Hello Fourth Grade Families,
Thank you to all who visited our Wax Museum! The students did wonderful work, and having an appreciative audience was a fantastic finale to the project!
Pictures of all of the students with their projects can be found here. (Password reminder in this week's email)
Students brought home a blank white envelope in last week's take-home folder. Please return this envelope addressed to your student (at your home address) with a postage stamp no later than Tuesday, June 5 (tomorrow). Thank you!! (If you have extra stamps, and would like to donate one to a 4th grader, please send them in. Thanks)

As a part of the health curriculum, the fourth grade has a short presentation on human growth and development. Please read the attached letter. All students will view their gender specific video on, Thursday, June 7.
There will be an opportunity for parent viewing of the videos on:
Tues, June 5 8:30 am (girl: Room 4) and 3:30 pm (girl: Room 18)
Wed, June 6 8:30 am (boy: Room 4) and 3:30 pm (boy: Room 18)
All screenings are open to all parents/guardians regardless of homeroom teacher. Last year many parents found it helpful to watch the video so that they could discuss the content with their children at home. We encourage you to come and watch the approximately 20-minute video.
Volunteer Opportunities: 6/6: Field Day volunteers needed: see the attached flyer. Our class volunteer calendar: http://signup.com/go/bKMtZZx Thanks, again, for all you do to support children, teachers and learning!

Don’t be surprised if they start reading labels and asking for more fruits and veggies this week and next! The mystery word is protein. : )
Social Studies: Our study of Government and Civics learning targets includes:
