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.

No Homework for Friday, September 8th (MAP Testing Math)

Please get a good night's sleep and eat a filling breakfast so that you have plenty of energy and stamina for our MAP Test tomorrow afternoon. 

*** Parents, enrichment confirmations are being sent home today, and most clubs will begin Monday. Many clubs had more students sign up than the number of spots of available, so I know that lotteries were run to determine who got into those clubs this session.

Homework for Wednesday, September 6th

1) Read for 20 minutes (reading logs will be assigned this week)
Optional) Try the Math Challenge Extension of today's Math activity (worksheets were passed on in math)

** MAP Testing (ELA) went very well today, and I appreciate how focused students were during testing, and how respectful they were of others when they finished.  Math MAP Testing will take place this Friday.

** Reading at home will be the only "required" homework until Open House next Wednesday. However, students can (and I encourage them to) practice math on ALEKS, practice grammar on IXL, practice reading using ReadTheory, or study a multitude of topics on BrainPop until then.
