An Ode to Third Grade

by: Charlie D. '29, Third Grader
Third graders were asked to write a poem as they reflected on their third grade year. Obviously the 2019-2020 school year had an unexpected ending! Read one student's poem here:

Ode to Third Grade
by Charlie D.

Third grade was a great year
But it ended with germs meaning we couldn’t be near

It was fun having a locker
But don’t stand there being a talker,

We read Sarah Plain and Tall
And now there’s nothing in my desk at all.

Be the Change was our show
Standing up for others is an important lesson to know.

In math, we learned the order of operations
Mrs. Hensler has high expectations!

The project share on wetlands was neat
But during morning work you better be in your seat.

School has been a lot of fun
But now it’s over, the end, it’s done

Coronavirus has been a bummer
But I’m still excited for the summer!
