Classroom News

Week of September 17

Dear Parents,

This is a short week. Friday is an Inservice Day, which means no school for students. There will be no spelling test, but the spelling packet is due on Thursday. There is no math homework Monday night since students were correcting their math tests during class today. They will have math homework the rest of the week. This will also allow one more day for children needing to finish any Chapter 1 math homework time to catch up before we begin Chapter 2 on Tuesday. Missing Math homework was listed in their planner last week. Tests will be sent home in Friday Folders with the option to correct any missed problems for half credit.  They will have math homework the rest of the week.

Ask your children about the tree they “adopted” on Friday. As part of our Fun Friday Nature and Science time, students “Adopted a Tree” to observe throughout the year. This will also be their special tree to visit with their kindergarten Green Team Buddy as we discuss ways to make our school site more “Green.”

Enjoy this last week of summer and the summer weather as we officially move into fall!

Week of September 10-14

Dear Parents,

Thank you for getting the Space Week Field Trip releases in right away. Since this is hosted by the Air Force Academy, things are very strict. Sorry, they do not allow chaperones and only teachers/school staff may come. We all have to have a security clearance. This was the release for the Air Force, which they will collect tomorrow when they come to talk to our students. The trip is on October 9 and the bus Field Trip Permission Slip will be sent home soon with more specifics. This trip is only offered to classes with a NASA Teacher Liaison and we are fortunate that Ms. Gordon and Mr. Dunbar are both at our school allowing us this special invitation.

P.S. It was great seeing everyone at Back to School Night. Anyone who was unable to come, please don’t hesitate to see me if you have any questions. The information is all on our website. I will post a weekly update here each week.

Have a fantastic week!

Week of September 6-10, 2018

Dear Parents,

What a great start to a Fantastic Fourth Grade year!

You children are in the groove with our regular classroom routines now in every subject. The have nightly math homework, spelling homework, and should be reading 30 minutes each night as well. Please check your child’s binder to see our workbooks for math and spelling along with a planner which they are responsible for filling our each day. Students should be independent in completing their homework; however, I ask that you please check over the math homework to make sure that your child is practicing it correctly. I check off homework 10 points for completed assignments and 5 point if partly done. Student will check their own work in the morning.

I hope to see you all at Back to School Night on Tuesday from 6-7:30.

Have a wonderful week!
