4th Grade Gazette January 2016

Ringing in the New Year!

Happy New Year and Welcome Back!

Dear Parents,

I hope you and your families thoroughly enjoyed the winter holidays and had ample time to enjoy activities and to rest and relax together.

To ring in the New Year, we sent home 2nd grading period report cards on Wednesday, January 6th. If you have any questions or need to schedule a conference, please email me or one of the other team teachers listed below. We will be looking at scheduling round two of parent/teacher conferences for February/early March in order to discuss academic issues prior to Milestone testing in April.

Although I can't describe how much I enjoyed spending the winter break with my own daughter, I can honestly say that I am excited to see your child here back at school and his or her classmates and to get started with all of the new learning content that we will be exploring. 2016 is going to be a great year in fourth grade!
