Math News

Mrs. Close's Class ~ This week we've been busy playing games like Set and 24. In addition, the kids have been practicing the multiple choice questions for the NYS Math Test. They've realized that even the multiple choice questions require scratch work in order to solve. In fact, some of those question are even multi-step! Please check over that work at some point during break. Kids are also bringing home corrected Module 6 assessments. Please sign and return. We'll continue with more practice the week after Spring Break.

Upcoming Field Trips - Another trip has been added!

On Tuesday, May 23rd the entire 4th grade will be traveling to Genesee Country Village & Museum. Student admission is $7 and adult chaperones are $11. Please contact me ASAP at closege@canandaiguaschools.org if you need financial assistance for your child's admission. Parents who are joining us will need to meet us there. Kids have to ride the bus to the field trip site, but can leave the museum with you if proper permission slips are returned prior to the field trip date. This paperwork will come out the first week of May.

Monday, June 19th will be our grade level trip to Onanda. This trip will cost $2 per student. The cost covers the pavilion rental and the busing to the park. The same procedures apply to this trip. Kids have to ride the bus to the park, but can be dismissed from the park with parents if appropriate paperwork is complete prior to the field trip to date.

I've recently scheduled our class to walk to Granger Homestead. The cost of this trip is $3 per student. While there, on June 21st from 9:30-11:15, the kids will learn about transportation.

Please fill out the google form below to express your express your interest in chaperoning. I'll keep this form in the newsletter for the next few weeks.

Your child is bringing home a 2-sided calendar to help keep us all organized as we juggle band, orchestra, swimming, and field trips! It's also down below as a pdf. I have triple checked, but please let me know if you see an error. Please note that the kids will not be swimming on May 4th due to the math test. We have to take turns missing that week as all am slots are cancelled. The kids will get extra recess that day instead of special.

April Book Orders

Orders have been placed and will hopefully be here when we return on April 24th!
