Mark your calendars, 4th grade is headed to Austin! The cost of the trip is $75 this year (we had some of the cost offset by a generous donation). Please be mindful of the dates money is due. We have a deadline for payment with our tour company.

Big picture
We are using Words Their Way spelling program this year. We have assessed each student and placed them in a color group based on their current spelling ability. These groups will be very fluid, and students may move around from one group to the next. Our goal is to develop GREAT spellers in 4th grade. Your student will be given their list every Monday and a Spelling Test will be given every Friday.
