It's Summer Break!

Hi Class Parents! I can't believe the time has come - I am addressing you as future 4th Grade parents!
Your child was sent home with a few things today. First, you will find their report card in a yellow envelope, along with their room assignments for 4th Grade and DRA level.
Don't forget - the PTO is having a fundraiser for school supplies. If you purchase a pre-determined kit, you won't have to shop for school supplies over summer, and they will be delivered to your child on the first day of school.
Also - the PTO has given out little baggies for box tops. If you child collects 25 over the summer break, their name will be put into a raffle for a Barnes and Noble gift card. If they collect 50 box tops, their name will be put in a 2nd raffle for an amazon gift card.
It was a pleasure having your children for Writer's Workshop this year! I wish your children many successes as they move forward in their academic career.
See you in September! Have a happy. safe, and restful Summer Vacation.
Miss Tiscornia

Updates for 5/21/18

Hi Parents! Here are some announcements for today - 5/21/2018.
1. An orange Bus Form was sent home to every student today. This is your child's bus application for the 2018/2019 school year. Even if your child is not taking a bus, every child must be accounted for - therefore, every child must return the form. Forms are due ASAP, but we are accepting them until 5/31.

Thank you and have a great day!

Liberty Science Center Trip Form

Hi Class Parents!
It's time for our end-of-the-year trip! Students received a hard copy today, but here is a digital copy also. There are two sides to the form, and you MUST sign and return the form in order for your child to attend. Here are some highlights.
1. The PTA is partially sponsoring our trip! That means that cost-per-student is only $4.00.
2. The trip will take place on Wednesday, June 6th.
3. We are allotted 5 chaperones for our class. If more than 5 parents volunteer, there will be a raffle to determine chaperones. 
Please read the entire trip form for more information!
Thank you!

Education Galaxy

Hi Parents!
In light of the students taking the PARCC next week, I have signed up each child for Education Galaxy. This is a blended learning website that combines test prep and Reading, Language Arts, and Math skills. Students are free to access at home in order to prepare themselves for the test next week! If you are interested in having your students log in at home, please e-mail me so that I can send you their username and password.
Once students log in, they should go to My Study Plan to practice skills.
