Thank you!

I count so many blessings as I wrap up 15 years at Our Lady of Guadalupe School.  I often shout out to my OLG colleagues (they encourage me toward better teaching and are fun to be with).  At this, my leaving moment, I am filled with gratitude for YOU, parents, and your beautiful children.  You show me grace, time and time again…  forgiving my mistakes, celebrating the victories, laughing alongside me, cherishing the “moment” of this fourth -grade year.  I do believe this is a precious time. Ten -year -olds think deeply, question, have humor and are can do more than ever before.  I celebrate and affirm.  Thank you! God Bless.

 

Oral Presentations:

Peer evaluations and teacher evaluation notes are coming home on Monday.  All fourth graders can be proud of their hard work!

Yearbooks distributed to 4th grade  students who ordered on Monday.

Not sure if you ordered a yearbook?

Look for an email receipt from Google Forms after 4/18/21

Or, check FACTS – either check your email for the invoice, or log in to FACTS

Questions? Email Laura Wong

 

If you forgot to order, yearbooks are available at the front office while supplies last, $40 cash/check.

 

Dates and Details:

Monday, June 7:  School devices and chargers back at school.  4th grade won’t have them collected until Thursday, but we’d like them back on school grounds all week.

 

Thursday, June 10:  Please send a big shopping bag to school (along with the regular backpack) for students to bring home notebooks and such.

 

12:30-1:30 End of Year party at the Water Tower Park (that walking science field trip form allows me to take the class across the street).  Our wonderful room parent, Elicia Howell, has organized games and treats.

 

Friday, June 11:  Last day of school, Optional Mass with two ways to attend: in-person (signup and attend in person with family supervision) or Livestream (from home on personal device)

 

Summer Resources:

Mathwhizz, ExtraMath, A-Z Reading and online science resources (FOSS) continue.  Another skill for summer practice, typing skills.   Fourth graders should have accounts at https://www.typing.com  (This year I’ve avoided this focus to avoid digital overload, but typing is a skill students will need in upper grades).

 

The hard copy summer math packet will come home this week.

Students in grades 2-4 will receive a math packet and are encouraged to read 20-30 minutes a day. Kids A-Z reading resources will also be available.    We highly encourage you to keep your student on the suggested schedule so they can maintain the skills they have learned this year! 

Math Whizz and XtraMath will be available to your students throughout the summer. We recommend that you continue to use these resources as well!  For optimal results use Math Whizz for 45 minutes a week and XtraMath 3-5 times a week.

We start with the concrete/visual and also use the traditional algorithm to represent subtracting larger numbers across 0s.
