GES 4th Grade Newsletter

Your inside scoop to ALL things 4th grade!

StoryWorks Subscription

The 4th grade teachers would like to place an order for a subscription to Storyworks Magazine. Each issue will allow us to build the reading, writing, and thinking skills your child needs to succeed in school and beyond. With your contribution, we'll get 6 issues that your child can bring home and keep. You will also have access to Storyworks Online which will feature videos, audio read-alouds, articles, and more. Please send payment in the form of cash or check in the amount of $9.50 by this Friday, Sept. 22nd. We appreciate your support!

Carnival & Auction News

The countdown to the annual GES Carnival & Auction is on, and it is now time to think of our grade level auction baskets! This year auction baskets will be a collaborative grade level effort. Each grade has been assigned a number of basket themes and we are asking families to contribute to one or as many as you would like. For more information, click the link below. A letter will also be going home in each child's folder. We are so excited to see what each grade comes up with!

4th Grade Basket Assignments are: Tournament Weekend, Moms Just Wanna Have Fun, Harry Potter Mania, Dinner is Served on Main Street, Total Wine Experience, and Try Your Luck!

4th Grade Auction Coordinators: Heidi Doty, and Melanee Warren

Parent Conferences

Teachers are currently meeting with all parents for beginning of the year conferences. This will be a time for you to share information about your child with his/her teacher. Assessment data and classroom observations will be shared with you. We look forward to meeting with you and learning more about your child! Please make sure you have signed up for your conference time via the Sign-up Genius sent by your child's teacher.
