Fourth Grade News

Week of January 19 - 22, 2016

Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday

We hope you all had a great long weekend and were able to join in some of the festivities taking place around our city in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. We couldn't have asked for better weather to honor the life of such a great man.

Class Picture and Retakes are this Wednesday!

Just a reminder that our class photo and any retakes of individual photos will be taken this Wednesday morning, so please get your child to school on time to ensure he / she is in the class photo. If you would like to order a class photo, please return the envelope sent home last week, along with a check for $14.00 made payable to Raymar Photography. If you've misplaced the envelope, just send in a check in any envelope with your child's name, grade, and phone number. Photos must be ordered in advance!

4th Grade Play Practice is Underway!

The annual fourth grade play practice is now underway! The students have been assigned their part(s) and have each been given a script. In keeping with our social studies curriculum this year, our play is appropriately called, The American Revolution.
It has been a tradition at St. George's to keep the title of the fourth grade play a secret from the rest of the school community, so please help us continue this tradition by not discussing it with anyone outside fourth grade. Please ask your child about their part in the play. As we get further along in our practice, we will be asking for help in making this year's performance a great success. Thank you in advance for your support.

Mother / Son Breakfast is this Friday!

This Friday, Jan. 22nd, all 1st - 4th grade moms and their sons are invited to the annual Mother / Son Breakfast at 7:30 a.m. in the gym. It is guaranteed to be a great time for the boys and their moms, to eat and visit with the rest of the lower school family. Hope to see you there!

Open House this Thursday - Dress Uniform Required!

St. George's will be hosting an Open House this Thursday, Jan. 21st from 9:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. Students are required to wear their dress uniform that day! Thank you!

Pennies for Patients Dress Down Day this Friday!

This Friday, we will have a $2.00 dress down day to help support our 7th graders' service project to raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. All money raised will go to help fund research to find a cure for pediatric blood cancers. We are very happy to support this organization which helped one of our own seventh graders who is a leukemia survivor himself.

The Dads' Club is sponsoring our annual Family Fun Night this Saturday at Rock 'N Bowl from 4:30 - 7:00 p.m. This fun-filled family event is open to all members of the family and promises to be an afternoon / evening full of fun. Please see The Flame for information on purchasing tickets.
