Science Museum Field Trip
This is just a reminder that you may send in your check made to Shady Grove for $13 for the Science Museum field trip. We will be collecting each day this week. If you have not sent in the permission slip, please send it as well. If you are interested in being a chaperone for this field trip, please send in the bottom portion of the letter on Monday (3/26). I will be picking chaperones on Monday at school.
We will be having a science quiz on the Animals and Ecosystem unit on Tuesday, March 27. While the quiz covers the entire unit, much of the material is a review of previous knowledge, with the exception of new vocabulary.
Our third quarter science benchmark will be on Wednesday, March 28. This is cumulative of the entire year thus far.
Virginia Studies Quiz
We will have a quiz on VS.8abc on Thursday, March 29.
Word Study Quiz
Students will be tested on their Word Study words this Friday, March 30. Their Word Study practice work will also be due on this day. If a student feels prepared and wants to take their test early, they may do so.
We will start the whole-grade rehearsals for the VA Play on Thursday, March 29. We will have rehearsals on March 29 and 30 and April 2, 3, and 4. Students only need to bring in their costumes on the date of the play (April 5). Rehearsals will be at the very beginning of the day and at the very end of the day. Thank you for trying to avoid dropping off your child late or picking them up early on these dates.
April 6 and May 25
As you might now know, April 6 and May 25 will now be additional holidays. April 6 (was a half day for students) was supposed to be our Career Day. I will pass on more information as to rescheduling when I find it out.
Please check with your child to see if they need any supplies to get them through the school year. We are completely out of glue sticks, although we still have glue bottles to use. We are all set with community pencils and erasers.
Fourth grade teachers thought it was a good time to remind our parents of girls that dress, skirt, and shorts lengths need to checked. We realize the girls have grown, and they are wearing clothes from last fall. Some of them do not realize when they jump, run, or bend over, they are showing more than they intended. Shorts are to reach the fingertips of your child.
