The warm weather has finally
arrived! There are many important dates to keep
in mind as we make our way through the month of
May. Our school play will be held on May 8th at
1 p.m. for senior citizens. The third graders
will go on their class trip on May 9th. Please
be sure to pack a bag lunch. Field day will be
held on Friday, May. 26th. Students will dismiss
at 12:30 p.m.. Please look for a notice that
will be sent home about team colors. Lastly,
school will be closed for Memorial Day on
Monday, May 29th.
In language arts, we have
begun reading Stuart Little as our class novel.
The students have been working in groups on a
book report throughout the story and will be
graded on their participation in class. In
social studies, we are finishing a unit on the
Boston Tea Party. The students have been working
on various activities as well as a daily
paragraph edit on this topic.
Please remember to read with
your child at least 10 minutes every night.
Fourth graders need 3 AR points by the end of
the marking period.
Students will receive two
pieces of homework every night. They always have
spelling and math homework. Please be sure to
check the planner to find out exactly what the
assignment is supposed to be. Also, please be
sure to sign your childís homework planner every
night. It is important to have an open line of
communication, and this is a great way to have
questions answered. Please help your child with
homework if he/she does not understand it. I do
not want anyone to be frustrated. A spelling
test will be given every Friday, so please help
your child study.
