Week of January 14 to January 18
Dear Fourth Grade Families,
Welcome back everyone! We really hit the ground running, and your children have definitely risen to the occasion. It’s amazing how they all look taller after 2 weeks’ absence.
As you know the quarter ends next Friday, which is also Market Day and 11:30 dismissal. We have no school on Monday, the 21st so it already feels like another break is upon us.
Next week the students will write a 5-paragraph essay that involves them writing about the 3 places they would take a family member or friend in California, if they had never been to our lovely state before. It would be great if you could talk to them this weekend about 3 places that have some special meaning to them, so they will have some idea as to where to begin. They can choose amusement parks, a special city, state parks, sporting events, museums, theatres, etc. They will write an introduction paragraph, a paragraph describing each place/attraction and a closing paragraph. Due to the scope of this assignment, there will be no spelling or vocabulary words next week.
Finally, please be sure to return your Riley’s Farm permission slip and $27 by next Thursday, the 17th, and indicate whether or not you would like to join us as a chaperone on this trip. Have a fantastic weekend!
Mrs. Hart and Mrs. Gaul
Your Fourth Grade Team
