THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
I am so overwhelmed by everyone's kindness and generosity. It was a such a wonderful surprise to be given book after book from the Students of Room 205. There are no words that I can begin to express how the students filled my heart with such happiness. The way that they worked together in order to surprise me, to buy books for not only our class but for future classes, and to give so much on their own was one of the happiest moments I have had teaching. I remember telling some of you in first grade, "In a world where you can be anything, be kind." You have all chosen kindness and it filled my heart with such happiness. (And of course made me cry!) Always continue to live up to those words. I will always remember what you all accomplished together and how a room full of third graders touched my heart. I am so proud & grateful to be your teacher! I wish all of you a very Happy Holiday Season!
Thursday, December 21 is our Holiday Concert. The concert will begin at 9:00 in the cafeteria. All parents are invited to attend. Mrs. Agati has asked the students to get dressed for this event (please no sweatpants or sweatshirts) We will still have recess so students may wish to bring in a change of clothes for after the concert.
On Wednesday, December 20th, we are going to create a math, winter project with marshmallows. Please send in two bags of marshmallows with your child by December 19th.
Please also bring in a small stuffed animal for an engineering activity that we will also be doing
on that day. Thank you!

We had the opportunity to share our published writing. We read Fortunately by Remy Charlip and then every student had to create their own version of the story. We all finished publishing them and shared them with our classmates. They were very creative! All of our writing projects will stay in school and will be shared with you at the end of the year. Until then you can always look for the draft version to be sent home, access your child's Google Drive to look at work we've typed, or ask your child what their stories are about.
The Turkey Trot was a big success! Everyone loved participating or cheering on their friends. Congratulations to the 3rd Grade winners & all the winners! Everyone did an amazing job.

Everyone at Pine Glen enjoyed our whole school assembly today. The Boston Bruins strength and conditioning coach, John Whitesides, along with the Bruins promotional team and mascot Blades came to show us all about how important it is to stay healthy and fit. Everyone got an awesome paracord bracelet and folder from the Bruins. Thank you to the Pine Glen PTO for organizing this fun event for all of us!

The haunted houses designed by this class were creative, well designed, and very impressive. The poems that went along with them continued to show everyone's creativity and attention to details. We had a chance to look at everyone's and then share our poem with our table. The haunted houses were displayed for all to see at the Pine Glen Halloween Dance. Everyone did a great job on this assignment!
Room 205's Haunted Houses! They were spooktacular!

Your child should have brought home their first weekly writing assignment. This assignment is meant to be broken down so that they are working on it over the course of the week. They should be sure they are revising to add great details and vibrant words. You can work together to edit it before writing their final draft. If you have any questions about this homework component please feel free to contact me.

We had a beautiful day touring our town, Burlington. The Burlington Historical Commission did a wonderful job educating us on the history of our town. We got to tour the Old Burying Ground, Burlington Museum, and Grand View Farm before enjoying lunch outside at Simond's Park. Then we got to visit the one room school house - The West School before heading back to Pine Glen. Thank you to Mr. Naddaff and Mrs. Arsenault for chaperoning on this trip. Everyone did a great job listening and staying safe! Be sure to ask your child about what they learned today.
