Don’t forget!

Parents, don’t forget to sign up for ClassDojo if you haven’t already.  This will be the new communication tool used to give you an inside look at what is happening in the classroom, your child’s work, homework/project information and behavior/work and study habits.  Remember, a Target Tally will no longer come home each week.  Thanks!

For those of you who have already signed up, I hope you like the “new view” of what happens in Target.

New Communication Tool

This week we will begin using Class Dojo  in all Target classes to keep you informed of what is happening in Target.  You will receive an email invite and you will also receive a letter with a code.  The letter will come home with your child this week on their Target day.  When you receive your Dojo invite please sign-up so that you can get connected to your child’s target class.

Since we will be going to this format the blog will be used for general information and there will no longer be a Target Tally that comes home weekly.  When you sign up for your child’s class you will be able to see pictures from our day, students will be able to upload pictures of their work and videos to their account and you will be able to see how your child is doing during the day (work and study habits as well as behavior).

Welcome back to Target 4th grade!  Today we completed a cryptogram and logic puzzle.  We watched the movie of the book from our novel study from last semester to wrap up that unit. Students completed a self-evaluation of the last semester in Target and set goals for the upcoming quarter/semester.  Progress reports came home today.  Please be sure to review the report and your child’s reflection.

NOTE:  We will not have Target next week due to the MLK holiday.
