Ms. Howell’s 4th Grade Class
August 15, 2014
What a busy week! This week the students started switching classes for content area. You will hear more about this next week at Curriculum Night. Curriculum Night is this Thursday, August 21st for grades 3-5. I look forward to seeing many of you there as we discuss what we will be learning throughout the year. If you are unable to attend then I will email the powerpoint and other information to you, so that you will be informed.
Below are just a few reminders/notes that you will find in the Friday folder:
· Don’t forget to be working on completing the Media Center bookmark for August. All bookmarks are due on August 29th.
· If you requested a car rider number, but did not get your tag, they are included in this week’s Friday folder for you.
