No Friday Folders This Week

Library Books

I just found out this week that all library books are due back by May 10th. The kids will then have to rely on the books in our classroom library and/or a local library that they visit.

We need more Genesee Country Museum chaperones! Please consider joining us!

Field Trips

On Tuesday, May 22nd the entire 4th grade will be traveling to Genesee Country Village & Museum. Student admission is $7 and adult chaperones are $11. Please contact me ASAP at closege@canandaiguaschools.org if you need financial assistance for your child's admission. Parents who are joining us will need to meet us there. Kids have to ride the bus to the field trip site, but can leave the museum with you if proper permission slips are returned prior to the field trip date. Please return the permission slip and money by Friday, May 18th. The more chaperones, the better!

We'll be visiting Aqueduct Park in Palmyra on June 1st. Our class will be going with Mrs. Gleason's class. We'll leave school around 9:15 and arrive at the park around 9:45. This is a rain or shine event. We'll start our day at the park and watch how the lock operates. Then we'll all walk the trail that goes along part of the original Erie Canal that takes us into the village of Palmyra. At that point, we'll visit the museums. The trip will end with lunch. The buses will pick us up at the museums around 1:15. This trip is free through a grant.

Monday, June 18th will be our grade level trip to Onanda. The same procedures apply to this trip. Kids have to ride the bus to the park, but can be dismissed from the park with parents if appropriate paperwork is complete prior to the field trip to date. I'll let you know about the cost as we get closer to the trip date.

I'll keep this information in the newsletter for the next few weeks. Please check out the google form below. You only need to fill it out if you would like to chaperone.

Swimming & Music Ensembles

Kids will need swimsuits on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.

Instruments on Tuesday for lessons and Wednesday for band/orchestra.


Mrs. Close’s Class ~ We are almost halfway through Module 7. In this module, students will sharpen their skills in measurement as they relate multiplication to the conversion of measurement units. Today, the student had to answer a few questions regarding odd and even numbers? When would it be ideal to have even numbers of people or things? When would it be better to have odd numbers? I am looking forward to reading their responses!

Mr. Hart's Class ~ Woo Hoo, we are finished with the state math test! I believe that all of the kids were prepared for the task and am sure that they all did a terrific job. Prior to the state math test we finished Module 5. The graded tests came home this past Tuesday. Today we started Module 6. This module teaches the kids about decimal fractions. We will explore tenths and hundredths as well as compare, and add the decimals.
