Welcome to 4th Grade
Teacher: Ms. Amy Gorzkowski (email@example.com)
It is hard to believe that the last day of the school year is only a week away.
During this last week, we will finish our Charlotte's Web unit, review math skills as we solve mysteries, and learn about science and social studies in our Storyworks and National Geographic.
Throughout the year the students have learned many skills so this is a time when we review those skills and reflect on the wonderful year that we have had.
Thank you for all of your support throughout the year!
May 22-26 and May 29- June 2
We have a very busy next few weeks! I can't believe how quickly the school year is flying by. Due to the upcoming long weekend and field day, I have included the schedule for the next two weeks.
May 24- Class Visit to ShopRite

May 31- Eric Carle Museum
June 1-3- St. Bernard Church Carnival
June 2- First Friday Mass at 1:15pm
For the ShopRite field trip, the students need to wear their regular school uniforms. We will be back in time for lunch so they may buy hot lunch.
On Tuesday, May 30 it is Field Day and the students are to wear a yellow shirt, comfortable and appropriate shorts, and sneakers. All students are to bring a water bottle with their name on it. Also, students should apply sunscreen and bug spray before coming to school since the students will be outside most of the day.
When we go to the Eric Carle museum the students need to bring a bagged lunch that can be thrown away after. The students may dress down in appropriate attire.-NO tank tops or flip flops. The students will NOT be going to the gift shop.
We will continue working on Charlotte's Web. Please make sure the students study their vocabulary along the way. There will be an assessment at the end.
There is a spelling test this Tuesday, May 23 and Friday, June 2.

Have a wonderful week and enjoy the long weekend!
May 15 - 19
Iowa testing is complete so the students have opened their testing gift. However, you will have to ask them what it is because I do not want to ruin the surprise of them telling you.
This week is a very busy week as we are putting the finishing touches on our musical, On Safari. The students have worked very hard learning the songs and the acting so make sure to come on Wednesday at 6:30pm. The students are wearing neutral color bottoms and bright solid colored t-shirts (NOT neon).
Also, our feathery friends will be leaving our classroom at the end of the week. We have had a wonderful time getting to know them and watching them grow, but it is time they get to go to their bigger home on a farm.
Due to the changes in our class schedule because of dress rehearsals, the next spelling test will be on Tuesday May 23.
More details on our upcoming trip to ShopRIte will come out later on this week.
Also, our class is in need of paper towels. Please consider sending in another roll or two so we have enough until the end of the school year.
Please know that since testing is complete, we are back to our regular routine of nightly homework.
Have a wonderful week!
