4th Grade News: 9/30

Happy Friday, Families!
It is hard to believe we are gearing up for the last week of Quarter 1! It will be a great week with our next HOUSE SPIRIT DAY (and Navigator Day) on Tuesday, October 4. Your child can come to school dressed up with house spirit–mainly items that represent their house’s color (optional!):
Our Navigator Day will be led by Sollevare, and focuses on giving to Second Harvest Food Bank. We will be having a food drive at PPE next week. Stay tuned for more information!

Please see below for important reminders and information on the week ahead.


Quarter One will wrap up next Thursday, October 6th! Please make sure you have checked grades in Schoology and/or Infinite Campus to see if there are any missing assignments that need to be completed before that day. Please contact us if you have any questions. Retakes will continue until the 6th!
