3rd & 4th Grade News

Mar. 13, 2018


For Bible we are reading about the 10 Lepers and what it means to thank Jesus for everything.  We also read about Jehoshaphat and how we need to praise God in all things.  In Science, we are learning about rocks and fossils.  We’ve learned about earthquakes, volcanoes and other natural disasters.  In Social Studies we are into our Southwest unit and learning about that region now.  We will be focusing on the states in that region this week and what the land is like, and then adding those pieces to our new Lap Books.  There is a spelling test this Friday.


Box Tops:

Please save those Box Tops and turn them into the office.  Our 3rd & 4th grade classes earn money that we use on our big Mother’s Day Tea and Father’s Day Picnic.  We NEED as many as we can get turned in please.  We aren’t getting as many this year as we have in the past.


Parent-Teacher Conferences:

Conferences start this Wednesday and Thursday.  Remember it’s a 12:30 release on Wednesday and NO SCHOOL on Thursday.  Please remember we ONLY schedule 15 min. slots so if you are running late, we will need to shorten your conference so we can keep all other teachers with siblings on schedule.  Thank you for being on time and understanding.

Beach Book Reading Day:

Our big Beach Book Reading Day is next Thursday, March 22!  Our classrooms will become beaches where we will spend the entire day doing various reading activities.  Students are encouraged to bring a beach towel, sunglasses, beach hat, and/or their favorite book to read (with their name written on the inside).  Please wear TENNIS SHOES!  We still have PE this day.  We will still go across the street for lunch so hot lunch is still available.


Calendar Change:

Please take note that there will NOT BE SCHOOL on Thursday, April 26 and Friday, April 27 due to teacher trainings that we have to attend. J  Thank you.
