Third Grade Wax Museum

Our Wax Museum is Thursday, March 24 from 6:00-7:00 pm. Please have your child at school by 5:45. Our class has been working very hard to prepare for this special program! On Wednesday, March 23 our first grade buddies will be visiting our class for a rehearsal/practice round and costumes are optional on this day but recommended. Please make sure that your child has their costume and prop(s) on Thursday morning because we will be presenting to the second grade classes.


We worked on finalizing speeches this week and your child has a hard copy of their speech & notecards to practice with at home. Please make sure that these are returned to school each day.


I am so excited for our class to showcase their hard work next week! Please let me know if you have any questions.

Visiting Author

On Tuesday, March 22, Indiana author Cyndy Seitz will be visiting our school and signing books! An order form was sent home this week. If you are interested in purchasing one of Cyndy's books for her to sign, please return the form and money by Tuesday.
