As we move into the month of October, we also finish our first grading period of the school year. It is hard to believe that we are already thinking about report cards! Very soon you will be receiving information from me regarding our first parent/teacher conference. Please watch for a note to come home with your child so that we may meet at a time that works with your schedule.
Also this month, your child will need to turn in his/her final payment for the St. Augustine field trip. Final payments are due on Thursday, October 16th. We are looking forward to this trip and making our social studies lessons come alive!
Lastly, Book-O-Ween is scheduled for Friday, October 31st. In fourth grade we complete our Puzzle Piece Project in coordination with this event. Students have already received information about the project, and the PDF version can be found in the documents section at the bottom of this page. Please be sure that your child observes the following due dates: approval for books on October 3rd, rough draft of plot events by October 24th, and final project due on October 31st. This is a great opportunity for your child to revisit plot elements and to learn about taking responsibility for a long-term project. Thank you for all of your help in teaching these important lessons!
As always, if you have any questions, comments, or concerns feel free to email me at any time. I am looking forward to another month with your precious children!
