Spring is quickly approaching and with it comes 4th quarter! We are in the homestretch of 4th grade and we are bound to make it better than the last. We have some exciting things to look forward to in March, as well as the rest of the year! Please read below to hear about some important things happening here at CME.
- March 8th- Just Dance Assembly (we will let you know if we are performing in this after this Friday!)
- March 10th-19th- Spring Break: NO SCHOOL
- March 20th- 4th Quarter Starts
- March 27th- Peaceful Assembly at 2:15pm
Missing Work on Skyward: As we approach the end of third quarter, please be checking Skyward with your student to be sure that they don't have any missing work in the grade book. Once third quarter ends and report cards come out, those missing assignments will turn into zeros. Your students and I are working hard to stay on top of this at school, but anything you can do to help is much appreciated!
We Love to Read: We have started a new reading incentive here at school where we work as a class to read a certain number of books in order to earn a party (and to better our reading skills of course...) We started with a goal of 30 chapter books and have ALREADY met it! We will be celebrating with a movie and popcorn party this Friday afternoon. Our next goal will be to read 65 chapter books, so please be encouraging your child to read at home...even outside of those assigned minutes from me :)
Coming Up.... Just a heads up that we will be taking both the reading and math Kansas State Assessments in April. Reading will be on the 4th and 5th, while math will be on the 18th and 19th. We will begin preparing in class very soon and are ready to take on the challenge. More from me on this in our April newsletter!
