ANNUAL GIVING ENDS FRIDAY
Annual giving ends THIS FRIDAY! We are at 70% participation school-wide, and our goal is 100%. Let’s make a strong finish Panthers!
● 7 out of 32 classes have reached 100% participation
● 26 out of 32 classes have over 50% participation
Every teacher whose class reaches 100% participation will receive a gift card, and each 100% class will have a donut party. Make sure your class hits 100% - click here to see where your class stands:https://tinyurl.com/2023FOTAGParticipation
If you are in a position to offer a sponsorship and help your class get to 100%, please reach out to email@example.com for more info.
Last year corporate matches brought in over $15,000 from the following companies:
Viacom, Disney, Netflix, Apple, Sony, Bank of America, Ares Management, and Voya Financial. Have you checked with your employer to see if they will match your giving? This is an easy way to boost your donation and help FOT reach our fundraising goal.
Friends of Third’s Annual Giving Drive funds vital programs that are ABOVE AND BEYOND what LAUSD covers — technology, science, drama, music, art and more. The suggested donation is $1,250 per student but every meaningful donation, no matter the amount, is appreciated and helps us to meet our goal.
You can set up a payment plan that works for your family at: www.friendsofthird.org/donate
Let’s work together toward 100% school-wide participation since 100% of our kids benefit from these great programs! Last year we reached 100% school-wide participation for the first time ever. Help us do it again this year!
Thank you for your incredible support of Third Street’s Annual Giving Drive!

작년 아래와 같은 기업으로부터 기부금액 매치를 통해 $15,000의추가 기금을 마련하였습니다. Viacom, Disney, Netflix, Apple, Sony, Bank of America, Ares Management, and Voya Financial. 혹시 여러분의 직장에서 이와 같은 기부 금액 매치에 동참해 줄 수있나요? 이것은 여러분의 기부를 증진 시키고 FOT가 우리의 모금목표를 달성할 수 있도록 돕는 쉬운 방법입니다.
Friends of Third의 연례 기부 운동 기금은 LAUSD가 다루는 것 이상의 중요한 프로그램 – 기술, 과학, 드라마, 음악, 미술 등을 위한 자금을 지원합니다. 제안된 연간 기부 금액은 학생 1인당 1,250달러이지만 금액에 상관없이 모든 의미 있는 기부는 감사하며 우리의 목표를 달성하는 데 도움이 됩니다.
아래의 링크에서 결제 플랜을 세울 수 있습니다.
우리 아이들의 100%가 이 좋은 프로그램의 혜택을 받고 있습니다. 우리 모두 학교 전체의 100% 참여를 위해 함께 노력해주세요! 작년 처음으로 전교생 100% 참여를 달성했습니다. 올해도 이룰 수 있도록 도와주세요!
3가 학교의 연례 기부 운동에 보여준 여러분의 놀라운 지지에 감사드립니다!

COMMUNITY MEETING & SPIRIT DAY FRIDAY
Did you know that our Friday Community Meetings are actually the official PTA monthly meetings? If you are hoping to get involved with the PTA, be sure to come to our monthly meeting October 6, 2023 at 8:15AM in the auditorium. Refreshments served! One of this month’s featured discussions is magnet school admissions.
Friday is also our monthly school spirit day! Hats, Hats, Hats.. big, small, we love them all! Don't forget your hats on Friday October 6, 2023 for Spirit Day!
MAKING CARING COMMON UPDATE
Next week, our 50 volunteers will be going back into the classrooms to teach a lesson on Listening Deeply Part Two (not interrupting and asking questions to show concern)
To complement our class lesson, please practice developing empathy at home with this worksheet: How To Help Kids Develop Empathy
Email email@example.com once you complete the assignment. Five families will be randomly selected to win Levain cookies!
Special thanks to local resident and real estate broker Pete Buonocore who bought customized MCC T-shirts for all the volunteers
October Kindness Challenge
Continuing the Making Caring Common tradition that was started last year by Ms. H. Lee and Ms. Hong, we will be having another school-wide October Kindness Challenge for three weeks (from October 9 — 27). Every classroom will have a "100 acts of kindness" chart. As the students complete kind acts, their initials will be added to one of the hearts. The first four classrooms to fill up the chart and have all students participate will receive pumpkins for the whole class. Every class that completes the chart will be entered into a raffle to win a pizza party donated by Village Pizzeria on Larchmont. We will hold the raffle and announce the winning classroom during the November 3 Spirit Day!
REFLECTIONS HAS BEGUN!
