4th Grade Update

Week of January 6

Welcome Back!

We hope you and your families had a terrific break! It's nice being together again and getting into the swing of things! A couple of housekeeping notes...

  • Both classes are running low on supplies. Donating the following would be very appreciated: pencils, black ink pens, glue sticks or thin dry erase markers.

  • In Language Arts, students are creating hardback books. A letter will be going explaining the book ordering process. Every student automatically gets a FREE book if you sign and return the order form. Please look for details in your child's red folder next week.

  • WRE is having difficulty printing report cards. The third six weeks is officially over and report cards will be sent home in red folders as soon as they're printed. All grades are being applied to the fourth six weeks grading period.

  • Tutoring begins the week of January 19. Reading, writing and math tutoring will all be done during lunch. Tutoring invitation letters will be sent home next week.
