Hello third grade families,
Thank you to all the families who have met with me at conferences so far! If you haven't met with me yet and want to check/change your time, the sign up is here. Here are some announcements and upcoming events to be aware of as we move into November.
Sock Hop: The sock hop is tomorrow! If you would still like to pre-order, please have your child bring their order form with their money by tomorrow morning. Your child may wear their fun socks all day. If they have pre-ordered, I will release them straight to the Sock Hop after school. You can meet them in the gym. The dances will start with Kindergarten (and go up from there) after we all get settled in the gym and students have had time to dance in their socks! Please remind your child that we are dancing and not sliding all over the floor! Thanks!
Jogathon: Thank you to everyone for supporting our jog-a-thon this year! You are welcome to bring those forms and the money in after you collect it. They are due by November 9th. If you have pictures from the event to share, please share them in our Google Photos album.
Vikings: On Monday, we will start to study the Vikings in History. On November 21st, we are holding a Viking feast at 2:15pm. Students will be putting on a Viking play after the feast as well. All are welcome to join us! On Monday, you will receive a list of Viking dishes to sign up for and cook. Students are expected to help cook the dish at home. If this is too much work, please let me know and we can find an alternative for your family. I could also use more help setting up the feast, so if anyone is interested in helping that day, please let me know.
Field Trip chaperones: I have confirmed our field trip in April and would love volunteers to chaperone that trip as well. We will be going to Tualatin Riverkeepers with the 2nd grade class. This ties into our Core Knowledge unit on Rivers. If we have time, we will also volunteer at Scouter's Mountain with 2nd grade. We could also use more chaperones for our February field trip. The sign up is here.
