Third Grade News
Week of September 14th
Butterfly Release - THIS Friday 9/18, we will be releasing our butterflies which will be very bittersweet. We will meet at the school garden (where the benches are) at 1:30 PM. We are releasing our butterflies "in honor" of someone special in our lives, whether they have passed away or still living. Students will be read a poem they wrote about that person then release the butterfly to begin it's long journey to Mexico. We will enjoy some "butterfly themed" refreshments after. All families are invited to come!
Ag Day - Last Friday, we had an awesome time at Ag Day! We received many compliments from the high school student presenters on how well behaved our class was! I am proud of how well the students represented CCA!
