THIRD STREET’S GOT TALENT RETURNS JUNE 7TH

Third Street’s Got Talent (3SGT) is BACK by popular demand for a fantastic fourth season! This wonderful community event will be held outdoors at school on Friday, June 7th at 6pm. There is no participation fee and it is open to current Third Street singers, dancers, musicians, actors, magicians, comedians, poets, and talents of all kinds! In an effort to keep the show moving and manageable, group acts will be prioritized, especially for our youngest performers. All students who are interested in participating must have a parent/caregiver register here by Friday, May 17th. Auditions will be held during recess the week of May 27th. We can’t wait to see your students shine!


THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING THE WALKATHON!

Thank you to everyone who helped make Walkathon such a success.  We raised $120,000 which will help provide funding for all of our amazing enrichment programs at Third Street.


If your student won a prize in the raffle or were in the top 3 earners, please stop by the table in the lunch pavilion Monday morning to pick up their prize.  If that timing doesn’t work, please email Beth at elizabeth.schmidt@gmail.com, and she can arrange to get it to you.



ADDITIONAL REMINDERS


WE STILL NEED MORE CENTENNIAL COMMITTEE VOLUNTEERS

Did you know that Third Street will be celebrating our Centennial next year?! In honor of 100 years of excellence, we’re already beginning to plan special events and activities for the 2024/25 school year.


It will surely take a village to pull this off so we’re forming a Centennial committee of current parents, alumni, and teachers. If you love Third Street and want to be a part of something truly special, this is for you!


This is an all hands on deck committee. We are looking for people with specific knowledge in areas of construction, editing/videography, producing/directing, and event planning.


Please email Jenn Rojas at jcornwall17@gmail.com and Connie Cho at Connie.Yang@gmail.com to learn more!
