Student Council Representatives

Last week Miss Smith chose our class representatives for Student Council. This year's representatives for 3S will be Lauren Kraemer and Kyle Schubick. Miss Smith felt these were two responsible candidates that would represent our class well. Some of their duties this year will be to help run school store, make decisions on what days we do for Homecoming, organize a food drive for the Lord's Cupboard, and make any other important decisions for the school.

Landform Maps

Today in social studies we made landform maps out of homemade playdough. The kids had a lot of fun doing it and did a really great job! I'm proud of how well they worked to get them done quickly before the playdough dried out. The kids had to spread the playdough around inside an outline of the United States. Then they had to pinch the dough to form the two mountain ranges. Again the kids did a really great job!

First Bookorder

Your child will be bringing home their first book order today. You have until September 15th to decide if you would like to order. If you would like to order there are two ways to do so. First, you can fill out the order form and send it with a check written out to "Scholastic" to school with your child. Or you can order online. Instructions for ordering online are in the letter attached to the book orders. The class does receive a free $3 book for every online order.
