Dear Fourth Grade Families,
Congratulations to Sullivan and Lindsay for being selected as our Class Representatives for Student Council! These two hard working and responsible students will make fine officers!
The fourth graders met their second grade Buddies from Mrs. Ingle’s class for the first time this month. To get to know each other, they conducted interviews. Edna’s Classroom Buddies program is a great way to promote school community and to teach leadership skills. From now on, we will be meeting with our Buddies approximately once a month.
This upcoming Wednesday, October 31st is our Halloween parade and party. The Halloween parade will take place at 8:50am on the blacktop and around the turf. The fourth graders can wear their costumes to school and change after the parade. Please remember to keep the school costumes on the friendlier side and that accessories like toy weapons are not allowed at school. The party will take place in the classroom following the parade from approximately 9:15 until 10:00. Thank you to our Room Parents, Shannon Gillmore and Sam Fazio, for setting up a Sign-up Genius for the party and thank you to all the parents who contributed something to the party!
Parent-Teacher Conferences have been scheduled, and by now you should have received an email with the date and time of yours. If you are unable to make it at your scheduled time, please let me know right away. During the two weeks of conferences, November 5th through November 16th, students will be released at 1:55pm.
This year, I will be giving the fourth graders the opportunity to practice their keyboarding skills through the use of the web-based program called Keyboarding Without Tears. If students have access to a computer and the Internet at home, they can access their keyboarding accounts from there. Last weekend, I emailed you a link to the Keyboarding Without Tears site. If you didn’t receive it, please let me know.
There is no school on Monday, November 12th in observance of Veterans’ Day.
