Dear Families,

Thank you for the generous contributions towards our Jaguar Basket! Please look for it at Saturday’s Parish Fun Night!

Mrs. McGuire would like the children to bring a bath or beach towel for PE. Please put it in a plastic bag so it can be carried to school and back home on PE days.

Please remember to send/ scan Box Tops by October 23! Grade 4 would LOVE to win a Non-Uniform Day!

Please don’t forget students can get some extra Vocabulary Workshop practice by visiting: www.sadlierconnect.com  **scroll to “Student & Family Resources”; *click “Let’s Go” in the purple box; *click Vocabulary Workshop Grades 1-12; *click Vocabulary Workshop “orange”. No usernames or passwords needed! Please see the bottom of my BT webpage for additional resources.

I am so proud of our class! Grade 4 has successfully answered 30,000 IXL Math questions since school started. Way to go 4th Graders and keep up the outstanding work! Effort produces excellence!

In addition, all students have access to IXL Language Arts. Everyone would benefit from extra practice to sharpen Language Arts, Reading and Grammar skills, so let’s use it while it is available to us.

Our Homeroom Moms have a Facebook page for the class! If you are not already on it, please let me know and I will pass on your email address to Mrs. Williams. I know it has lots of good posts and she would be very happy to invite you!

ACCELERATED READER (AR):

Students are required to read and take a minimum of 3 Accelerated Reader (AR) Tests and corresponding Vocabulary Quizzes (if available…not every book as one) within his/her assigned reading level range, striving for 80% accuracy, by Wednesday, Oct. 14.

Please encourage your student NOT to wait until the last minute to complete this AR requirement. Be sure to check out arbookfind.com for book recommendations and AR levels.
