Fourth Grade News

Week of March 21-24, 2016

There's Excitement in the Air!!

After weeks of practice and preparation, the fourth graders are anxious to perform this year's fourth grade play, The American Revolution, for our families and friends this week. Our first performance will be Wednesday morning's "dress rehearsal" in front of the pre-k - 1st graders, followed by our command performance for our families on Wednesday evening at 7:00 p.m. We will have a third and final performance for the rest of our student body on Thursday morning before we head off to City Park at 10:15 a.m. for a much deserved celebration of their hard work. We look forward to seeing you all on Wednesday night in the Salem Theatre.

Just a Reminder!

Thank you to our parents who have volunteered to help out with our pre-play preparations. Please remember to have your child brought to the Salem Theatre Wednesday evening by 6:15 p.m. The play will begin promptly at 7:00 p.m., followed by a brief reception in the back of the Salem Theatre with cake and punch to celebrate the students' success.

No Homework Assigned This Week

Due to the play schedule, we are not assigning homework this week, but we ask that the students continue with their independent reading during the week. Thank you!

Easter Eggs Needed for our Hunt in City Park on Thursday!

On Thursday, after our final performance, we will be taking the fourth graders to City Park for a surrey bike scavenger hunt, bbq, and Easter egg hunt put on by our room moms and parent volunteers. To make the egg hunt a success, each student is asked to bring in a dozen filled and numbered Easter eggs before Thursday. We are also seeking parent volunteers to help with the picnic and hunt, so please sign up, using the signupgenius link, provided by our room mom, JJ Kornman.

Congratulations to Academic Games Player, Pete Metzinger!

We would like to congratulate Pete Metzinger for his outstanding performance in this year's Academic Games. Pete competed in all four of the New Orleans Academic Games League city-wide tournaments, competing in the Elementary Division (4th -6th grade) of Propaganda, Equations, Presidents, and OnSets. His cumulative score in all four games have qualified Pete for the Academic Games League of America's National Tournament in Atlanta. Pete is one of a very few fourth graders to compete in all four of the games, and to qualify for Nationals in his first year is quite an accomplishment! Way to go, Pete! Congratulations!
