Weekly Notes from 4th Grade
Interims will be coming out this week. I would like to meet with you to discuss your child’s progression. I am available after school any afternoon except Tuesday and before school on Wednesday and Friday. Please let me know what your best time is to meet.
English: We are finishing the chapter on complete sentences. We will have a quiz on Tuesday. We will review chapters 1,2, 4, and 5 on Wednesday and Thursday and will have a test on those chapters on Friday. Please go to Mrsronysclassroom.com under Subjects, English, and practice. Understanding subjects and predicates is the basics for all sentences.
Vocabulary: We are studying the first Unit. We will have a test on Thursday, October 4th.
Religion: We are still learning and studying the Ten Commandments. A test on Chapter 4 will be on Friday.
We start Science on Monday. We will return to Social Studies in about 4 or 5 weeks. Our first Science chapter is about matter.
We have a college student from Liberty University who is studying education visiting our classroom once a week. After being with us for a few weeks, she will teach a Math lesson to the students. We look forward to having her work with us and seeing our great Holy Cross students.
Next Monday, October 1st is our field trip to the State Fair. Please email me to confirm if you are planning to go with us.
Please arrive at school at 7:15 A.M. We need to leave by 7:25 A.M. to be able to check in at the fair at 10:00 A.M.
Students are going to receive their yellow Holy Cross field trip tee-shirts this week. Students need to wear them on Monday– it makes them easier to keep up with in the crowd. A Holy Cross fleece or sweatshirt may be needed. Students may wear jeans or khakis for pants or shorts. Wear comfortable shoes!
Pack breakfast foods and/or a snack and drink for the ride to Richmond.
If the students want, they may bring cameras, sunglasses, and/or hats. They will be responsible for any of these items that they bring.
You may want to bring an empty cinch bag (backpack) into the fair to put things in as we collect things throughout the day. You may also want to pack a snack in it if you want to save money at the fair.
We will be eating lunch at the fair, so plan to bring additional money for lunch and snacks, maybe around $15.00.
Because of safety and insurance concerns, no Holy Cross students will be allowed to get on any rides!
Students will be allowed to bring books, games, electronic devices,
etc. for the trip as long as they have HEADPHONES.
Students will be responsible for their own possessions on the trip.
Our class will plan to stay together for the educational tour during the
morning, and we will then separate into groups to pursue individual
interests throughout the afternoon. The chaperone per group will then be responsible for the students in each group.
We will be leaving the fair around 2:30 p.m. and returning to school
close to 5:00 p.m. Please be at school around 5:00 P.M.
