Pizza and bowling.

Today our third grade classes went on a special field trip to Flatbread Company for pizza and bowling.  Everyone bowled for an hour and then we were able to eat a generous amount of cheese pizza.  Flatbread Company in Davis Square is a great place for kids!



Classroom fun day.

Our class reached our on-task behavior goal and we voted on a classroom fun day.  Today was fun day!  It was an amazing day and everyone had a blast.  Everyone (well, almost everyone) wore pajamas to school.  We started by reading with our stuffed animals and pillow pets and then Mrs. Tremonte read from Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH by Robert C. O’Brien.  After that, we played educational games, such as Sumdog in the computer lab.  We enjoyed a snack and had a special morning recess where we attached our flags for Heritage Day on the front playground.  We learned new things about our classmates from “Show and Tell” and we had game stations where we played, Battleship, Apples to Apples, Twister, and Sorry.  After trying new foods at the Heritage Day Friday Festival, we relaxed and worked on our “Third Grade Memory Books”.  The day culminated with popsicles, dancing, and of course smiles and laughs.  Have a happy and safe weekend!

City hall field trip.

Today our third graders walked from the Kennedy School to Somerville City Hall.  Mayor Curtatone greeted everyone in the Aldermanic Chambers, located at 93 Highland Avenue.  Mayor Curtatone shared information about the City of Somerville and he answered questions ranging from the Pilgrims to Outback Steakhouse.  The students were able to explore the Aldermanic Chambers, trying out the comfortable swivel chairs and posing for pictures.  After that, there was a trivia session in the Mayor’s office where one of the students from our class won a hat!  Students then enjoyed whoopie pies, chocolate chip cookies, and popsicles.  After the sugar rush, our class posed for some silly pictures and then we walked back to school.  It was a wonderful field trip and everyone enjoyed the day.  Thank you to Mayor Curtatone and everyone at City Hall for hosting us!
