3rd Grade General News!


  • There are only 3 days until the GES Auction items are due on THURSDAY OCTOBER 5TH and we need your help! We are asking each family to contribute something for our themed baskets to make this the most successful auction yet! Collection boxes are now in your child's classroom. Just send them to school with their items to be placed in the box. (Please note, donations of wine/beer cannot be dropped off at the school. Please contact your coordinator to arrange for pick up).
  • Ways to contribute: *Ask a local business for a donation (or send us the name and contact information of someone you have in mind and we are happy to do it!), *Purchase item(s) from the basket list, or *Make a Cash or Gift Card donation
  • As a reminder the 3rd Grade Basket Themes are: Family Game Night, Date Night, Ice Cream You Scream, Giddy Up, Green Thumb, and Tailgate Party!
  • There are still plenty of open spots to sign up on this link: Auction Sign Up
  • The grade with the most successful baskets at auction will win a Pajama Day from Mrs. Hilcher! Let's help our kiddos win the competition! If you have any questions, please contact our Auction Coordinator:

Field Trip Volunteers!

  • Our 3rd grade field trip has been planned! Please be on the look out for more information to come as December approaches. Information regarding volunteers and chaperones will be sent out as well. Please remember all classroom and field trip volunteers must read the Volunteer Handbook and complete the online background check form: Volunteer Background Check. This must be completed annually. Please make sure you have completed both of these for the school year 2017-2018. Feel free to reach out to your homeroom teacher with any questions regarding volunteering!
