Field Trip Information

Next Thursday, 4th grade is going to the Fort Worth Zoo. Please send your child with a sack lunch that does not need to be refrigerated. If you reserved a lunch when you returned your field trip permission slip, we will pick those up from the cafeteria. Students may bring a light backpack to carry their water bottle or personal belongings at the zoo, but they are responsible for what they bring.

As a reminder, chaperones will drive separately to the zoo.

Field Day @ Eaton High School

We will kick off field day at our Opening Ceremony in the parking lot behind Schluter Elementary at 8:45a. Then, everyone will walk over to Eaton to participate in the Olympic-themed Field Day. At noon, everyone will walk back to campus to eat lunch.

Students should wear tennis shoes, and they should bring a change of clothes, towel, and "Goldfish & Gatorade" or other snack/drink for the end of the day. We will finish the day with the traditional 5th grade "fireworks" behind the school.

What's Happening...

In the Classroom:

Language Arts - We started a new project called "Texas Staycation". Students are collaborating to create a website to persuade an audience to travel to a Texas city and to provide them with itinerary options. Ask your student to share the site with you! Have them explain their research and how they are creating the site.

Math - Students are working through their Financial Literacy project, where they are choosing a career, housing, and car. Then, they are creating a monthly budget. Your child may have questions about how you budget and what expenses you may have around the house. Use this time to talk to them about the importance of saving, budgeting, and what you use financial institutions for.

Science - As we continue learning about plant and animal adaptations, students are creating a bird and plant that can survive on a fantasy planet. Students are expected to use their creativity and give reasons how the adaptation will help them survive.

Report Cards, Grades, & Attendance....

Did you know that you can access your child's information at the Home Access Center? You can set customized alerts if your child is missing an assignment or has a certain grade. There is even an app for that! If you are unsure of your login, please contact the front office to help.

What's my login?

Access Moodle at home at moodle.nisdtx.org. Students' login is: firstname.lastname and password is their student ID number.

Under "My Courses", they can click on K.Dwyer - 4th for the course to find the Texas Symbols forum.

We are excited for more to come on that.
