The first FULL week!

Good evening!  This first FULL week of school is already off to a busy start.

A couple of reminders:
1. Tomorrow, Tuesday, August 27, has been modified to a 1:00 Early Release Day.  This change was made due to the extreme heat and humidity.

2. Our first spelling list of the year was sent home today.  It is a test on the student names of 4W.  The basic requirement is first names.  Students can choose to challenge themselves and memorize the spelling of the last names.  Each correct last name will earn a bonus point!

3. The fourth grade homework policy was introduced to the students today!  Please ask your child about the homework warning system and how they can "redeem" themselves.  This will be explained in detail to parents during Open House.

Have a great night!  See you tomorrow.

Back to school!

Welcome back to 4th grade in 4W! Today was the first day of school, and I had a wonderful time meeting all of my new students.  We learned a lot about each other, and spent some time reviewing the routines and procedures in our classroom.  I am really looking forward to the year ahead.

Tomorrow, we have the chance to earn our first marble if the ENTIRE class returns their first homework assignment of the year!  Tonight's homework was to share a letter about fourth grade with your family.  The last page of the packet should be returned tomorrow--with a signature from each student and his or her parent.

I hope that you are all as excited about this year as I am!  See you tomorrow.
