Can you believe we are approaching the final week of the semester?! Time has flown by, and we have loved all the time we have spent with your incredible fourth grader.
Notes for Next Week:
Winter Parties-Thursday, December 16: We have a fun day planned to celebrate all our effort and growth this semester and to say farewell to 2021 at school! Fourth graders may wear their pajamas and are welcome to bring in a board game to play during our party (please hold off on sending in games until Thursday). We plan to visit with our Kindergarten buddies and then return to our rooms for games, movies, trivia, and crafts. It will be a great send-off to Winter Break!
Check grades! Please make sure your child has checked their grades in all subjects on Schoology. As we continue to discuss the importance of organization, independence, and responsibility in the classroom, we encourage your child to let their teacher know of any assignments they would like to retake. Assignments must be completed by the end of the day on Thursday, December 16.
Laptops: As a reminder, laptops must be at school every day (as well as headphones). We would like student laptops to remain at school during the week unless a teacher has given specific directions to bring it home.
Sign up for Dashboard:
If you have not already signed up for your child’s Personalized Student Dashboard (we encourage this from both parents), please take a moment to complete this in order to meet our 100% participation goal. Directions with codes were sent in last week’s Friday Folder.
Recommendations and Shadow Days- If you are considering private school options for your child, please let their teacher know that recommendations are coming their way. If you are planning to schedule a shadow day at any middle school, we would prefer your child attending a day earlier in the week. Avoiding Thursdays and Fridays if at all possible would be helpful so they won’t have weekly assessments to make up.
Thank you again for your continuous support and encouragement this year. We already look forward to the week ahead with these amazing 4th graders. Have a fantastic weekend!
The Fourth Grade Team- Grace, Kate, Emily, and Jessica
