It's A Celebration!

This Wednesday all students who participated in either Presidents or On-Sets, will partake in a pizza party to celebrate their accomplishments. If your child participated in either of these academic games, they will not need to bring or purchase a lunch.

Middle School Orientation

All fourth grade parents are invited to a special luncheon / parent orientation to Middle School this Thursday, May 12th from 12:00 - 1:30 p.m. in the Middle School Science Lab. Parents will learn about the curriculum, activities, scheduling, and expectations of middle school, with the hope of helping the students make a smooth transition next year. We encourage you to attend this informative meeting.

Fourth Grade Challenge!

Each year, the fourth graders finish the year with a final academic challenge to identify each of the fifty states on a map and name their capitals. We have been working with the students to make memorizing these more fun, beginning with our memorization of the song, "Fifty Nifty" for the fourth grade play. We have been learning the states and capitals by region and have now covered 27 states that make up the Southeast, Northeast, and Southwest regions.
In addition to the work we are doing at school, our computer teacher, Mrs. Segura, has introduced the students to a computer game they can play to test their memory as well as help them to continue their learning. This states and capitals game, as well as many other educational sites have been saved on symbaloo, a free social bookmarking service in the cloud.
Mrs. Segura has provided all the students with the login information to access these sites. Please look for the login information in your child's take home folder this week.

NOTE : The Fourth Grade Challenge (test of the 50 states and capitals) will be given on Thursday, May 26th.
