As much as I love summer, I always get excited about the beginning of a new school year. Registration is currently happening and within a day or so, I will have a new list of students for the 2014-2015 school year. With the summer days drawing to a close, I pray that each of my new students and their families are as excited about the start of school as I am. I look forward to meeting each of you on August 21 for meet the teacher. Bring your supplies and your brightest smiles between 4:30 and 5:30. See you there!
Class Pictures will be taken tomorrow morning. Picture envelopes were sent home last Thursday and Friday. The cost for pictures is $10 dollars which includes an 8×10 shot and free 5×7 fun shot. Please send cash only. All money is due by Friday, May 16th.
On another note, I hope all the mothers had a great Mother’s Day! Hopefully your son or daughter gave you their Top Ten list and treated you royally today.
It’s here! Spring break at last. I know that each of you have been working hard since we returned in January, so this break is much deserved. Remember to be safe and rest up because when we return from break, time will fly and STAAR testing will hit.
While on break, be sure to read daily for at least 20 minutes. My goal is to read several books that I have uploaded to my Kindle. Also, if you go somewhere, take pictures and add them to your blog along with some writing to explain and tell all about your trip!
Have a great week off, and I will see you back on March 17th!
Spelling Words for when you return…
Due to the weather, classes will begin at 10 o’clock on Wednesday, February 12th. See you in the morning!
The past few weeks, the fourth grade students have been studying Natural Resources and writing about ways to conserve these important resources. Here is our poster presentation. We hope you enjoy! They worked really hard to make creative and informative posters.

This week looks to be a busy week for fourth grade. Our students are scheduled to take their mock writing benchmark tests on Tuesday and Wednesday, February 11 and 12th. Each test is a four hour test including a revision and editing section and essay. One day the essay will be narrative, and the other day will be expository. Please ask your student how to tell the difference between the two. They might can even sing the Deep and Wide Writing song to help refresh their memories. Also, please be sure that your child gets a good night’s sleep and encourage them to take their time and do their very best work.
On another note, their will be no spelling test this week due to benchmark testing, and our Valentine Exchange will be Friday, February 14th at 2:30 – 3:15. Students will need to bring their Valentines and box on Thursday and a canned or bottled soft drink by Friday. Each class will have Valentines’ related activities.
