Homework

Please remember it is to be returned daily with your parent signature acknowledging that your child has completed their 30 minutes of reading and assignments for that night. It is important to return every day so that you know of their daily behavior. 2 hours of reading, 2 Achieve 3000 articles and math review are the weekly requirements. If needed, your child may double up a night on reading or Achieve 3000 but please DO NOT go ahead on Math as we are learning new concepts each day. Thank you for your support.

Mission Project

Mission project is due this Wednesday, NOVEMBER 12, 2014. For more information, please visit the link below on the 4th grade blog. I can't wait to see what your child came up with!
