Polar Express

Dear Families,

I would like to thank everyone who made our Polar Express party such a great success. From the beginning of our day with caroling, throughout our Polar Express party, and then later during yoga and time spent with friends, we had a GREAT day. It is so gratifying for me to be able to enjoy these relaxed days with your children and see them interact with each other with such kindness and friendship. 

I also would like to thank you for your generosity in showering me with gifts. I am so fortunate to work in such a caring and supportive community. 

I wish you all a very restful and happy holiday season. Enjoy creating memories with those precious children of yours. I will miss them and look forward to beginning the next decade with them.

I’ve put together a little slideshow for you to get a little glimpse of our time together. Enjoy!

Polar Express Party!

Good Morning Parents,

We have been hard at work as a Third Grade Team getting all the details set for the big Polar Express Party! As a reminder, the party will be next Thursday, December 19th from 9-10:30 am.

Each classroom teacher will be able to have ten parent volunteers (40 total volunteers for the grade). We will be prioritizing parents who were not able to be a part of the Halloween party or class field trip; if we have fewer than ten interested parents who were NOT a part of either of those events, we will do a “lottery” like drawing for the remaining parents interested. Unfortunately due to how large this event is in a small space, we will not be able to have any parents except those who have been confirmed by the teacher as volunteers come to the party. Thank you for your understanding in this!

Please note that parent volunteers will need:

1) To have a background check filled out

2) To be to school by 8:30 am the day of the party

3) To have alternate plans for younger siblings (because there are already 100 students and 44 adults all in one space!)

Please email about interest in volunteering by the end of the school day this Friday, December 13th. Please also consider helping out by signing up to donate party supplies on the Sign Up Genius here, as well. This can also be found on the blog.

Thanks so much – we are looking forward to next Thursday!

~The Third Grade Team
