Our fourth graders are working very hard!  We  appreciate support from parents at home.  Please feel free to contact me if you have questions or concerns. Thank you to those of you who joined in on class dojo!  Please continue to check your student's daily homework planners in which they should record the day's homework assignments.  Always look for their Homework folders each day, except Fridays!  They should also bring home a library book every night to read  as often as they can.

Occasionally, we will assign Language, Writing, or Reading Homework: If so, it should be recorded in your child's daily planner.  We do not normally assign written homework over the weekend.  However, as the STAAR test gets nearer, that might be an option. Please sign the weekly conduct grade in their planner every Wednesday and initial the assignments stapled together in the Parent section and return them to the folder. Leave the stapled papers attached so that we can use them to reteach and keep the rest of that week's work.  We are always available if you would like a conference.  We welcome your questions and concerns.  We will continue to schedule a first semester conference and later a second semester conference.  Our conference period is 1:15-2:00.  Let's continue to have a successful year!
