The third graders have been immersed in learning all about local government! Students researched and reported on the various services the local government provides, and engaged in a design thinking challenge to help solve the city of Bend’s parking problems. We had a local law enforcement visitor, Officer Krauger, speak to the class on Wednesday, and on Friday, we visited Bend City Hall. My hope is that each child will understand the important role our government plays in keeping the community safe and productive, as well as the role each citizen plays in making our community a better place.
We have been keeping it moving in 3rd grade PE! The year started with a review of basic PE procedures and we quickly progressed to skill development and playing games. The kids have been working hard on their basketball skills in our current unit.
