4C News

Mrs. Close’s Class – We have jumped right into Module #1. One major focus of this year will be on showing work neatly and explaining answers. "I found the answer" will no longer suffice as an explanation. The kids have reviewed place value. You’ll find corrected exit tickets and homework assignments in your child’s Friday Folder. Exit tickets can always be corrected to earn back a portion of the points that were lost. Students need to make corrections on a separate sheet of paper. Original answers should not be erased or changed. Corrections should be stapled to original assignment and then handed in to me. The kids are aware of this process. They have even taken their first quiz. Those will come home in next week's folder. The kids are working hard - we’re off to a great start!

Student Government

Three 4C students campaigned to be elected as our Student Government Classroom Representative. I'm so proud of all of the students for taking the risk! I'm proud to report that Logan will be our representative and Glacier will be the alternate.

Special Opportunities


On Monday, Mrs. Coleates presented information to the students regarding the Geography Bee. Not one student has expressed an interest. Please see the embedded flyer for more information.


Another extra opportunity is the Spelling Bee. Mrs. Coleates will be sharing information regarding this competition during the coming week.

Book Orders

The first orders will come home Monday! You can get a head start by checking out the selection online at scholastic.com. Our class code is GY26J.


Our first field trip is a week from today! I will be picking the t-shirts up on Wednesday so we'll have them for our trip. Please watch the weather closely so you know how your child should dress. Most of the day will be spent indoors. Also, all students will need to bring a lunch!

I chose out of a hat.....one adult from the Davis family and one adult from the Lofton family are invited to join us. Adult chaperones do have to pay $6 admission. That can be sent in before the trip or paid upon arrival. Thanks for meeting us at Ganondagan! I apologize to the families who weren't chosen. There will be more opportunities!


  • Instrument lessons will take place Wednesday.
  • Chorus will meet for the first time at 2:25 on Thursday!
  • Tuesday & Thursday will be PE days - don't forget sneakers!
