It’s All Greek to Me!
By Zach Hargraves
I have learned a lot at the new school, Rees, but my favorite was the Greeks Olympics. The Olympics was our final celebration that we did on our unit about Ancient Greece. This included reading Percy Jackson, visiting with the Oracle of Delphi, and even reading articles about Greek philosophy and clothing.
The first event that we did was the PTA’s Fun Run. But there are a lot more olympics that we did.
These third graders have something to brag about! Seventeen students received their first math brag tag for completing 45 of the 60 multiplication problems in three minutes. Three of those earned an additional brag tag for getting all 60 correct! Additionally, each class had three recipients earn a student recognition award. These are for the student of the month from each class and those who have been demonstrating S.O.A.R. qualities throughout October. Congrats to these awesome students!
