Our Week in Review

We had another incredible week in 3rd grade. Students not only reached their penny collection goal, but they exceeded their goal with a grand total of 1,306 pennies. We will use our money to purchase peanut butter and jelly for the local charity. The students also enjoyed a spirit filled Homecoming Week, Kona Ice, and our very first visit to the STEAM Lab! I am looking so forward to all the rest of the memories we will create this year.
