  • We had a great first full week of school!  Students are learning routines and CHAMPS for classes and doing a great job so far.
  • Remember that this Tuesday, August 29 is Parent Orientation.  It will be from 6 pm-7 pm.  Parents will all meet in the cafeteria with Mrs. Rock and then break off into grade level meetings.  This will be an important informational session for 4th graders so please try to attend!
  • If you haven’t yet signed up for REMIND for all three classes, please do that.  It is a quick and easy way to stay in touch with teachers.
  • Binders with graded papers come home every Wednesday.  Please check these and sign the yellow paper in the binder.  DO NOT take out the papers- we will send those home at the end of the 9 weeks.

Next Tuesday, March 28 we will be taking the 4th grade Writing STAAR test.  The students have worked so hard this year!  This week we will have “Boot Camp”. Students will be engaged in some fun practice activities to review the writing process and to review the rules for revising and editing a passage.  Each day, Tuesday-Friday, we will have a “theme”:

TUESDAY- wear boots (cowboy, rain, snow, etc) to show we will “Stomp the STAAR!”

WEDNESDAY- wear sunglasses to show “We are so BRIGHT!”

THURSDAY- wear a hat to show that we will “Blow the top off of the STAAR!”

FRIDAY-  wear camo clothes to show that the STAAR can’t hide from us!

We will only wear sunglasses and hats in Mrs. Clift’s class so not to disturb their other classes.  

Homework will come home today and is due Thursday, and the Spelling test will be Thursday as well.  We will not have Spelling words or homework next week.

Have a great week!
