This is an all school event held one morning prior to school on the playground. PTSA hires a mobile pancake truck who prepares the pancakes on school grounds. This is a great way to hang out with teachers, parents and friends before beginning a day of school.
F3 (Fall Fitness Fun)
This is C3's all school version of a fun run with an emphasis on fun! Students will help raise money by running laps on the field with supporters cheering them on! Vendors are brought in to provide encouragement and information in the areas of education, sports, and fitness. Tickets are sold and a live drawing held for a variety of prizes. Food and beverages are served to wrap up the afternoon/evening.
box tops contest
Classes and/or students engage in a contest to see who can bring in the most dimes or cut box tops (grocery receipt scans count too!) to help win a prize. This could be a teacher surprise, a classroom prize or individual prizes as contest rules vary to keep this fun and engaging.
square 1 arts
Students create masterpieces on a piece of paper that are uploaded to the Square 1 Arts website. These uploads can be turned into precious gifts from the heart that parents and other loved ones can purchase. This is a great opportunity for some really special holiday gifts.
Each year, the week before Thanksgiving break our C3 book fair is held in person. Students have the opportunity to walk through beforehand and make their wish lists. Teachers also choose books they would love to have in their classroom that families can donate. This activity coincides with Grandpeople's Day where many grandparents and other special people come to browse and shop for their loved ones to encourage the joy of reading.
Each year in conjunction with the book fair, students design their own bookmarks. Winners are selected from each grade and receive a free book from the book fair. All bookmarks are laminated and returned to the student to take home. Winning book marks are sold during book fair week and Grandpeople's Day.
This is an annual tradition for C3 where we take the day before Thanksgiving break to gather with grandparents and other special people in each of the student's lives. Usually this involves a large gathering to welcome everyone, visiting their student in their classroom and attending the book fair. This is a very special day at C3 with many loved ones being able to experience a morning at school with their loved one.
Holiday PTSA Meeting
While PTSA meetings are held monthly, this is a very special meeting. We usually gather with some fun holiday goodies and make holiday cards for the teachers and staff. It is a great time to get together and plan how to make the season special.
Holiday giving for c3 staff and teachers
Every year we collect money that is turned into a monetary gift for all the C3 staff and teachers. This monetary gift is put into one of our handmade cards and given to them to be used on anything they wish. Many wet eyes are had as they experience the depth of gratitude from our C3 community.
C3 has a heart
KCT Council led projects and events during February each year including card creation/sales to benefit a community-based nonprofit organization serving children.
