the Pompeii exhibit, then participating in gladiator games at school.
Pictures: I have put together a Google Photos album which is a collaborative album with everyone who has the link. Please keep this link private to only CHPCS families in our grade. When you log on, you can add your own photos. These are also shared with Mrs. Marlatt for the yearbook. Please check this out and also add your own photos from the field trip, Mad Tea Party, and so on as the year goes on. Thank you!
Harvest Festival: Our 11th Annual Harvest Festival is this week on Thursday from 6:00-7:00. Come celebrate the turning of the season with music, games, and a baking contest! We have the gym as an option in case of rain. We would also love volunteers to help run some more booths! If you are interested, you may contact me or Mrs. Adams for more details.
Book Fair: Our fall book fair runs this week every morning (M-Th) from 7:45am-9:00am, and 2:30-4:30pm. It will also be open during the Harvest Festival this Thursday from 6-7pm.
MAP Testing: Third graders will be MAP testing this Wednesday, October 11th with the new Chromebooks in our classroom. We will not have Riggs or Math homework that night because we are testing all day.
Jogathon: Please continue to get pledges for Jogathon! Our Jogathon is on Thursday, October 26th. If you need a new Jogathon form, ask me or the office for a new one! Thanks!
