Students are finishing typing their reports today. They also are recording their reports by using an app called Do Ink. We will be watching our videos as a class on Friday! I will send you the link to those later this week once they have all been completed. This week they will be creating their country's flag!


Here is the schedule for Thursday:

Students will have time after lunch to change into their county clothes, so they do not need to wear them to school. (But they can if it's easy to wear all day).


1:00-2:30 Taste Fest in the 3rd grade pod (make sure your child's food is here at school by 12:30 so that the volunteers can make sure to have everything in its proper place, ready to be served). Food CAN be dropped off in the morning with your child.


2:30-2:45-- clean up taste fest, students get ready for their music performance


2:45-3:30 3rd Grade Music Performance in the gym


Evening--students will perform again for families and parents at 7:00. Students need to be in the music room by 6:40.


We are looking forward to a fun day! The students have worked so hard and are ready to celebrate!
