We are learning about the Tea Act, the Tea Party and the Intolerable Acts this week.
We are looking to start the final project writings around April 29th. Some writings will be coming home for editing and tying if your student choose to have their project typed.
Hopefully we will be starting the final project construction May 6th.
Mr. Avlersons class had a generous donation by a family to provide the entire class with poster boards. If your child is in that class, you will not need to get a poster board!!

This week in 4th grade math, the students are continuing their unit on decimals. We will be learning about the thousandths place and rounding off a number. Homework: There will be an exercise over thousandths place. Thanks!


Mrs. Gomez
The students finished up with their circuit building today, and will now work on presenting their discoveries to the class.  We will have a short quiz on Wednesday to make sure that we are all comfortable with the content before we move forward in our electricity unit.
4th Grade
Students will polish their Armed Forces Medley for their concert next week. It is now week 4 of recorder season! Good job surviving the past week 2 weeks! We will continue working on the recorder in class, hopefully making the squeaks and noises at home slightly more tuneful and bearable. Students have received their “Recorder Karate” packets–a self-teaching method that will provide more structure for practicing at home.

4th Grade: Have started learning the mechanics of Volleyball, and will now start to put the pieces together as it relates to the actual game.
