Attendance UPDATE

The realistic goal is to have less than 5% chronically absent, but ultimately 0%. Chronically absent is defined as being out 10% of the days in school. This data impacts our STAR rating. Currently, we are at 11% chronically absent. Currently, we are in the top 30 schools of all RI schools. Keep up the great work!

Ready to Learn

Fourth Grade: In ELA, students build background knowledge about the Revolutionary War and the different perspectives of colonists. In the second half of the unit, students read about different groups within the Loyalists and Patriots, reading informational texts to determine the main idea, analyze the overall structure of the text, and summarize the texts.In science, students are investigating electricity and engaging in engineering design. Students are learning that energy is present whenever there is motion, electric current, sound, light, or heat, and that energy can transfer from one place to another. In math, students are using the partial products strategy to multiply up to four digit numbers. They are also solving problems involving measurement conversions and learning about angles.



Is your child not in Fourth Grade? Check back next week. Every week a different grade gets a turn.
