Spring brings warmer temperatures, more daylight hours and a lot of activities for students. It also begins our spring testing. NWEA and M-Step will begin shortly after spring break is finished. It is important that students get plenty of sleep and eat well to keep up their stamina during this time. Students feel stress about the testing and I will try to keep that from becoming a focus. I want them to do their best but not feel overwhelmed. I will send home a list of our testing days on April 9th.
We have completed our unit on electricity and renewable energy. We will be doing our simple machines unit in April. I am looking forward to a lot of hands on opportunities to demonstrate simple machines.
I always look forward to conferences and getting the opportunity to share with you about the goals your child is reaching. The class is working hard and it shows! I can’t believe we are in the last quarter of your child’s 4th grade year!!
Please be sure to watch for notes and comments on your child’s weekly reports to keep up with all the latest news and happenings as we draw closer to the end of the 2017/2018 school year.
If you have any questions or concerns, please call me at ext. 14.
