Mrs. Clark's 4th Grade Classroom
"Up, up and away,
It's time to start a new day.
Up, up where it's clear,
March is now here!"
We begin each day promptly at 8am! It is critical that your child arrives at school in plenty of time to eat breakfast (if applicable) and arrive in the classroom before 8am. The cafeteria begins serving breakfast at 7:20am each morning. Children are allowed to enter the classroom at 7:45am (school-wide policy).
Reminder: Please try to have your child in school on days where we have delays due to weather. I continue on with our curriculum which means that absent students miss out on new material.
Week Ending March 14th
Monday: RED Folders are due at 8am signed by parent/guardian.
Logs: Newspaper Logs are handed out each week on Monday morning and due on Friday morning. Your child will be given a detailed assignment for the week to be completed at home. An incomplete Newspaper Log will result in the student loosing REWARD time on Friday as well as a '0' in the gradebook - NO EXCEPTIONS.
Reading: We will continue reading the novel "Bud, Not Buddy" by Christopher Paul Curtis.
Math: We will continue our unit on Fractions this week looking at comparing and ordering fractions as well as relating fractions to decimals.
Social Studies: We will end our Economics Unit this week by doing a project which includes creating a poster on a famous North Carolinian and a brochure or Power Point on a famous place in North Carolina. We will continue our job and payroll project including banking with 'Mrs. Clark's Savings & Loan Bank'.
Remember, homework (i.e. Morning Work, etc.) is due no later than 8am the morning after it is assigned. It is critical for your child to turn ALL work in ON TIME. Late work can significantly lower your child's report card grade. Late work is only accepted through Friday of the week it is assigned.
REMINDER: 'Excuse Notes' for absences, as well as bus/car rider changes, need to have handwritten notes in ink containing the following information: my name, date(s); full name of student; reason; and, parent signature.
