How can it possible be the last week of fourth grade already?? The year has flown by, and I have so enjoyed working with all of your children. During our final week we have many fun events planned. We will be writing letters of advice to next year's fourth graders and wrapping up our animal projects. We will also be working on a fun engineering project during which we will create containers to put an egg in with the goal of it not breaking when dropped from 6 feet. If an egg survives the 6 foot drop, we try it off the roof! On Tuesday we will be doing some cleaning and organizing in our room, and in the afternoon we will have a fourth grade movie party in which the kids can choose which room/movie they would like to attend. Students may bring a snack/drink for this. The only requirement is that drinks have a screw on top as opposed to cans to help cut down on spills. On Wednesday we will have our zoo trip and Thursday is our picnic day (information below).

I hope you all enjoy the summer break, and I look forward to seeing some of these students again as I make the move to fifth grade teaching with Mrs. Ilkka!

 Important News and Announcements

ZOO TRIP: If your child ordered a school lunch, they will pick it up in the morning, otherwise, remember to send a bag lunch with your child. They will be responsible for carrying it, so if it is in a disposable container, they can throw it away when they finish eating. Remember to wear sunscreen and comfortable shoes. Should be a great day at the zoo!

Fourth grade picnic day: will be on the last day of school: Thursday, May 24. We will be walking to Foundry Hill Park at around 11:00 and will return at about 3:30. Students who ordered school lunch will pick it up before we leave, if not, remember to bring a bag lunch. They may also bring any outdoor gear such as jump ropes, frisbees, soccer balls, footballs, etc (no electronics), but whatever they choose to bring, they will be responsible for transporting it to and from the park. Please make sure your child dresses appropriately for the weather including sunscreen and comfortable shoes. 


  CLASS MISSION STATEMENT (as written by our class on the first day of school):

I am an INDEPENDENT student. I will FOLLOW DIRECTIONS, LISTEN, and ASK QUESTIONS. I am ORGANIZED, RESPONSIBLE, and RESPECTFUL.  I am KIND, and I will follow the GOLDEN RULE. It will be a PHENONMENAL fourth grade year!
