BRINGING MAKING CARING COMMON INTO 2023-2024
Attention all parents and caregivers! Third Street is bringing back the Making Caring Common program next year, which was created at Harvard University and aims to foster a positive, caring culture of kindness in schools.
The program will be parent-led and we are looking for volunteers to work with the teachers in classrooms, our amazing student council, help give out kindness pins (as shown in the photo), acknowledge students’ kind acts at Spirit Days, help with special events, classroom parties, staff pampering, parent socials, etc. We’ll take as little or as much time that you have! Please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re interested!
3RD STREET’S GOT TALENT!
Mark your calendars and start the rehearsals for the annual return of 3RD Street’s Got Talent on Friday, June 2nd at 6pm!
