In a couple of weeks our PTO will be hosting a holiday shop for the kids at Price. The purpose of the shop is for students to be able to buy gifts for family members at a very inexpensive price. This is completely optional. A flyer will be sent home on Monday with more information. Our class will be visiting the holiday shop on Tuesday, December 15.

We are learning about force and motion!

Middle of the Year Writing Benchmark

Friday, December 18 will be a fun day in 4th Grade! We will be doing our middle of the year benchmark writing assessment. The kids will have most of the day to complete a fictional narrative, going through all the steps of the writing process (brainstorm, rough draft, revise, edit, and publish.) This is always a fun, laid back day. I encourage the kids to dress comfortably that day. I'm excited to see how far we have come as writers so far this year!

Have any old board games laying around?

Do you have any board games that never get played or are missing pieces? We would love to have them! I am looking to repurpose some old board games into games for math stations. We could use any boards or game pieces you don't want. Please do not buy new games for this!

Holiday Spirit Days

Tuesday, December 15-Christmas Character Day

  • This is a STUCrew sponsored day: students can pay 25 cents to participate by dressing up as their favorite Christmas character (a snowman, Santa, an elf, etc.). Money raised will go to building PBIS (our building behavior system) celebrations.

District Parent Survey

Republic School District invites parents to complete the short survey found at the link below in regards to communication efforts. Our hope is to gather your feedback which will allow us to adjust our communication methods according to your needs as a parent. It is our goal to effectively and efficiently provide you with the information you need about Republic School District. The survey will be open November 12-December 4. It is 32 questions and should take approximately 10 minutes. Thank you in advance!


Our attendance last week was 97.4%. Our weekly goal is 95.8%.
