Weekly Update 10/11

Wow! Thank you so much to all who volunteered/participated at our Move-a-Thon this year! It was so much fun. I had a blast running with students past and present, and definitely woke up sore on Friday morning! We are blessed to have this community.

This week, students are having lots of fun learning! In Math, we are focusing on multi-digit addition and subtraction. Here’s a photo of students using technology in the classroom (Front Row) to practice their math fluency skills. Please encourage your child to use Front Row at home, too!

In Social Studies, students are still learning all about our earth! They are studying time zones and climates! In Writing, students continue to gain skills in order to write personal narratives.  This week, we are focusing on writing hooks. We’ve had a lot of fun rewriting “boring” hooks to make them more exciting for our readers! In Religion, we are beginning a unit on The Ten Commandments.  Students are gaining skills each week in Coding. I encourage you to check out TechSmartKids to see what your coder has been up to!

As a class, students are still focusing on having self control, acting with integrity and being respectful to all. I encourage you to have a conversation with your child about what they can do to practice these values this week.

  1. Our Gala Kick-Off party is THIS Friday, October 13th, 6:30 – 9:30 PM. I hope to see you there! Cheers! 
  2. The Global Reading Challenge book are going to be here on Thursday! Yay! I am so glad to report that a very large majority of 4th Graders are participating this year. It’s going to be a blast!
  3. Its that time of year again… students are getting sick! Please help us all out by ensuring your child gets enough sleep, washes their hands, and stays home to recover if they become sick. Thanks!

Thank you all for reading! I hope you have a great rest of your week. Thank you for your continued support.
