Fourth grade will be taking the mid-year benchmarks in reading and math. Reading will be on January 22-23. Math will be on January 24-25. The best way to review for math is by going over the math notebook, concentrating on each skill taught this year.

It’s off to Jamestown we go! On November 19th, we will be going on one of the highlights of fourth grade field trips. Please return the field trip form and the $25 fee as soon as possible. If you would like to be considered for a chaperone, please fill out the bottom but do not send a fee at this time. I hope to take all willing parents, but if I have more volunteers than I’m allowed to take, I will be “pulling names out of a hat”. Looking forward to it!
The students and I have gone over the project again. All questions have been answered. The new due date is Friday, Nov. 9. If your child is fnished early, he/she can bring it in early.
Please remember to send in a small snack each day with your child. I have 3-5 students every day without a snack. I have gone through all the snacks that parents have sent in and I have had to buy additional ones to hand out. In addition, snack time is during reading centers and the students asking for a snack are interrupting the reading group working with me. So, please remember to pack one each day. Thank you!
School pictures will now be on Monday, October 22.
Donuts for Dad will be on Friday, November 2nd from 7:30-8:00 in the cafeteria.
Picture day is on Friday, Oct. 12. All students will be photographed whether or not they are buying a package. The photos will be used for the yearbook. SMILE!
The gifted information meeting is on Thursday, Oct. 4, from 6-7pm. It will be held in the cafeteria. If you are interested in learning more about this program and the process of identification, please make plans to attend.
