Ms. Howell’s 4th Grade Class
August 22, 2013
It was so nice to see many of you at Curriculum Night last night. Thank you for taking the time out of your schedules to come and hear about the curriculum we will be covering this year. If you were unable to attend, I will post copy of the Powerpoint on the website and send you an e-mail with it attached. You will also find copies of paperwork for the BYOD in your child’s Friday folder. As always, if you ever have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
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 this Friday, August 29th.
· Don’t forget to return recorder orders to Mrs. Grant as soon as possible.
· School pictures are this Wednesday, August 27th. Don’t forget to send in the envelope from last week’s Friday folder if you plan to order pictures.
· Please send in BYOD forms as soon as possible. A form must be received if you plan to allow your child to bring a device from home.
