Flying into 2nd Quarter!

I can't believe that the 1st quarter is complete! This year is really flying by! Thank you for all of the support you give to your child's education both inside and outside the school walls. With our amazing digital learning initiative your child has had opportunities for learning that most school districts can only dream of! Watching your children become accustomed to the iPad and seeing them use it to maximize their learning and challenge themselves is such a great sight!

A few important reminders:

  • Today is an early release
  • Please remember to send a healthy snack for your child every day
  • Grades can be viewed this evening! Please take time and have your child log in to Power School to share his/her progress! Please remember that your child's learning is developmental and seeing "2's" on the report card is NOT a bad thing! It means that your child is starting to grasp the concept and is working towards the "3"- 4th grade concepts start to get difficult your children are working very hard!
  • It's getting cold! Please send hats and mittens every day for your child

Please vote for Bay Port for PROJECT INNOVATE! We're in 5th place and need to get into 1st for the wifi-grant!! Anyone 13 and older can vote! CLICK HERE!

Education's Purpose Is To Replace An Empty Mind...With An Open One---Malcom S. Forbes

Math-This week we've continued to perfect our division process. Many of you have seen your child come home with a new "method" for solving division problems. By this point, each student should have their "way" of solving whether it be the traditional algorithm or the "box" or "column" method. We have also started discussing what can happen with remainders. For tutorials on the "new division" please see our planner page!

Writing-We have been working on a Thanksgiving themed piece! Check our hallway display next week to see your child's published work! (Or have him/her share the document with you in their drive!)

ELA-We have been working on questioning strategies and learning how to answer questions using complete sentences. The class did a really good job on this!!! I was impressed! We are also continued discussing the importance of rereading!

Science-We are learning about static electricity! Your child has notes in Notability and also several study resources in Schoology to help him/her with this concept! We'll be assessing this next week, and then diving into circuit electricity.

Our read aloud book is still "Deep, Dark & Dangerous"--- The class is thoroughly captured by this book and they get upset when we have to stop reading each day because they are dying to know what happens next! (I love it!)

Introducing Mrs. Erno!

Hello 4th Grade Families!

My name is Jenna Erno and I am the new student teacher working with the 4th grade team! I am really excited to be back at Forest Glen and looking forward to a wonderful second quarter. Before I started student teaching, I worked at Forest Glen for three years as support staff. I then started off the 2015-2016 school year at Bay View Middle School working with 7th graders. When I am done with my student teaching at Forest Glen, I am hoping to sub within the district. I will be graduating in January with a major in Special Education and Elementary Education.

On a personal note...My husband and I love going to our cottage in Pembine, WI. We enjoy spending time outdoors with our two dogs, Champ and Remi. We are most excited about our growing family...we are expecting a baby boy in March!

I am really looking forward to getting to know each of the student's and learning from them all! Let's make a great second quarter!
