4th Grade Science Night!
Science Night “Bolder Boulders” is coming up this Wednesday, January 13th, from 6:30-8:00 pm. Parent-child teams are invited to come and learn all about the different properties of rocks and minerals. We are lucky to have a guest from the Vista Gem Society joining us that night who will have an additional fun activity for the kids.
If you have any questions or are able to help, email Lisa Golden firstname.lastname@example.org .
Your child will be learning the recorder this year in music. We ask for donations to help cover the cost of the books and recorders. If you already have a recorder, the cost for a book is $3.95. If you need both a recorder and book, the cost is $7.50. A blue flyer will be coming home today. Please send in cash or checks, payable to EUSD, by this Friday.
Remember to have your child wear their red ECC shirt on Tuesdays.

Spelling/Root Study: One is the Loneliest Number. For the next few weeks we will continue to focus on root words, their meaning, origin, application, and spelling. There will be ten words on this list. You child may also choose to participate in the challenge list. This is open to any student who wants to put in extra effort. The test will be on Friday, as usual. Students will practice words through Spelling City and a word study sheet. This sheet is due on Thursday. At the end of the root study unit we will have a Spelling Bee. The word lists and activities are accessed through Spelling City.
