Featured Class: 3rd Grade
This is the image for the news article titled Featured Class: 3rd GradeHappy Thanksgiving, Shorian Nation, a perfect time to revisit our own Thanksgiving parade!

Our 3rd grade team, consisting of 9 classrooms districtwide, designed and built their own miniature floats for a Thanksgiving Day Parade. First, they studied different types of floats. Next, they came up with four possible parade themes. After, they narrowed their choices, completed an organizer to share their ideas, and drew and built their prototype floats using household supplies. 
 
Watch this Parade Studio Tour field trip at Violet Elementary, featured on the Channel 4 news.

In addition, enjoy the creative floats from Masonic Heights Elementary, Rodgers Elementary, and Violet Elementary!

Third grader Hank Witte from Masonic Heights Elementary created the perfect Hot Wheels 2022 float. He explained, "I am a big fan of hot wheels and have over 100.  My favorite vehicle is a corvette and I would have it custom painted."

"This is my favorite project.  The only thing I have built before this was a Skee-Ball game with my dad," he continued.

Spending time with family and friends while being grateful for these moments is what this holiday is all about.

May this Thanksgiving be full of joy and peace for you and those you love. There is always something to be thankful for.  Please express your gratitude throughout this holiday break and remember this: We are thankful for the entire Lake Shore community for choosing us to serve your educational needs.
