February 8th, 2016
We hope that you all enjoyed the Super Bowl tonight! I'm sure that we'll all be exhausted tomorrow, but that's OK ... only 1 week to Winter Break.
CORRECTION: We have to change our Valentine's Day party times. Please look at the times for each classroom at the end of this newsletter.
Please send in 1 gallon milk jugs - clean and dry, no tops needed - for a Valentine's project. We still need about 20. Thank you!
Please ask your child if they are running out of supplies in their desk! Many students are running out of pencils, dry erase markers, pencil top erasers, highlighters, and colored pencils. Also some students need a new pencil bag. Thank you!

4th grade Historians!
We are now going to examine many of the events that lead us to the American Revolution. As we learn about these events, we will talk about becoming historians and what an historian must focus on when researching in order to find out all of the important information that is necessary to understand history: who, where, when and what happened! Very soon, each child will pick an event leading to the war to research!
