The 4th graders have a busy week ahead! Please take a moment to review what we will be covering over this week. Please note that Trimester 1 is over on Friday December 2nd. It is important that students bring in a charged chromebook to school each day.

Our Physical Education Special on Tuesday has been moved to Thursdays at 10:40-11:20 for the month of December. Please be sure that your child wears sneakers on Wednesday’s and Thursday’s for December.

As the weather begins to get colder please ensure that your child is bringing an appropriate jacket to school each day. We will be going outside every day we can, it is important that your child is dressed appropriately.

Below you will find what we will be doing for each subject this week:
