SNACK-TIME REQUESTS

Please help your child choose morning snacks that are conducive to eating and working at the same time. We kindly request that students bring only one snack for the morning and that it be simple to eat while reading, writing and working. We have so much learn in fourth grade! Thank you in advance for your help!

ACCESS TO THE STUDENT LEARNING HUB

The Student Learning Hub offers links to curriculum-related resources. For example, you can view state standards for all subjects; characteristics of reading genres; and videos that explain how math concepts are taught in the district. Your child's homeroom teacher has already sent a click sheet that walks you through the login process. Please let us know if you have questions.
