Grade 3 Market Day

The students in Grade 3 will have their annual Market Day next Friday, March 13th. The Market Day is part of the Grade 3 unit of inquiry How We Organize Ourselves, during which they have been learning that economic activity relies on a system of exchange and consumption of goods and services. Each Grade 3 student wrote a business plan for a product or service to sell during Market Day.

For Market Day on March 13th, students should bring in small notes and coins to purchase the products and services (such as sweets, games, and other fun items) from the Grade 3 entrepreneurs. The price range for the goods and services will be 20 rubles to 500 rubles.

No Ice Skating during PE for now

Please read the important message below from the PE teachers regarding ice skating:

There is no ice skating during PE for the next two weeks, possibly longer. Instead we will be having normal PE classes for now. Moscow’s weather is unfortunately not cooperating with us and we have no ice for ice skating.  For the crew to create the ice rink it needs to get to a certain temperature for a several days in a row.  When we have more information about ice skating we will send this information out.  If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact the elementary PE team. Thank you for your understanding and patience. Fingers crossed we get some cold weather here shortly!
