Another week has flown by in fourth grade! I can't believe we are approaching Valentine’s Day! A list went home in the Tuesday folders of each student in our class so that your child will be able to have a valentine for each of their classmates. They will also need to create a valentine box to receive all their sweet treats and notes! I have found having a large opening in their box is easiest for the delivery of goodies! They can be as creative as they like, just be sure their name is visible on their design.
Please ask your child about this writing mnemonic: Friends were playing educational division, helping tiny snail -ly.
I am in need of prizes that are awarded for table points. Dollar store items work great. Thank you in advance.
A huge thank you to all the parents who contributed to the set up, clean up and donation of food for our "Soup"er Bowl Friday Feast. It was all so delicious! These days are definitely ones we all look forward to!
Morning practices begin next week for the upcomming musical "Go West." The rehearsal schedule was attached to your child's script/part from Mrs.Martin. They will need to have all parts memorized for their rehearsal. Thank You! All of our class (but one... you know who you are :) ) has rehearsal Monday morning beginning at 7:20 sharp!
From the Counselor...
February is here--the month when we celebrate Valentine's Day AND a new Character Word of the Month! Our character word for February is FRIENDSHIP. A good friend listens. A good friend is loyal. A good friend accepts you for who you are and always treats you with respect. In February, if your teacher sees you being a good friend, 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!
