September 16-20

It was great seeing so many of you at Curriculum Night. If you were unable to attend I am sending home the notes in your student’s homework folder.

Reading: Our reading focus will be on reading and responding to non-fiction using articles related to Hispanic Heritage Month.

Writing:We will begin our 6 week Personal Narrative writing unit

Math: Chapter 1: Place value, addition and subtraction to one million is the focus.    When applicable the math book will be sent home for homework. Please remind your child to put it back in their homework when finished.

Religion: We will learn how to live as a disciple of Jesus by continuing with the cardinal virtues and adding the Fruit of the Spirit words to our vocabulary and daily actions.

Science: We will revisit our STEM project on learning from mistakes and take what we learned to create a more efficient broom and dust pan.

Social Studies: The Washington Adventure book will be introduced to the class this week

Friday is the Jog-a-thon. Keep those pledges coming. Dress for running. Thanks to all who have volunteered to help with this event.


Today we worked on GROUP skills while doing a STEM project. The students worked by themselves and then shared their ideas with their group to create the longest paper chain using only scissors, 2 pieces of paper, 1 foot of masking tape, and a ruler.


See you Wednesday, September 4th!

My name is Mrs. Mari Kirsch Halley. I am very excited to be your child’s  4th grade teacher this school year.

Our school theme for the school year is KINDNESS
