The Census! Multi-Ethnic Dinner Night! Getting Ready for Veteran's Day!



Things are going mighty well in F3! Today we got to speak with Dr. Robert Groves, Director of the US Census. Dr. Groves was kind enough to talk to us on the phone for fifteen minutes. About a dozen kids asked great questions such as: How are homeless people counted? How are people in the military counted? and, Are translators hired? Dr. Groves wrote about our interview on his blog! The kids were thrilled to do the interview and I am excited to focus on the census throughout the year.

Tonight was the Multi-Ethnic Dinner night at Maple. It was fantastic to see so many F3 parents! Thanks so much for signing up for conferences. I look forward to seeing you in a few weeks.

The next exciting event for F3 is Veterans' Day, and the Veterans' Care Package drive. For the last two years, students in F3 have helped organize the assembly and the care package drive that follows. We'll be asking kids at Maple to bring in items for the drive from November 12 to the 19th. On the 20th, we'll be busy packing up the boxes to send to a base in Afghanistan.

All the best,
-Ms. V
