Last week of 4th grade!

This is it.  Our last week of 4th grade.  I am so proud of all of the kids and how they persevered throughout digital learning.  Parents, I am also grateful and proud of how you stepped up to facilitate online learning.  It wasn’t easy and you did it!  You should celebrate the end of  this school year as much as the kids will.

Here is our schedule for this week.  

Monday – Digital Field Day

Tuesday – Whole class Zoom to chat and revisit memories and maybe play a few games (see email for Zoom invite)

Wednesday – Last day surprise.  No Zoom meeting, you may get a visitor!

I can’t tell you how much I will miss all of you.  Your kindness and hard work have not gone unnoticed!!

I love each and everyone of your children and hope they come visit me next year. For those of you attending different schools in the fall, I will miss you terribly.  Good luck at your new school.

Now, go have a fantastic summer.  You deserve it!  

If your child would like to exercise their creative side, visit Mt. Bethel’s Art Room Blog: http://mtbethelart.blogspot.com/. Here are some of their current lessons: Stop motion videos, Earth Day Art Challenge, Build a Fairy House, Make a stained glass planet earth, and more to come!

Week of April 13th

Welcome back from Spring Break! Fourth grade teachers will be posting separately for this week’s digital learning information.

On Friday, 4/10, the District announced that we are going to four-day digital school weeks from Monday – Thursday. Friday will be a day for students to catch-up on any previously assigned lessons. Teachers will be able to collaborate and conference with peers, parents and/or students, assess student progress, and prepare future instructional lessons. Can you have students continue to use digital tools to learn on Fridays? Absolutely! Is it required? No, but if working with a structured schedule is better for your child, then please carry on!

One of our top questions has been, “What about placement forms?” If you wish to fill out an OPTIONAL CLASS PLACEMENT FORM, THE NEW DIGITAL LINK IS HERE. If you filled one out previously on paper, you will need to complete again. RISING FIFTH GRADE PLACEMENT FORM.

Because this process of not being at school together is going to make placement more challenging, we are only offering a short window for completion. If you choose to complete the optional placement information, please do so by Friday, April 17th.

Have a great week of digital learning and don’t forget to utilize the resources at https://www.smore.com/kj568
