Dear 4B Parents,
Happy June and second to last newsletter of the year! The “Graduation” celebration for Mrs. Harris was lovely and fun. She was very touched by the outpouring of love she received from all. If any students wanted to make a card but did not get time to do so they can send them in this week and I will be sure she gets them. The Corpus Christi Procession on Thursday was also a very special event. If you didnt get a chance to see the picture and article in the West Seattle Blog, Mrs. Horton sent out last week you can access it here.
Mystery Book Reports: The students will be making their mystery book report presentations this week. Students should be prepared to present with a clear order and organization to their talk. If you have Power Points or Google Docs send them to me and I can have them set up for the Smart Board.
Social Studies: The Washington City test will take place this Thursday. Last week we learned all about the Denny Party, and this week the students will learn about the building of early Seattle and the crazy events that led to the reason we have an Underground Tour!
Pray for sun!! Our final field trip of the year will take place next Wednesday, June 13th. Hopefully the weather will cooperative and give us a rain free day. We will learn about the early history of Seattle on the very entertaining, and historical Underground Tour. For those of you that have been on the public tour before, please know that this tour is geared for school age students and very appropriate! Following the tour we will head to Alki to eat our lunches and have some playtime together on the same beach that the Denny Party landed on in 1851. A Pizza lunch will be provided. I do encourage students to bring a water bottle, especially if it is hot. If you signed up to drive/chaperone you will be getting an email later this week with some specific information.
Cleaning Days next Tuesday and Thursday! All students are asked to bring in a sturdy bag or two so that they can bring home the contents of their desks, as well as some rags for cleaning. Thank you! . The majority of desk items will be sent home next Tuesday. I have been keeping a portfolio of some of the bigger and more “special” projects and assignments this year. These items will come home next Thursday in a separate large “portfolio folder” the students will make. Don’t throw away this portfolio without taking out what you could like to save!
Our classwork this week will consist of finishing up units of study and tasks. The work we do this week is important and will be included in their final grades. Thank you for helping keep your children rested and ready to do their best to finish out the year. The students are working on a reader’s theater called Blame it on the Wolf that they will present to the third graders later in the week. Look for math homework each night this week.
