Fabulous Fourth Grade Newsletter

Dear Families, May 3, 2024

Happy Mother’s Day, Moms! We greatly appreciate you! Thank you for all you do for your child/ren to be successful, rounded students!

For students in the Missoula Children’s Theater next week, they will not have homework. Hope they join!

MAP testing will be finishing the week of May 20th on Tuesday and Thursday. There won’t be homework on the night before so students can get good sleep. Please send your child/ren in with good snacks!

Finally, the last book report is set for June 6th for an edible creation. However, if your child is done earlier with his/her book, then they are welcome to present it earlier for our palate delight! I figured if ALL the students bring in their edible creation all on June 6th, we will be overwhelmed with food! Please have a discussion with your child about what he/she (with support from you) is going to make. Discuss time line of finishing the book and time line of when it would be good to bring it in. Have them then report to me and we can set up a date for the book report prior to June 6th.

I did not send home Friday Folders this week due to taking the MAP test on three of the days and having limited homework. I will send them home next week.

Brainstorming ideas on how to prevent a landslide from hitting a town.

Religion – Fourth Grade Theologians worked on Mother’s Day presents and started our Cel-YOU-bration!
Language and Social Studies – Fourth grade readers are reading about how Washington was formed. For spelling, we focused on the words related to the calendar. We are working hard on our five-paragraph essay about a pet!
Math – We took MAP tests during our math times or we reviewed with Daily 5s.
Science – Scientists learned about land slides and erosion.

May 13-17 – Missoula Children’s Theater

Friday, May 17 – All school Mass – dress uniform

Tuesday, May 21 & Thursday, May 23 – Last week of MAP testing – Language Arts and Math


Spanish – Una nota de Señora Anna- This week in Spanish, we learned vocabulary to describe our favorite sports and activities. Then, we played charades to practice! We also had a visit from a traveling Our Lady of Fatima. We prayed and learned about her message to the children of Fatima.

Art – The students will assemble all the pieces to create their final composition: a futuristic city.
