Homework for Monday, September 25th

1) Read for at least 20 minutes and record your minutes on your reading log
2) Drink a lot of water! It was very hot at school today

** Students now have accounts on Prodigy, a math-based adventure game. This is not a required website, and is just an option for students once they have finished their assigned work. My students last year really enjoyed using it, and it has a lot more math than most "fun" math websites. However, there is a "paid" membership option, that allows users to add certain powers or accessories. This membership does not add any additional academic aspects, and I do not encourage students/parents to pay for this option. So if it pops up or your students mentions it, don't let them fool you into thinking you should buy it.

No homework for Friday, September 22nd

There is no assigned homework (and no school tomorrow) due to the religious holiday. However, students who are not observing the holiday are highly encouraged to read, study their spelling words, and practice math on ALEKS. There will be a spelling quiz on Friday, but students may take it on Monday if they choose due to the holiday.

See you on Friday!

Homework for Friday, September 15th

1) Read for 20 minutes and log your reading
2) We will be taking a "practice" spelling test tomorrow. The grades won't count but I would still encourage students to study to get into the habit.

** I will be out the next few school days due to a family event. Mrs. Morof will be the substitute and we've been planning together over the past few weeks so that all schedules, routines, and lessons will continue as planned. If there is an emergency, please contact the front office.

Open House Presentation

Wednesday, September 13, 2017

Homework for Thursday, September 14th

1) Read for 20 minutes and log your reading

* Tomorrow is QUARTERS for Hurricane Relief donations (but all coins are accepted).
The festivities begin in the main gym at 6:30pm where Principal Grable will welcome parents back and provide school information. Following the presentation, parents will go to their student's classroom for the class based presentation. There are two, identical sessions (7:00-7:20, 7:30-7:50) for parents that have students in more than one room. (FYI - if you do have another, non-4th grade student in the school, I would recommend attending the other session first, as we have a big class and it's going to be crowded.) 

Can't wait to meet everyone! In case you can't make it, all information will be posted on this blog tonight.
