4th Grade – Bottema

April Newsletter

The school year is moving right along.  We are now in the 4th quarter.  We are going to be taking our NWEA Spring testing when we come back from spring break.  This will help us understand how much each student has grown throughout 4th grade.  We look forward to an exciting month!

 NWEA/M-STEP Testing: Beginning April 10th all students will be taking the final NWEA testing for the year.  We ask that you please bring your child to school on time and ready to learn.  Make sure they have a good breakfast and are well rested during this time.  We are excited for our students to show us what they know!

Reading Tips

  • Read Bedtime Stories
  • Visit your local library
  • Read a recipe and cook something with your child (this is also a good way to reinforce fractions too)
  • Have your child read you the grocery list when shopping
  • Make sure reading material is at an appropriate level – if your child needs help with more than 5 words on a single page the book is too hard for them.
  • Have books and magazines available that match your child’s likes and interests.

 Contact Us: Please feel free to call us anytime from 7:30 A.M. to 4:00 P.M. at 488-2315 with any questions, comments, or concerns that you may have. Thank you for all of your continued support!
