Graded Work, Gradelink & Latework - IMPORTANT
Graded work goes home every Wednesday. Please go over the work with your child, sign their folder so that I know you saw it, and return the folder to school. Keep the work in a safe place until the end of the trimester.
It is very important that students and parents are checking gradelink EVERY WEEK. Wednesdays are a great night for a midweek check in with grades.
Many students are NOT TURNING IN THEIR HOMEWORK and their grades are being negatively effected. At this point in the school year the students still need help from Mom and Dad checking in with their school work. Please help support your child in learning the class routines by encouraging accountability and responsibility and checking in at home.
My "No Name" pile is HUGE. If your child has an incomplete assignment on gradelink, this is the first place they should look.
Class Dojo - About half of the families have connected with the class on Class Dojo. This is a great way for parents to track their child's behavior at school and also a fun way for us to communicate what we are doing in 4th grade. I've been posting pictures throughout the week and I will also be sending reminder messages via Class Dojo. So it is a good idea to get signed up and have your alerts on! :) If you need help, don't hesitate to reach out!
I've been lenient for these first few weeks and have just taken off a few points but starting next week LATEWORK is worth 50% credit.
Reading Logs need to be filled out completely and signed by a parent. They are due the following Monday when students get their new planner. They can be turned in early on Friday.
ALL GRADES ARE UP TO DATE as of today including late and make up work.
If we have mass on a PE day, students have the option of changing into their PE clothes at recess, but they don't have to. On Free Dress days, students may wear free dress but need to have appropriate shoes for PE and wear clothes that they can be active in.
Bocce Tournament - please sign up for this fun social event! I had a blast last year and would love to see lots of 4th grade representation! :) You can also support the cause by helping your child to sell their raffle tickets. Thank you class for generously sponsoring my husband and I for this fun event!!
Thank you everyone for your generous contributions to the Hurricane relief fundraiser. The school raised over $1,500 to go toward Catholic Schools effected by the storms.
