Dear 4th Grade Families,
Pink Out on Friday: wear as much pink as possible to promote breast cancer awareness!
Our goal this week: "Finish my mystery book report and turn it in by Thursday."
Some items in this Monday's take-home folder:
Sign and return: Weekly Update, Reading Log (in binders), Math Test (Larson and Bernardo math classes)
Review and keep at home: Math fact tests, Math practice pages (varies by walk-to-math class), bio collages, ants, Storyworks pages
Please Vote! Ballots must be postmarked by November 4th! Later this year, we'll be studying civics and government in social studies. Please take this opportunity to talk about voting with your child - some of the key concepts we'll be discussing are the responsibility of citizens to be informed (show them your voter's pamphlet!) and to take part in our democracy by voting.
DRAFT Conference Schedule: Please check your time on the conference schedule attached to this week's email, and let me know if you need any changes! If you have not yet scheduled a time, let me know which of the empty conference times will work for you. Thank you! The mystery word is: simile
October, November, and December volunteer calendars: are attached to this week's email. Please let me know if you need any adjustments or can't be here on your day. Thanks again for all you do to support our class's learning - we couldn't do it without you!!!

Mystery Book Report: Mystery books and packets should be coming back and forth to school every day. Time is occasionally given in class for this work, and students miss out when they forget their book or packet! This is primarily an at-home project - please check in with your child on their progress. Finished reports are due this Thursday and will be shared in small groups on Friday!
Attendance Hotline: If your child will be missing school or tardy for any reason, please be sure to call the attendance hotline: 425-831-4108 Due to changes in the district's policy, if a student is absent and the attendance line has not been called, our school secretaries are required to call all the emergency contact numbers in that student's file until they can find a reason for the absence. Please call the attendance line!
