Happy Friday, Families!
It’s been a wild but great week here in Fourth Grade and we’re looking forward to the week ahead!
Our Valentine’s Parties are right around the corner! We are planning to celebrate with our classes on Tuesday, February 14 at 12:30. Parents are welcome to join! Your child’s class list was sent home to help with addressing Valentine’s cards. Also included were details for our Fourth Grade Valentine’s Box Contest.

Final Few Reminders…
Please make sure your child has headphones for the classroom. We use them daily when working on computers.
We are running low on wipes. If you would like to send any to your child’s homeroom, we would greatly appreciate it!
With the start of a new semester, students were given updated passwords for their computers and Clever accounts. QR codes for Clever logins were sent home previously in Friday Folders. There are instructions on the paper for accessing the site.
Have a wonderful weekend!
