Welcome to 4th Grade
Teacher: Mrs. Amy Kundrat (firstname.lastname@example.org)
October 16- 23
Thank you to all the chaperones who joined us for Silver Bell Farm. Your time and help was greatly appreciated. We had a wonderful day and perfect weather!
We have wonderful weeks full of a great deal of learning in the fourth grade imagineering workshop. I am also happy to say that we are filling our Mickey hand with many splashes of color and can’t wait to see what the surprise is when it is all filled!
This week the fourth and fifth grade students will begin completing their weekly Moby Max practice. They must complete a MINIMUM of 50 minutes. The students have received the directions and must return the signed part ASAP. This will count as a weekly homework grade.
Conference times went home on Tuesday, October 10. I look forward to meeting with you during your designated day and time. Please note these conferences are not for the students to attend. If for some reason you are unable to attend your conference time, please contact me ASAP so we can try to reschedule your time.
