News From Ms. Kramer's 4th Grade Class

It's not too late to sign up for parent/teacher conferences!

Second semester parent/teacher conferences will be held all day on Friday, February 5. These conferences are optional and NOT mandatory. If you would like to meet with me in regards to your student, please email me with a time of day that would work best for you.


Conferences are generally 20 minutes long, but if more time is necessary that's not a problem! We can schedule a follow-up meeting at the end of 20 minutes.


Please arrive to conferences a few minutes early; and if you have any specific items you would like to address, it would be helpful if you could please send me a note or shoot me an email next week BEFORE we meet.

Valentine's Day

We will be celebrating Valentine's Day with a party on Friday, February 12 from 2:15-2:45 PM. Students are encouraged to create a box to hold their valentines, or bring in a decorated paper bag. I will have paper bags at school if your student forgets or chooses not to make anything.


We currently have 22 students rostered in our classroom, so please be sure that if your student is bringing valentines that they bring enough for everyone in class. I will be sending home a roster with everyone's name on in the upcoming weeks.


If you are in need of valentines for your student, please email me as soon as possible so I can make necessary arrangements. I am more than happy to help out. :)

Reading at Home

In addition to weekly math homework and the weekly spelling contract, it is important that your student is reading at least 20 minutes a night. This could be in the form of a video game manual, a magazine, book, newspaper article, etc. I encourage you to have your student read aloud to a younger sibling, share what they are reading at the dinner table, and/or listen to them read before going to bed. This will help build your student's comprehension, fluency, and confidence as a reader.
