Attention 4th Grade Entrepreurs - I just wanted to let you know that, after expenses, your lemonade stand made a profit of $140.40. I presented the money to Principal Brett on your behalf, and she promisd that the money would go toward something that would directly benefit SMS students. The entire faculty and staff were so proud of your work ethic and enthusiasm.
Dear Fourth Graders - I just want to thank you for being such a wonderful class. I thoroughly enjoyed our time together. You are a funny, joyful, intelligent, creative, kind, and lovely group of kids. I will keep you in my prayers and remember you always. I hope you have an amazing summer.
5th Grade Letter - Students received a letter and math packet from their future 5th grade teacher. Parents and students need to sign the bottom half of the form and return it to school ASAP.
AR Reading Goals - Students should be working toward meeting their 4th quarter AR goals as well as improving their reading levels. Additionally, they need to be increasing the amount of time that they spend reading. This is crucial.
Reading - Students should be reading at least 30 minutes a day. They should also be reading various types of materials and genres (books, magazines, comics, letters, cereal boxes, etc.). Please make sure your child also brings two or three reading books back to school in January to keep in their book boxes or backpacks.
SMS Spirit Wear - SMS spirit wear can now be ordered all year long. Simply go to the following link: http://cobrapromotionsgroup.com/sms/
Series Online Access - On the inside cover of the Student Planner, you will see a label with the web site, login, and password for accessing the Journeys Reading Series online. All of 4A has the sticker, but I only gave the sticker to half of 4B. I will adhere the rest of the stickers next week.
Word of The Day - Many students asked me to put the link up for "Word of The Day". So, here it is, kids! I'm super happy you want to build your vocab skills! https://www.merriam-webster.com/word-of-the-day
Chapter Books - All 4A and 4B students should keep 1 to 2 books to read in their backpacks at all times effective immediately. We want to spend a lot of time reading rich, authentic, and varied text. When a book has been finished, please have your child add a new book right away. Thank you for your support.
Kid-Friendly Search Engines - There are a few kid-friendly search engines out there. Here are three of them. If you know any more, please let me know and I will add them to the list.
