For the first time ever, we are going to have audience participation for our final song this year! The students are very excited to share this experience with you, however, in order to be ready to join in on the fun, we are asking families to download this free jingle bell playing app PRIOR to the holiday program on their phones if you will be attending the 3rd-5th grade performance. THANKS!!
iJingle Bells (John Slater) is available on iPhone
Christmas Jingle Bells (Bytza Entertainmet) is available for Android
All aboard the 3rd grade Polar Express! Our party will be from 9:15-10:30 on Wednesday, December 21st. If you are interested in helping run a center on the day of the party, or are willing to donate items, please click on the Polar Express picture below (for the Signup Genius link, enter your email, and click next). We will be decorating cookies and drinking hot chocolate at the Christmas party. We are planning crafts, games, and snacks related to the Polar Express theme and will be combining all of the 3rd grade classes.
Also for a gift exchange, we would like each child to bring in a small item for each child in their class. Some ideas might pencils, treats, erasers, or small party items from the store. We would also like each child to bring in a box wrapped in Christmas wrapping paper. The box needs to be opened without unwrapping it (so either wrap the lid separately or choose a box with flaps that can open and close). The kids will be putting the items they brought to share in each other’s boxes. The children may start bringing them in as soon as you would like to send them. Make sure your child’s box is here by Monday, December 19th.
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.
We had a very busy day celebrating Halloween. Have fun viewing the very scary bunch in the video below. So sorry I didn’t get many pictures. We were having so much fun that I couldn’t take many pictures. Thank you for your donations. The party was a big hit!
Matt Kirkwood from TV8 came to Georgetown today to teach the3rd graders about weather. The kids were full of questions and wonder. They even got Matt to reveal his childhood secret of being terrified of thunderstorms. Enjoy the pictures from today’s presentation.
Another successful walkathon! Thank you for your support making Georgetown a great place to learn.
What a great start to a new school year. I am loving my new third graders. I am so lucky to be their teacher.
Please take the time to read your third grader’s Third Grade Handbook. There is a form at the end for you and your child to sign indicating that you have read the handbook together. If you do not have a printer, please just email me to let me know that you have read the handbook. Thank you. I look forward to a wonderful year working together with you and your children.
