It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like.....Ice !!!

Yikes! I have to say that I am beginning to think this field trip to the museum is NOT supposed to happen. LOL  After having to be rescheduled in 3rd Grade, a hassle to iron out details this year, and now possible ice in the forecast for Friday... one can't help but wonder.

At this point, everything is still on schedule. Unfortunately, we will not know anything for sure until Friday morning. With temperatures dropping so suddenly and weather patterns constantly changing, we will have to see whether we have just a cold rain or a sleet/ice when we are ready to go and what the weather will do while we are there. Dr. Truncale is watching everything closely, as are we.
**I will be updating the blog and emailing to keep you informed. Please check before contacting us.
A sound/safe judgment will be made and we are prepared to stay here, if needed. Thank you for your patience, as we are in the same holding position. The good thing is that this trip should only take 2 hours. Short and sweet.
Please check back for updates.


The district is giving a "mock" STAAR WRITING test next Monday and Tuesday to all 4th Grade students. These two days will run just as the actual STAAR test in April. We will test each day from 8AM- 12PM- (Less if everyone finishes early).
Each day will consist of writing one paper addressing expository or narrative text, as well as, multiple choice questions focused on revising and editing.
**If at all possible, please make sure that your child is present for these two days. This benchmark is very important, as scores will be used to guide future instruction. Thank you!

 Did Someone Say...Santa??

Holiday shopping is right around the corner for us! The Holiday Store will be open next week. Our scheduled time to visit is Wednesday 10:30-11:00. Please feel free to join us or send money for your child to shop for gifts.

Grades, Grades, Grades

Yes, the expected and feared "Drop" has hit 4th Grade. At this time in the year, we start to allow students to become more responsible for their learning. During this transition process, it is not uncommon for grades to fall slightly. Reading directions effectively and following through appropriately until the end is imperative. Many times, it is not the skill that is weak, but the amount of effort put into the assignment without the teacher guiding them through it several times. Our goal is to help each student become a successful, independent learner.
