Third graders have been very busy this month and have had some very special opportunities. We hope you all had a chance to look at your child’s portfolio and can see the great growth they are making.
There have been some great guest teachers this month as well. Dr. DeTolla made a visit to talk about dental health.
For several years he has taken a day in February to visit students and share his message. Each student also received a goodie bag containing things to help them take care of their teeth.
Mr. Robinson, from Prescott Farm, also came to our classrooms as part of the grant from the Geralynn Anne Fountain Foundation. His topic was animals in winter. He shared information about their habitat and how to track them according to their track patterns. Students will be taking a trip to Prescott Farm this week to go out on snowshoes and practice what they learned with the support of Mr. Robinson. They are very excited about this field trip and will be working on a special project to share what they learned and to thank the foundation for their support. Mrs. Leberman will make her second visit right before vacation to help students work on their Junior Forest Ranger badges! She will discuss hiking safely. Each child will complete another page in their booklet. Be sure to ask them about what you should do before going on any hike. Have a wonderful vacation! March will be here before we know it!
