Ms. Howe's Weekly News Letter

August 14, 2015


What a great turn out last night! After meeting everyone, I am even more excited. We are going to have a FANTASTIC year. I hope that you all are just as excited. Each week, I will send out a weekly newsletter to keep you informed of important events and content being taught/discussed in class. Fourth grade is a BIG year and you will see your student grow and mature right before your eyes.

After School Programs

If you wish for your child to attend Challenger and have not yet signed up, please be aware that even if you sign up the first day, they will not be able to attend for a few weeks.
We will also offer our Pirate Program again this year. This is a great way to extend your student's learning after school hours.
If you are interested in either of these programs, please contact me and I will send you in the right direction.

Swimming...Yes Swimming!

This year your student will take swim lessons through the YMCA at the Aquatic Center. I know this seems a little silly right now, but once cooler weather approaches and summer clothes are put away, keep this in mind and keep the bathing suits out. The kids always enjoy this special time in fourth grade!!!
