Dear 4th Grade Families,
Students and staff at will participate in Unity Day on October 30, as part of National Bullying Prevention Month. Unity Day’s goal is to unite as a school to bring awareness of bullying prevention. It’s a day where everyone can send one large ORANGE message of support, hope, and unity to show that they are united against bullying and unified for kindness, acceptance, inclusion and friendship.
In Room 19 we'll also be having a low-key harvest celebration with a movie, math game, and some snacks!
Our goal this week: Record scientific observations accurately.
Some items in this Monday's take-home folder:
Sign and return: Weekly update (blue), Reading log (in binders), math tests (Bernardo math)
Review and keep at home: Math practice pages, math fact tests, spooky simile rough drafts, art, Create-a-Country rough drafts, draft class directory (new version coming next week to add back in the student whose entry disappeared), book fair save-the-date, lighthouse art, social studies questions
