Fabulous Fourth Grade Newsletter October 12, 2023

Dear Families,
In religion, your children are researching and creating a Power Point presentation about a saint of their choice. It will be presented to the rest of the class on November 1 – All Saint’s Day! They are also beginning chapter two of our religion books focusing on Eternal Truth given to us by God, our Creator. So, we used our observation skills to see the beauty of that Creation in our journals. We drew the littlest to the biggest that we saw outside. We discovered the tiniest of details that God made for us today! Then they thanked God in their journals for it! What a fun way to end the week!

To continue to take care of the earth, our class, along with the school, is collecting plastic until November 3rd. We will be collecting it at the school and you, as a household, can sign up for it too which will also bring in money for our school ($20 per family)! Here is the website to do that: https://get.ridwell.com/assumption-catholic
Also, here is a list of plastics that we are collecting and plastics that we are not collecting: https://www.ridwell.com/pickup-categories/pOXQXW5N

Here is a link for the Weekends with Pebbles Sign up!
