It's been another great week in fourth grade!
Can you believe we're talking about 5th grade already?! Please fill out and return the yellow CCE Enrollment Form no later than April 3rd. These forms enable CCE to staff accurately for the upcoming school year. I cannot turn them in until we have a full class set. Thank you in advance for turning them in quickly!
Next week, we will read with our First Grade Buddies on Friday, April 7th. Students are required to bring books to read to our buddies. This is an excellent opportunity for our fourth graders to show responsibility.
From the Counselor:
This month we will focus on HONESTY. Honesty means that you tell the truth. At school, if you forget your homework, then just tell your teacher the truth! At home, if you are mean to your brother or sister, then OWN IT and admit that you made a mistake. In April, if your teacher sees you being HONEST, then you will get a sticker to wear all day so that other students will know that you demonstrated our Character Word of the Month!
I am in need to small prizes for our prize box. Pencils, erasers, pencil sharpeners, seasonal items work great. Thank you in advance for supporting our classroom!
I need a simple sewing project done for our class. If you can help, I would greatly appreciate it!
Students will have a preview day next Friday, April 7. Sales will be Monday, April 10 – Thursday, April 13, 7:30 am – 3:30 pm. Book fair will be open LATE on Tuesday until 6:00 PM

Pig in a Wig author, Emma Virjan, will be in our cafeteria at 3:00 pm on Tuesday, April 11. All Canyon Creek families are welcome as are incoming kindergarten families! Her books are geared towards younger students, but older students may enjoy the reading and illustrating demonstration. A pink form was sent home on Tuesday for students wanting to reserve a book to be signed. A limited number will also be available at the book fair.
