THE WORD ON 3RD


 

SCHOOL UPDATES - WEEK OF 5/8/22 WELCOME FAMILIES NEEDED; HIRING COMMITTEE PARENT REPRESENTATIVES NEEDED; PERIODIC COVID TESTING






 

WELCOME FAMILIES NEEDED

Before we all head off for the summer, we’re looking for folks who are interested in volunteering to be a Welcome Family for incoming new students and their families in grades 1st through 5th in the fall. This is an opportunity to welcome new Third Street families who have moved into the area and/or transferred from another school and help them settle into our school community.


Welcome Families will be asked to:

  • reach out to the family at some point before the new school year

  • offer yourself as a resource and support in the transition and throughout the new family's first year at school.

  • if possible, make arrangements for a play date (Zoom or in person, depending on comfort levels) so that your kids can be introduced to act as a friendly, familiar face in the early weeks of the school year and beyond

If you’re able to help or have any questions, please e-mail:


PAL/UTK CC/UTK/K: Rachelgblaine@gmail.com or Lindseyroseberman@gmail.com

Grades 1-5: sarahfrankmeltzer@gmail.com


HIRING COMMITTEE PARENT REPRESENTATIVES NEEDED

3rd Street is in the process of hiring new teachers to be a part of our faculty for the 2022-23 school year and seeking parents interested in being a part of the hiring committee. Most interviews and demonstration lesson observations will occur during school hours and it is estimated that a 5-8 hour time commitment is needed. Interested parents should contact Principal Kim at daniel.kim@lausd.net.

PERIODIC COVID TESTING

Our COVID periodic testing this week will take place on Friday, May 27th.
