Fantastic 4th Grade
Week of February 22, 2016
Science Donation Needed
We are preparing for another cool science experiment and we are in need of a small donation. The students will be pretending that they are water molecules traveling through the water cycle. As they travel, they will create a bracelet that represents the places on Earth that water can be found.
Each class needs a gang of beads in 10 different colors. If it is less expensive to buy a big tub of mufti colors, we can sort them at school. Please contact your child’s teacher before purchasing the beads. If you have any questions, please contact your child’s teacher.
Thanks in advance for your donation and support.
Students should bring in payment for the pictures OR bring the proofs back.
They can purchase the pictures online at: mylifetouch.com or bring payments in to their teachers. If paying by check, please make sure that the checks are made payable to Lifetouch.
The deadline for ordering Spring Individual Pictures is TUESDAY, MARCH 1ST.
After Tuesday March 1st, all remaining orders need to go through Lifetouch, and there will be an additional charge.
Pictures can still be purchased online long after the deadline, but the pictures will be sent to their home address and of course there will be an additional charge.
