3rd Grade News

Our SS standards say that 3rd graders have to be able to explain how individuals make the community a better place by solving problems that promote the common good; and an ongoing standard is the understanding and examples of positive and negative incentives that affect people’s choices and behaviors.
There’s a lesson that coincides with the standard in our SS books with a car full of positive bumper stickers, so we had the kids brainstorm bumper stickers that send the message of making our community a better place. We will continue the ongoing principles by doing our community service projects such as Warm-up Winter (collecting gloves, hats, scarves, and mittens), sending holiday cards to the nursing home, Ronald McDonald House pop tab collection, Operation Christmas Child, and the donation of our mini-mall money to a local charity.


Welcome Soldier…Surprise Mom!!!



Army Specialist Ben Harris wanted to give his mom a special surprise. Recently home from Afghanistan, he drove more than 20 hours from his base in Texas to surprise his mom at Scioto Darby Elementary. During a school assembly to learn about compassion, he came from behind the stage for a huge hug. Some of our friends in the media were able to document the special event.
