No Spelling test this week!

Tuesday – Career Day – Fourth graders will rotate through 12 classrooms during the day to learn about various careers from presenters who also share how they use math in their jobs.  In the upcoming weeks, students will research a career and create a presentation on that career.

Thursday – 9:40 Artsview Performance

Friday – 9:00 – JLine Dance Crew Performance

Red Ribbon Week is this week:

Monday- ” I matter so I’m drug free.” – WEAR RED

Tuesday- “Don’t snooze- stay alert and away from drugs.” = WEAR DRESS CODE APPROPRIATE PAJAMAS

Wednesday- “Make your future bright.  Don’t do drugs!” – WEAR SPORTS/COLLEGE SHIRTS AND CRAZY SOCKS

Thursday- “Soar above the rest, be drug free!”  DRESS LIKE A SUPER HERO

Friday- “Outshine drugs!”- WEAR NEON

Just a reminder:

INTERMEDIATE campus has two school parties permitted during the year.  Room mothers and teachers take care of the preparations.

We cannot allow students to bring cookies, candy, etc., and distribute in their classroom.  There are several reasons why this cannot be allowed.  It becomes a competitive situation, which can get out of hand as well as being a disruption to class instruction.  The same rule applies to invitation distribution at school or on school property.  Please do not ask teachers to make exceptions to this rule.  Since many children can get hurt feelings, or the teacher may be out and a substitute fails to pass out the invitations, and we certainly respect your right to invite whom you choose, please send all invitations through the mail, social media, or by telephone.  Our teachers do recognize students’ birthdays, as we certainly understand how important this day is to your child.  Student information lists will be completed by the teacher at the beginning of the year.  Parent permission is required before the student’s information is released.

Have a great week!
