What a Groooovy Class I have!
It's the two week count down! Can you believe it? It is such a bittersweet time of year. I think the students are ready for summer, but I am sad that it is time for my sweet 4th graders to leave me! They have made so much growth this year and I know that they are more than ready for 5th grade!
Reminder: No HW club this week and next. If students need to re-take/make-up any tests they should make an appointment with me.
Spirit Day Tomorrow - students should dress as their favorite book character!
Publishing Party is being Postponed! It seems that all of the students need more time to work on publishing their books, so I don't want to rush them. We will plan to have the celebration NEXT Thursday 6/9 from 2:00-2:30. If anyone wants to volunteer to bring in treats, please e-mail me :)
Please get Beach Day permission slips turned in! I also need drivers, chaperones and volunteers to bring in coolers and a pop-up for the day. Please sign up using the link above :) We can't do this day without lots of parent help!
Next Wednesday is our Walk Through California Program! Students will be receiving their "role" for this program in class tomorrow and will need to do some independent research and memorize their "lines" in order to prepare for next week. Students will also need to put together a costume! They may dress up as one of the following:
- California Native American
- Spanish Conquistador or Padre
- Mexican Vaquero, ranchero, soldier or senorita
- Gold Miner
- Another symbol that represents California history (CA region, land form or produce)
Students should come to school in their costume on Wednesday. The program starts at 8:30 am in the parish hall. Parents are welcomed and encouraged to join- it is quite entertaining!
iPads are being collected next Wednesday 6/8 during computer class. Students need to turn in their iPad, their original charger, and the iPad case provided by the school. Students will not receive their yearbook or report card if iPad (and accessories) are not turned in. The same goes for any outstanding school fines that need to be paid.
Mexican Fiesta - next Tuesday 6/7 is our last Spanish class of the year. We will be having a fiesta during class to celebrate all of our learning this year. Please sign up to bring in something to share :)

Time Capsules - it is a Saint James Academy tradition that students put together a "Time Capsule" to be opened at the end of 8th grade. Information on what should go in this time capsule will go home next Monday. Time capsules will be due Friday 6/10. We will be sealing our time capsules - so please get them in on time!!
Parent Appreciation Coffee is this Monday 6/6! Please join us!

I am a little late to joining the party.... but I've created a school instagram account for posting pictures of what is going on in 4th grade. We are having a lot of fun activities these next two weeks so follow @4thgradesja to stay connected! :)
