4th Grade – Whitcher

October Newsletter!

Happy fall!   Remember to study for spelling tests.  Homework is rarely given, so students should have plenty of time to study.  Spelling tests are every Friday.  Planners are sent home every night to be signed by a parent, and then brought back the next day.  It is the student’s responsibility to get their planner signed every night.  We have started learning states and capitals for our Nifty Fifty Test.  Be studying the location of all 50 states and their capitals.  Knowing basic math facts is a huge key to being successful in math.  Practice addition, subtraction, and multiplication math facts at home with flash cards. Don’t forget to read every night! Find a good chapter book you can read all the way through and curl up on these chilly fall nights.  The more you read the better reader you will become!

Halloween: October 30th will be a half day, and no school October 31st.  Students may dress up on the 30th in their Halloween costumes.  Please make sure they are school appropriate (no masks, blood, etc.).  Trunk or Treat will also take place.  Sign up, bring your car, and decorate your trunk! Prize awarded to the most festive car.  Class party to follow.
