What's happening in third grade?
PTA Fundraiser: This year our school is teaming up with Raise Craze - a kindness based fundraiser! During this fundraiser, students ask friends and family for donations via their own online Raise Craze platform while paying it forward serving others. What a great way for us to teach our students the importance of kindness and gratitude while raising much needed funds. Students will spend time serving, not selling! We kick-off on Tuesday the 1st of November and it will run through Tuesday the 15th. Our school goal is to raise $40,000 for new tables and rugs in the common areas and to refresh all of our STEM equipment! In addition, PTA assists the school with field trip fees, pays for educational assemblies, supports purchases of literacy materials, and more. PTA has not held a fundraiser in a few years, and we need the support of our community. Here is the link for more information and how to register.
Math Superstars Program: Challenge your child to show off their math skills as a Math Superstar! Participants who complete all 20 worksheets will receive a prize packet! This program is supported and run by PTA volunteers. Please visit https://england-pta.memberhub.com/w/programs for more information.

Counselor Corner for Parents: This program teaches students the skills they need to reach out and include those that may be dealing with social isolation, and creates a culture of inclusion and connectedness within our school and community.
