We as a fourth grade will continue to do make hats this year. We will decide along with the Knitting For Neighbors Foundation to which local charity we will donate our completed works of art made with compassion.

AR Goal


Our current AR Goal Period is 9/25/2017 to 11/09/2017.  I am hoping the students can read one book a week unless the book is level 4.0 or higher.

 

Help your child reach their goal by keeping track online on the website I gave to you on Back To School Night! Thank you parents!

 

Volunteering

Looks like we have lots of people interested in driving for field trips! Hooray! This will make our year easier.

Please sign up on an Valencia Driver Information Form to update your insurance information.

 

If you haven't yet been TB tested through the District Office, please call them for information and start the process asap.

 

 

 

Thank YOU!

Thank you for your donations to the class supplies fund! They were quite generous,

and very much appreciated. We are set for when and if we need other items!

Homework Schedule

WEEKLY HOMEWORK: October 16th-October 20th

 

This week's homework in your child's folder is now due on Friday. They can turn it in early as I mentioned during Back To School Night, provided they have studied either the Vocabulary definitions or how to spell the Spelling words. 

 

The homework includes:

 

• READING nightly for 30 minutes from an AR book he/she should have in his/her backpack every day. Please make sure that book returns to school each time in your child's backpack. Thank you.

 

• MATH PAGE TO BE RETURNED THE FOLLOWING DAY.  Math Facts page to show your child's practice. Help them master the facts on the number they are on. Our tests include almost 100 problems in 5 minutes, so rote memory is key.

 

•VOCABULARY words. We will work on these words in class also through many exercises. Practice their definitions each night.  A test will be given on Friday.
