Welcome!

Welcome to our classroom Smore page! Here you will see what we did in class this week, we we have planned for next week, and some other important tidbits!

Great Week!

What a fabulous week we had here in third grade! I enjoyed my time with your children! The Evergreen Farmer's Market was a highlight for the kids. They sold out of their fruit infused water in about 1 hour. Our classroom made a nice profit of 73.00, thanks to the donations of the jars and fruit from the Ennis Family. Our classroom mom volunteers were the BEST! Braving the scorching heat for a few hours and being great sales mentors for the kids! After the market closed up, we had a sales and marketing debrief meeting, it was productive. Ask your kids about some of the ideas they came up with for next year's market.
