Grade 4: End of Year: 2015-2016

it’s hard to believe that the end of the 2015-2016 school year is almost here. Our students have worked very hard and we are proud of the progress and growth they have shown.

Over the summer, students should continue to be reading daily and practicing their basic math facts. Continuing a routine will best set up your child to success in fifth grade. In June, students will receive a homework packet with work for them to complete. This work will prepare them for fifth grade and will be collected during the first week of school next year.

Thank you for your support and stay tuned for resources for over the summer!

Grade 4: 2015-2016 Art Showcase

Students in fourth grade wrapped up their “Studio in a School” experience by viewing each others art work during the art showcase. Students created many different pieces of art, including skyscraper models that students designed, glued, and painted. A wonderful time was had by all!!

Grade 4: Class 402 Lunar New Year

Students in Ms. Iannece and Mr. Peo’s class learned about the Lunar New Year. With help from our school librarian, Ms. King, the students watched a video that discussed the various ways people celebrate the lunar new year. We learned about the culture, the celebrations, the parades, and traditions of the Lunar New Year. We do not have school this Monday, February 8th, in observance of the Lunar New Year Holiday. 402 chinese new yr

Students will be going on a field trip to the NY Museum of Natural History on 12/16/2015. Permission Slips and field trip money ($7) is due to your childs teacher ASAP. Please contact the teacher if you have any questions.

Students are reminded that they MUST be wearing their uniform to school every day. Students without uniforms will be sent to the office to get uniform clothes.

As we continue our math units, we’ve noticed students continue to struggle with their multiplication tables. It is important students be practicing their facts DAILY.
