Let's Sing, America!

May 20, 2013
Dear Third Grade Families,
        We are so excited about our upcoming play! The children are working hard to prepare for our performance on May 28th.  Below, you will find the requirements for this year’s play attire.  We have tried to keep it fun by allowing each child to create their own unique “costume.”  We also hope that you will not have to go out and purchase anything new.

 Every child will wear jean bottoms (skirt, shorts, or jeans), a plain red or white shirt, and tennis shoes. (No graphics or logos on shirts please.)

     Here is the fun part! The other items of the costume (socks, belts, hair accessories, etc…) are up to your child, but must follow the guidelines below: 
·        Each item must be red, white, or blue (or any combination of those colors.)
·        No other colors may be worn!
·        Only “American” themed graphics like stars and stripes please!

The students will need to wear their costumes to school on May 28th for our dress rehearsal.  Please send them with a bag of extra clothes that they can change into after the performance.  They will wear the same costume again that evening for the 6:00 P.M. performance. 
                                                                          Thank You!
                                                                                      The 5 Star Bakery

Star Spangled Banner

This year, our class is participating in a musical called Let's Sing, America! One of the songs that our class will perform is the Star Spangled Banner. A few students have been chosen to learn how to sign this song in ASL. We are looking forward to seeing this beautiful performance! You can learn too. Check out these videos.  Part One    Part Two

Teacher Appreciation Week- Thank You!

Words can't possibly describe how incredibly lucky we have felt this week to have such a thoughtful, sweet and creative parent support system. Every day this week, we have been showered with sweet gifts including chocolate covered strawberries, lottery tickets, framed "love" notes, coffee gift cards, a pencil bouquet, delicious cupcakes, and lunch (twice!). Our fabulous room moms even covered our lunch duty, twice!  Thank you so much for taking care of us this week. Simply put, we have the very best class and room moms in the world! Check out these pictures to see for yourself how incredibly creative and cute our gifts were. 

Love, Miss Russell, Mrs. Shall, Mrs. Felter, Mrs. O'Leary, Mrs. Rossignol and Miss Simms
