Fabulous Fourth Grade Newsletter – April 12, 2024 Edition

Dear Families, April 12, 2024

Happy Spring! We are on full throttle with the many things we are learning to the research and projects we are working on! It’s an exciting time of the year! We started this week with celebrating Easter with our Pre-K buddies! Thank you Libby Stark for doing the work behind this!

The second to the last book report due at the end of this month: April 25th. Students have been given a list of options for the project book report. They are to choose one of these options with you this weekend so that plans are made!

Next Thursday is our field trip to Mt. Baker Theater to watch the play: “Frindle.” Currently we are reading the book for our literature. Students are enjoying learning how words are created and put into the dictionary. Many parents have signed up. We have enough tickets for all of us, thank you to an anonymous donor! If you did sign up, you will be receiving an email shortly with the procedures and protocols to chaperoning.

Next Friday is our Mass which will be Earth Day celebrations. We are preparing for them as I write! Please come and celebrate Mass with us! It is the last one we will be planning for the year.

Helping during Math times are here!
