Sign Up To Help At Spring Field Day!

Sharing Time

Students will have the opportunity to bring in an item to share again! It went SO well the last time we tried it. Students were very responsible with their items, and it was fun to learn about each other in a different way.

NEXT WEEK, on their regular sharing day, students may BRING something to share. Please help your third grader pick out something appropriate. I will keep the items safe in the classroom during the day. Please refrain from sending anything perishable, living, or extremely valuable. Let me know if you have any questions about this.
