Many thanks again for the thoughtful gifts, edibles and holiday well-wishes.
Have a wonderful break, and a safe and happy New Year!
During our in-house Toymaker field trip, students built their own vehicles using the tools and materials provided, then used the investigative process to test which length of launching ruler would send their vehicles the longest distance. Hooray for science!
Happy Holidays, Fourth Grade Families!
I'm wishing everyone a holiday break filled with relaxation, quality time, and enjoyable activities!

At-Home Reading: Students should be reading 20 minutes a night. Monthly reading logs should stay in students' binders, and will be checked every Tuesday. Two nights a week students may use Lexia as their 20 minutes of reading.
