Growing with STEM in Fourth Grade

This Week in Fourth Grade

Thank you to all of you who helped put together our Valentine's Day party for our Scholars. We are grateful to have so many parents who are willing to take time from their busy schedule to help make our parties fun.

Don't forget that this week we will be releasing early for our Spring Scholar-Led Conferences.

If you haven't already done so, please sign up . You will sign up for only one time and plan to attend with your scholar. There will be five conferences during each time slot. Plan for your conference to last from 15-20 min. and be prepared to listen to your scholar tell you about their progress and discuss their goals. If you have any concerns that you would like to discuss without your scholar present then we ask that you please schedule a conference during our regular conference period. We look forward to seeing you soon.

Fifth Grade Sky Ranch Fundraising

Parents, we will need you soon! Each fall our Fifth Graders take a great trip to Sky Ranch. Due to the large expense of such a trip, the fifth grade students are left to complete a large amount of fundraising. In order to reduce the burden of the fundraising in the fall, typically the scholars begin to raise the money for the fall trip in the spring. Please watch for volunteer sign-ups.
