That being said, we’ve got lots of special activities in the days and weeks ahead.
This week our students will participate in a four-day program called Courage to Stand. It’s an interactive program geared toward helping students in the upper grades discuss, address, and prevent bullying. Please be sure to ask your child to share what they’re learning, plus you may contact our counselor Kristina Kerns is you have questions.
Our fourth-grade choir is working hard on their spring musical, which they’ll present later this month. And in May students will go an art and music field trips, plus enjoy career day, track-and-field day, and a student talent show on campus.
In the classroom:
Reading: We’re finishing our novel A Handful of Stars and will then review literary concepts and test skills and strategies.
Writing: We’re excited to pair our writing with some amazing artwork with Storybird.com and will have fun playing with other genres such as fractured fairy tales and persuasive writing.
Social studies: We’re ready to explore Texas’ rapid growth following the Civil War.
Math: Reviewing customary and metric measurement and elapsed time plus a review of all units and revisiting targeted skills
SEL: Solving more difficult problems
And finally, remember there is no school this Friday, April 14.
