May your Easter Season be blessed!

 Religion- We will be talking about what comes after the Resurrection. We are planning Mass this Thursday April 27th and next Thursday May 4th . Parts for this week will come home tomorrow.

Science: New chapter…Clouds, wind and storms. We began reading and highlighting today.   Because of ISTEP we will not have an assessment this week. Next week we will be back to normal, whatever that looks like. Our assessment will be on Tuesday May 2nd.

Language Arts:   We have begun our Famous Hoosier Project. Everyone’s first paragraph should be complete. This week with ISTEP we will concentrate on our Trademarks. There have bees some modifications to this project, so ask your student to share the latest update. It will come home tomorrow.

Social Studies-Our newspaper this week will take us to fun places in Indiana. Some of these places are our states best kept secrets. We will have in class activities to instead of an assessment at this time.

4th Grade Math: 4th Grade Math: Introduce the terms area and perimeter. Practice finding the measurements on square and rectangular figures.   Perimeter is the distance around a figure, and area includes the square units inside a given figure.

Please remember we have a zero tolerance procedure set in place when work is not completed and turned in on time. You can review this in the email I sent or call me, 317-787-0371 with questions, comments, or concerns.

As you know we have Science and Social Studies books we can write in.   Because we continuously have students losing their booklets and require a second and sometimes a third copy, I will be charging for the new copies. I will charge 10 cents a page, this booklet is 6 pages so a new one will cost 60 cents. So if your student loses their Weather and Climate booklet they will not receive another copy until the 60 cents has been paid. The social studies newspapers cost $ 5.95 per newspaper so to replace those it will cost $5.95 cents before I will give them a new copy also. Please call me, 317-787-0371 with questions, comments, or concerns.

I also need to remind you I seldom check my email in the evening.   So, the best way to get a hold of me unless it can wait until the next day is 317-787-0371.
