Week 24 (FEB 11-15, 2008)

Progress reports will be sent home Monday.

Our Valentine’ Day party will be held Friday, February 15. Please see the Room Mom’s letter calling for volunteers. Also, a list of all fourth grade student names is available here for valentines.

Science. An in-school field trip permission slip for the Denver Museum of Science and Nature’s sheep lung dissection labs, slated for February 21, was included in the Monday Folder (and is also available here). Please return the permission slip and $10 by this Friday, February 15.

President’s Day. No school, next Monday, February 18.

Each week, parents should look for these two things:

  • *This Week’s Assignments (in the sidebar on the right), and
  • the current issue of my classroom newsletter, Mr. T’s Tattler

Absolutely no nuts, raspberries, pineapple, or baked goods containing milk in the classroom at anytime. This includes products your kids bring in daily for their snack. Airborne particles and residue on hands, clothing, desks, and in waste containers are of dire concern. Thanks for your help.

No Fun Friday Snack Helpers this week due to our Valentine’s Day celebration.

Math 54. Problem sets 83 – 86 will be due as homework this week. They will test this Friday.

Shurley Grammar. Students will continue classifying pattern 2 sentences. There will be no quiz this week.

All testing in my classes will occur this Friday as follows:

  • Daily Oral Language (DOL). They’ll test on the sentences edited each morning in class. Click on the links for:
  • Practice sentences
