Fourth Grade Riparian Day Written by the Fourth Grade (typed by Kody)
The fourth grade Riparian Day Field trip was unforgettable! First,we broke up into six stations. The stations were fly casting, aquatic insects,a scavenger hunt,and water coloring trout flys, and also a trout food source poster activity. After that we had a barbecue lunch and Mr. Reeder grilled the best hot dogs ever for our class. We also had chips, apples, and lemonade that was donated from a class parent. Finally, we had a tug of war competition and boat races. The girls won against the boys. The children conquered the adults and the eight mothers won against the two fathers. Finally, we raced our boats. Alexis and Brooke got first place and Grady,Gurjaap,and Jack got second place and last but not least David Hatfield and Colby came in third place. The fourth grade riparian day field trip was unforgettable! We would like to thank Trout Unlimited, Ms. Mary, Faye Wilkinson, Bennie Johnson, the US Forest Service, our teachers, and our parents for making this trip possible.
About Chester Elementary School
Attendance Matters - We need your child at school everyday....please?
We understand children get sick, and we want your child home resting when he/she is sick with a fever and could potentially be contagious. We ask that you talk to your child about the importance of attending school each day, and send your child to school everyday, unless he/she is sick.
With our district's schedule providing a week off for Thanksgiving, two weeks off for Christmas, one week off in February, one week off in April and approximately eight weeks off in the summer, we hope families can plan their vacations around those off times so they don't miss school? We appreciate your cooperation and hope to see your child at least 97% of the school days this year. We also appreciate you calling us if your child has to miss school (258-3194). Thank you.
