Thank you so much for supporting our bake sale for the Fairdale tornado victims!!!! Our totals are in and.....WOW!!!! We raised $550.87 at our bake sale!!! A huge thank you also goes out to Ann Tracey and Walmart in Galena for partnering with us. They also held a fundraiser and are adding $220.00 to our proceeds, which brings us to a grand total of $770.87 to be sent to tornado victims in the form of gift cards from Walmart, Target, and Kohl's. Amazing job, third graders! We are so proud of you!!!

After reading about the Statue of Liberty in language arts, the third graders have been researching it and other American symbols in social studies. Working with partners, the third graders have researched Mt. Rushmore, the Star Spangled Banner, the Pledge of Allegiance, the White House, Ellis Island, the American flag, the Washington Monument, the bald eagle, and of course, the Statue of Liberty. Then they created posters showcasing their research. On Friday afternoon, we held a Gallery Walk with Mrs. Reese's class so that all of the students could share and explore all of these important symbols.

Today we visited the FFA Petting Zoo! We attended 2 education stations and learned about soybeans, corn, oats, wheat, and different kinds of plants. We also got to spend some time with horses, cows and calves, goats, pigs, a peacock, bunnies, ducks and ducklings, a goose, sheep and lambs, chickens and chicks. Then, the best part, ice cream!!! Thanks to the FFA for this fun experience!
Way back last fall the third grade classes brought in more canned goods for the Servant Leadership Drive than any other class. Our reward was an extra recess. Well...we've waited all winter for a nice day, and finally we got it! Here we are getting ready to play kickball with Mrs. Reese's class.
