As we begin our 4th Quarter and prepare for our FSA tests in Mathematics and ELA, students are working diligently to achieve a successful outcome. We appreciate our parents and their support with our students each day to ensure homework is completed as well as keeping up with grades in each subject area. We encourage you to make an appointment for your final parent conference with your child's teacher as soon as possible to make sure your child is on target academically. Please look out for more information regarding our upcoming Kennedy Space Center field trip on May 11th. We look forward to seeing your smiling face around our beautiful campus as a volunteer very soon.
Congratulations to our Fourth Grade writers! The students started the day of testing with a walk down the red carpet with entire school was cheering them on. We appreciate the PTA for providing McDonalds for breakfast. It was a real energy boost. We are looking ahead for the Math and Reading portion of the test. The Math is up first, the week after we return from Spring Break. We appreciate the hard work that you are doing at home. Keep up the good work!
As we countdown the days to our annual FSA ELA Writing Assessment, our students and teachers are working diligently to ensure students reach success. To celebrate our students' hard work towards this big day, we will be sending home invitations for parents to attend our Annual Writing Golden Pencil Awards Ceremony. We are also very excited about our upcoming 4th Grade Kennedy Space Center field trip. The response was overwhelming and we truly appreciate your support. We anticipate an amazing time with our students as they explore space artifacts within our universe. As we move through 3rd Quarter quickly, parent conferences are taking place daily. At this point parents should be scheduling their second conference with teachers for this school year. Feel free to contact them to make your appointment. We are always looking for volunteers, please contact the front office for more details. We hope to see your smiling faces around our beautiful school very soon.
Discover the Magic in Fourth Grade
Fourth graders finished the first quarter strong, and they have blasted into the second quarter ready to continue to learn.
Ready to Learn
In English/Language Arts (ELA), students are wrapping up opinion writing and are gearing up for informative writing. Students are reviewing concepts such as theme, cause and effect, point of view, and vocabulary in context. Please continue to have students read daily. Students are also expected to complete at least 90 minutes of i-Ready daily.
In Mathematics, we are reviewing Place Value, Subtraction with regrouping, Multiplication using the area model and break apart methods. In the coming weeks, we will begin learning the steps of Long Division and solving equations with variables.
