Field Trip to Mission San Diego de Alcala
4th Grade Soloists at Our Mass last Friday
Mission Reports are wrapping up. The rough draft of the last paragraph is due this Friday. The final report will be put together at home and is due next Friday 3/11. The students received detailed information on how to put the reports together. This should be in their report folders. If students do not have time to finish their maps, diary entries, table of contents, and dividers in class over the next week then they will need to complete some of that at home. I would check in with your child toward the end of the week to make sure that they do not have a load of things to complete right before the report is due.
Mission Models due this Friday. This was a completely OPTIONAL family project. On Friday students will get a chance to share their mission and discuss the process of building it. They will be on display in the library to view for the next several weeks. I've asked the students not to bring the models in until Friday morning because we do not have room to store them in the classroom.
The end of the trimester is quickly approaching 3/11! Students will not be allowed to turn in any late/make up work after this Friday. The only exception to this is if students are making up or re-taking tests from this week. Any work completed after this Friday will go on next trimester's report card. Please check gradelink so that there are not any surprises when report cards come home at the end of the trimester. I have a huge no-name pile.
Island of the Blue Dolphins novel study - We are wrapping up our most recent novel study. This is an incredible book based on true events that connect to California history. The students have been able to connect their learning about California Native Americans, explorers, and missions to this beautiful novel by Scott O'Dell. Unfortunately, some of the students did not take care of the books that I loaned to them and they will need to be replaced. You will receive a note in your child's Wednesday folder next week if this is the case.
Mandatory Parent Informational Meeting on March 15th at 6:00 PM in the 4th grade classroom. This is in preparation for our 4th grade overnight field trip coming up this spring.
Outerwear- Students have been wearing non-SJA sweatshirts and jackets to school. This is not allowed per our school uniform policy. Students wearing non-uniform attire will be asked to remove it while at school. On Fridays, students should be in their mass dress attire, not in spirit wear/hoodies.
Our awesome new SJA spirit wear was passed out today! Please check that your child got their correct order and e-mail coach Bohman if there are any issues.
Thank you so much to families who have donated boxes of tissue! We could still use a few more if anyone is grocery shopping over the weekend :)
SJA Annual Gala! I hope everyone is planning on attending this year's gala! It is such a fun event, and raises a lot of money for school programs. Please support your child is selling their raffle tickets for this year's gala. Also, consider bringing friends to the gala or sponsoring a table! :)
The photographs are GORGEOUS! Even if you are unable to attend the gala, I encourage you to purchase these beautiful photographs of your children.
Thank you so much for your generous gift of a Jewelry Raffle Ticket! :)
Noon dismissal this Friday
School Wide Reconciliation is next Tuesday
