4th Grade News: 8/27

It’s been a great week in 4th grade! Please see below for important reminders and information on the week ahead.
Quick Reminders:
Supplies Needed: Your 4th grader needs headphones at school when using their computer. Please send in headphones (or earbuds that can stay in binders) for your child.
Check calendars: Over the weekend, take a look at your child’s Friday Folder and sign or initial inside the Saturday box so we know you have checked. Encourage your child to turn this in first thing Monday morning for a Tiger Ticket!
Complete first day forms: Please remember to fill out any first day paperwork and the link for the MNPS handbook.
  1. Percy Priest first day forms (return forms to school or visit the following link): https://percypriest.wpengine.com/parents/first-day-forms/
  1. MNPS handbook and permission forms (submit online at permissions.mnps.org)

 

Incentives:
-Homework: Our 4th graders will be “paid” for homework they complete on time! Students will have bank accounts that stay in their math class where they keep their “money” and account balances. Students are paid for math and ELA homework on a weekly basis and can shop in their class store with consistent homework completion. This incentive cannot be sustainable without your help. Please visit your class’s wish list to help us keep our stores stocked and ready for shoppers!
Desk Pets: When students earn five Tiger Tickets, they may turn them in to rescue a pet (animal erasers & squishies). Students will also be able to purchase accessories to care for their pet using additional earned Tiger Tickets.

PPE Technology Notes

Thank you so much for sending in laptops, cords, and hotspots over the past few weeks as we sync our inventory and make sure every student has a laptop!

New This Year: K, 1st, and 2nd grade students will not bring laptops home with them. The teachers have each been given a laptop cart where they can keep students laptops charged and ready to go. 3rd and 4th grade students will be bringing their laptops back and forth at their teacher’s discretion. You do not need to have a MNPS laptop to log into Lexia and iReady at home. They can be accessed on any web browser by going to Clever here.

Please send in any additional laptop charging cords, hotspots (unless needed by your family), laptops, and laptop cases as soon as possible. Thank you!
