Today the children of the Kennedy School participated in a walk-a-thon. We walked to Nathan Tufts Park, known locally as Powder House Park. We enjoyed a healthy snack, provided by Whole Foods Market. Students also tracked their steps with a pedometer.
The students had a wonderful day and they enjoyed seeing some of the local monuments and streets they have been learning about during the Somerville History unit of study.
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!
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!
If you have volunteered to chaperone, please check your child’s yellow homework folder for information about chaperoning our upcoming field trips. All chaperones must have a CORI (Criminal Offender Record Information) form on file from this year. The form can be downloaded here. Please click on “CORI Request Form”. Along with the completed form you must include a copy of U.S. government issued photographic ID, such as a driver’s license or a U.S. passport. You can return the information in your child’s yellow homework folder or to the John F. Kennedy School main office. Thank you!
