  • 4th Quarter - Things to Know:


    • Quarter 4 here we are!!! Standing tall and proud of the all the achievements we have made so far. I hope everyone had a restful Spring Break and managed to get themselves pumped for the upcoming final quarter! With Quarter 4 come a lot of challenges and triumphs to be had! It's really when we need to dig our feet into the ground and brace ourselves for the coming waves. We have finished up learning all 4th grade related standards that are to be learned. Now it’s just a matter of jogging our memories and practicing all the new skills we have learned so far this year. Quarter 4 brings out the testing giants that we have honed our swords of knowledge for. We will spend the next month battling our foes; AIMS Science, AzMerit Writing, AzMerit Math, and AzMerit ELA, and we… will… be… VICTORIOUS!!…  


    • Please Remember that attendance is important for every student, because every minute is a learning minute. Every Monday, a newsletter will come home in regards to what is happening in the classroom, in addition daily/weekly posts on ClassDojo


    • Throughout the year students are held to a higher standard on monitoring their own behaviors. Parents, you can always check and monitor your students behavior progress via ClassDojo. Students earn/lose points daily based on their personal behavioral choices. It is your child's job to go home and show you their daily dojo point log and A.R. reading log. 


    • Our school serves (free) breakfast in the classroom where all students are provided with the option to eat breakfast. At the beginning of each month I send home the breakfast menu so that parents can see what students are being provided with during the month. If your child lost the menu and you are curious, you can access it via the food services image. (plus more health conscious parents can make a more informed decision on breakfast in the mornings)
