March 18-22

Hello parents! (from Miss Pohlig this time)

This week got off to a great start today, as the students still maintained their enthusiasm for the biographies they are writing, and they read intently during reading. We are trying to finish the books we are reading by next Thursday, so they can then do a small project about the book on Thursday and Friday before we go on Spring Break (yay!). In order to do this, a few are being their books home. If they do, please make sure they read it and bring the book back to school the next day so they have it to read in class!

In math, we are continuing to work on long division, and the students seem to be progressing quite well. However, many of them struggle a little with this because they do not know their multiplication facts. Please review these with your child at home! It will make multi-digit multiplication and long division so much easier!

The most exciting news is that next Thursday, March 28, you are all invited to come to the 4th grade wax museum! It will be held from 1:15 - 1:45 in room 214. You are welcome to come any time in between then. The students will dress up as the figures they researched (if desired), and will share with visitors a little about themselves. It will be a very unique Author Celebration, and the students are all excited about it! Please help your child prepare a simple costume and props if they would like. They will still wear school uniforms that day and just change when time for the museum.

Next, we failed to mention that last week, Jared was our Student of the Week! He is always very helpful to teachers and other students, and strives to do well in all of his schoolwork. Way to go Jared!

Hopefully you all received the email from the school containing the newsletter that will now be sent out every week. In it, there was information about a volunteer website we will begin using. Mrs. Connelly and I will be setting this up soon so you can see when and what we need help with.

Thanks for all you do!
Miss Pohlig
