Stern/Taylor Class News!

4th Grade~~River Place Elementary~~January 21, 2014

Students of the week will present their All About Me poster, that they made at school, to the class on Monday and on Friday may bring in a favorite item to share, read from a favorite book, or display a talent to the class.

Important Information!!!

News From the Nurse

There is a student at school that has medical issues, which compromises the immune system. For the safety of the student, the teacher and school nurse need to be aware of any illness with a high fever and particularly influenza, chicken pox and Fifth's disease. Exposure to chicken pox could be life threatening.


While it is impossible to keep the classroom free of illness, early notification of illness and disease will ensure we can be proactive in the health care needs of the student.

This is a good time to reinforce with your child the importance of a good hand washing technique and to cover a cough and sneeze.


If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me on (512} 570 6927

Class Blogs!

Students can access their homeroom's class blog from home. The blog gives them an opportunity to practice writing and communication skills in an ever expanding digital world. We have discussed the importance of students using their best "netiquette"! Manners online are just as important as in person. "Treat others how you want to be treated!"
