Good afternoon 4A Families,

Today 4th grade spent all morning preparing for the Forward Exam next week. We test Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. We will be taking the ELA sessions (written language, listening, reading, and writing). The scholars are bringing home the examples we worked through today, and can continue to practice at home. Here is the link for the practice questions:  all of the login information is right on the screen, they don't need any other credentials.

Next week there will not be spelling or reading homework so that scholars can come home, relax, and get a good night's sleep. Our testing sessions start right away at 8:30 sharp. Please make sure scholars are on time to school on testing days, and have eaten a good breakfast. We will be providing a healthy snack for all scholars Monday-Wednesday so please do not send any snacks on those days. Scholars will need headphones for the test on Tuesday. Please check with your scholars that their headphones are working and if they need a new pair. If you have any questions about testing please contact Mrs. Starr, Miss Jones, or myself. 

Our cantor singers next week for Mass are: Khamiah and Evelyn.

Good afternoon 4A Families,

Here are some updates for this week.

In ELA scholars are in their second week of our new unit. In this unit we are reading Love that Dog by Sharon Creech. This unit is all about poetry and each week scholars will be writing at least one poem in their poetry journals. 

In Social Studies we are taking our Chapter 5 test tomorrow. Scholars received their review last week Wednesday and have had plenty of class time to complete it. The test is very short and I anticipate scholars to do well. 

Our Cantor scholars this week are Logan and Stormy.

We have Wisconsin Forward Testing coming up in the next couple of weeks. We will be taking the ELA sections on March 18th, 19th, and 20th and the math sections on March 26th and 27th. Some of the days we will be testing right away in the morning so it is very important that scholars are coming to school on time. We will be practicing for the test and doing some sample tests next week in class. Here is a link to the practice website so that scholars can take practice tests and learn about the test online
