4th Grade MOSAIC

Caring Through Sharing Service Project

Don't forget to send in money for fleece for our February Service Project. We are accepting money up until Feb. 6th. The 4th grade teachers will then go out and purchase fleece with the money collected. We are still looking for volunteers to help prepare the blankets on Feb. 12th in the morning. Please let me know if you can volunteer. Thank you for your help in advance.

Hard Work and Effort!

Continuous effort, not strength or intelligence is the key to unlocking our potential.

-Winston Churchill

This week we have discussed effort and hard work in depth! Some of our work has been lacking in effort and we are turning in projects with spelling errors, capitalization errors, and with the bare minimum to get by. After grading a few projects this week, I have come back to the class with some strong examples and pointed out the difference between strong effort and weak effort. I have then given the students a chance to fix their projects so that they reflect strong effort. We have discussed the importance of showing MOSAIC quality work on a daily basis. Please encourage your child in this area and help support them. Thanks for your constant support!
