We have reached the halfway point in the year! Report cards will go home on Friday. We begin another AR period which will go until March 27. Students will need to STAR test again before new AR goals can be set. In the meantime, students can read at their most recent level and take AR tests toward new goal, until the new goals are set. This should happen within the next week or two.
Students have been busy working on their biome reports both at home and at school. Please remember that biome reports and projects are due on Friday. This is my favorite day of the school year as I love seeing the creativity and pride the kids show when sharing their finished masterpieces!
In math, we are working on multiplication facts. Our chapter 5 test will be on Thursday. Please make sure you are practicing DAILY with your child to help them learn their times tables. It is the key to success in fourth grade and beyond
We are learning about the sacraments and the use of sacramentals. I am asking students to bring a sacramental from home to share on Thursday. Sacramentals may include rosaries, crucifixes, bibles, scapulars, baptismal candles or gowns, religious statues or medals, to name a few. It should be something that has a special meaning for your child or your family. If you don’t have any such items, please let me know.
We have some exciting events coming soon; the 100th Day of School, Catholic Schools Week and Read Across America Week. Look for details to come home soon.
Have a great week!
