NEW SEMESTER = NEW ROUTINES


We will be starting some new routines in 4th grade. Keep an eye out for weekly current events and reading assignments to be completed at home. These assignments are intended to replace the 20 minutes of reading time twice a week, when it works for your family, and are due on Friday. The first reading assignment will come home today and should be turned in by Friday. The Current Event for this week will be completed in school and will come home as an assignment next week.
