The Fourth Grade team is assembling educational activities for your students to use at home for both on-line and off-line activities. Math, reading, writing and science projects are being prepared. Mostly everything the students need will be provided. We ask that you have tape (scotch and masking), glue sticks and scissors. Please note the science materials contain some treats that are needed for experiments. Please remind your student not to eat the treats! (YET) We will begin using these items October 27. Designated pick up times will be this Thursday and Friday. You will be alerted to the pick-up times via email very soon! We are flexible and will be sure to make the pick-up easy. I am happy to hand off the materials to siblings who are on campus.
Day of the Dead A meaningful tradition in Fourth Grade is lead by Senora Blanca. El dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) is a uniquely Indo-Hispanic custom that demonstrates a strong sense of love and respect for one’s ancestors. The Day of the Dead is not a sad day. It is a celebration of the continuance of life, family relationships, community solidarity. Information from Senora will be in a letter attached to the parent email.
