A Special Event

The Wedding
by Danielle F.

Well, today is was super fun.  It was a wedding!  SO now here's the story of a romantic wedding...

First it was dating and then... one of the boys got on one knee and said, "Will you marry me?"  The girl said, "Yes, I will marry you."  So then they had their wedding and it was really fun!  And then me, my mom, my dad, my cousin, my aunt, my uncle, my grandma and my grandpa all went to Renault Winery.  That restaurant has beer, wine and food.  We ate, danced and celebrated.  The wedding was November 19th, and my birthday is on November 20th.  And speaking of birthday, everybody said, "Happy Birthday!" to me, even people I didn't know.  It was so amazing.   The bride's name is Leslie, and the groom's name is Mario.  He is my brother.  They sang Happy Birthday, and they gave me a cupcake from Luscious and Sweet.  It was so good.  It tasted like a candy cane.  And most important. we all danced to music.  I hope I get married some day!

A Great Assembly

The Illusion Maker
by Kiera T.

Have you ever been to an Illusion assembly?  If you didn't, well I will tell you all about it.  The Illusion assembly is about reduce, reuse, recycle.  The assembly was really fun and funny.  It also taught me a lot.  We played a lot of fun games, and they were really fun!  The things that I learned I can use at school and at home.  All the things that the presenter told us we can use them in the future and right now.  I hope that the people who ran the Illusion Maker assembly come back next year so the new third graders can learn what I learned when they came!

The Bug Invader
by Katie S.

It was time for rocket math when bad approached us.  There, in Stanton land was a wasp, the dreaded wasp.  Everyone was freaking out and this was bad news for Stanton land.  Grace Kaplan was the first victim.  She had the wasp land on her head.  She must have been very scared.  Along came Mrs. Stanton the hero.  The bug had landed on a bag, at one of the centers.  Super hero, Mrs. Stanton, hit the bug and it died. The bug was gone and everyone was happy.

Ronald McDonald Rocks the House

The McDonald's Assembly
by Habiba M.
Hi there, blog readers!  A couple of weeks ago we had a McDonald's Assembly.   Ronald McDonald was talking about doing kind things for others.  Ronald did some tricks for the students and teachers!  Our friend Dave S. was on stage, too!  Ronald rode on his bicycle and a unicycle.  He shared some tricks with us.  He is very, very, very funny.  He was talking about helping others.  That was a great day in Stanton Land.  I hope you had fun at the McDonald's assembly, too!

by Dave S.

When we had the assembly it was fun,  We learned to do kind things.  That was great, and we learned that if someone needs help you can help them.  I like the part when Ronald McDonald did a pop-a-wheely.  That was cool!  He did a lot of cool tricks on his bicycle and unicycle.  The funny part was when we clapped in a circle for a "round of applause."  I got to go to the stage, and I got to help Ronald McDonald.  There were more people on the stage:  Mrs. Nastasi, Mr. Giardina, another student and me.  Some of the people got a pencil and a sticker.  Guess what- Ronald McDonald's real name is Dave.  That's the same name as mine!  That was cool.  It was a fun time at the assembly.  We laughed so hard because Ronald McDonald was so, so funny.  I hope we are having another assembly with Ronald McDonald because he was so funny.

Happy Birthday, Mr. President!

We learned so much about George Washington and his famous home, Mount Vernon!
Here are two patriotic posts by Ethan N. and Haram S.

George Washington
Mount Vernon Virtual Mansion Tour
  By Ethan N.

Have you ever wanted to visit Mount Vernon, where George Washington lived? On the Mount Vernon Virtual Mansion Tour you can. You can see the first, second, and third floor of where Washington lived with his wife, Martha. You can visit the dining room where George ate his meals; see the room he slept in and many other places in the Washington mansion. And you don’t have to get up to leave and waste a lot of time to book your trip. Also there are caption-like boxes to read special things about the room. I hope you enjoyed your visit Mrs. Stanton’s class blog to learn more about George Washington and his house.
A Strong Leader
by Haram S.
George Washington is the first President that comes to mind.  Do you know why?  Not because he was President.  He in age 17 was an important person.  He was a surveyor.  Surveyors are people who make maps.  Back then, people needed maps to explore our new world.  George was really working hard, and he began working for Governor Dinwiddie.  His governor gave him a task that was to tell the French to get out of the land that belonged to England.  They said, "No!"  That started a war, and George fought for us too.  Then we fought the War for Independence.  Then people said he should be President.  Well, he did.  He had only two terms.  He married a woman named Martha Custis.  He died after 45 years with his wife.  But don't remember George Washington for his death.  Remember him for his braveness and respect.
