Coast Guard Visit
Wow! What a day we had when the United States Coast Guard paid us a visit! We have to thank Commander Dooris, parent of one of our 5th graders, who made this all possible. The students were able to watch the Dolphin helicopter land and take off from our playground. In between, kids toured the helicopter, and had presentations on water safety and the history of the Coast Guard. This is surely going to be one of those days students will always remember.
Thanks to our wonderful Leonard families, our school raised over $18,000 dollars for the Leonard PTO. This money helps pay for many activities we have during the year, such as our buses for field trips, including Greenfield Village in June which costs over $1000 each year. The kids had a blast running and it was so nice to see so many parents cheering on our Leonard Fun Run runners!
We Are Worm Farmers in Room 14!
To make the world a better place, we are learning about composting! Miss Miranda from the Stage nature center visited all three third graders to teach us how worms are a vital part of creating soil for farming. Each class has a worm farm! After only one week, we could see that the worms are eating, and compost is being created!
Student Council Elections
I was so proud of our boys and girls who made posters and gave speeches to be our class representatives. This was an election that truly had no losers; everyone who ran was a winner just for trying! This year Aiden and Tanvi will be representing our class at morning Council Meetings. Below are some pictures of our candidates with their posters.
Relatives Came Read Along
Thank you so much to all of our relatives who came for our surprise event. It was a great day to enjoy a few good book and a few good treats with family and friends.
We work hard and play hard in third grade! Below are a few recess pictures from our first week.
Making our Ocean Bulletin Board
Students designed and built the amazing oceanscape bulletin board for our hallway. The students worked in teams to make their ideas come to life in our hallway.
Our first days of school!
We were in high gear during our first week! Check out the pictures and video below to see what we've been up to.
Our first day of school is August 27!
I'm so excited we will be spending the 2019-2020 school year together! This is going to be an exciting year! I'm looking forward to meeting you on Wednesday at the Meet and Greet. I do need to leave at 4:45 Wednesday so I can make it to a American Cancer fundraiser I'm volunteering at, so if you can make it before then, I would love to see you!
Smiles, Mrs. Connell
