We are pretty excited about the upcoming Halloween festivities, planned for Monday, October 31. Please see the document below for information about what we still need for the celebration! A HUGE thank you to families that have already volunteered their time/materials!

Fourth Grade Halloween Party

When: Monday, October 31, 2016

Where: Ms. Jacobson’s room

Time: 1:00-2:20pm

Our class will play some Halloween games, make a medieval craft and enjoy some treats during our Halloween party!

I would like to have 1 more parent volunteers from 12:45 – 2:20 to help with set-up, serve the food, assist the students, and help clean up.

Please let me know (sjacobson@stcroixprep.org) if you are able to donate one of the food items below or would like to help with the activities.

o Slices of apples tossed with cinnamon and sugar (and some plain with a little lemon juice to keep them from turning brown) An ice cream pail-ful works well.

o Lemonade (1 gallon)

o Paper Cups

o 4 mini pumpkins

Thank you for making this a fun event for the students!

If your child plans to dress up on Monday, October 31 please remind them to bring a paragraph explaining the book character or historical figure that they are dressed as. Also, a friendly reminder to leave any weapons that may be a part of the costume at home. Thank you!

Students should have received a purple packet with the No Excuse Words for them to study. The spelling homework for this list is slightly different-- students should write sentences that use each word correctly in them. For the test, I will say the word and use it in a sentence. Students will need to ascertain which form of the word is correct and spell it based only on the sentence that I give.

The homework is due on Friday, October 28. We will also have the No Excuse Words Spelling Test on this day!

40 Book Challenge Update

Students should be aiming for the goal of finishing 10 books this quarter. I will be looking at their neon green trackers (the school copy) on the last day of the quarter-- Thursday, November 3rd. Completion of the 10 books (at their level) for the quarter as well as the monthly book reports, and reading calendars that they complete will be a part of their reading grade.

Synergy/Parent Vue

Synergy should be ready for you to view! Thank you for your endless amounts of patience in this manner! Mrs. Sherman and I have worked really hard to keep students aware of any missing assignments that they might have and have tried our best to keep you in the know about any missing work. You should be able to view your students assignments on ParentVue.

SCPA Archery!
