The fourth grade teaching staff is busy planning our calendar for speakers and experts to come in and share their information with our students. In order to do this, we will be collecting a fee to cover the costs of each speaker/presenter/purchase. Please look for this note early next week.
Students did a great job presenting their Brown Bag project this week! Almost everyone chose to share with the class, and we were able to learn a lot about each other. It's also a great start to presenting in front of a group of peers and working on those early public speaking skills.
Speaking of speaking skillls, your student brought home a note about Student Council. We had a discussion in class today about what a student needs to do if he or she is interested in running for this position. Please take a minute to talk about this and possibly even help your child construct a short speech for next Friday before our election.
We ended our week with a fun game show-themed assembly, loosely based on the "Press Your Luck" show...Whammies and all! Students had fun answering questions on positive choices, PAWS behavior, and ways to stay safe at school. As your son/daughter what happened when a Whammy was chosen from the bag!
An interesting article was brought to my attention this week. I am posting a link for you to read it, too.
As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me! Enjoy your weekend...here's hoping for two more days like today!!
