3B Weekly Note

Dear 3B Families,

It was wonderful to have so many of you join us for Back-to-School Night on Wednesday! We hope you found the evening informative and enjoyable. It was such a pleasure to connect with you and to give you a window into your child’s daily life in the classroom. If you were not able to attend we will send home some handouts with your child.

We had a busy week after the long weekend! Due to the rainy day, we stayed at school instead of going to the Schuylkill Center this week. We built in plenty of time for Sustained Silent Reading (SSR) which is a favorite activity of many children. 

The highlights of our week, however, were the speeches students made to run for Student Council class representative. We had a total of 15 brave children who shared sincere and articulate speeches. Once each candidate gave his or her speech, students cast their top two votes. The results revealed that each candidate got multiple votes and it certainly was a close call. Please join us in congratulating Mira Khurana as our 3B student council representative!
