Two More Days

It was wonderful to see so many of you at our awards ceremony today.  I know it meant a lot to your children to have you there.  They had a very successful year in fourth grade.  I am proud of them for all their awards, grades, test scores, maturity, personal growth and individual successes.  They have grown so much this year.  I will truly miss each of my students, and I wish I had more time with them.

Tomorrow is our autograph signing afternoon. In order for a child to get signatures on anything other than a yearbook or paper, I need written permission from a parent.  If you still want a yearbook, there are copies available in the front office.  They will accept a check or cash. 

Thursday is our last day, and it is a full day.  Thursday is free dress for those 24 students who earned their AR point goal for May.  We will be watching movies and playing games that day, and students will be receiving their report cards.

Two more days.....

Memorial Day

We do have school on Monday, as one of our inclement weather make up days.  Students are allowed to wear read, white, and blue patriotic themed clothing, just be sure it follows LCISD dress code guidelines.  Students are encouraged to bring folding chairs or towels, and a packed lunch, as we will be having a special picnic Monday.  We will be watching a patriotic movie and doing themed activities that day, including a school wide sing along.  If your child goes to a daycare after school, be sure to verify that the daycare will be open prior to Monday.  As always, if there will be a transportation change, please inform me in writing. 

Happy Memorial Day!

Calling All Library Books

I have just a few end of the week reminders.  Mrs. Preas is asking for all library books to be returned tomorrow.  We are having a capitals quiz over the Midwestern region Friday.  Students need to bring $1.00 or a pet item donation to attend the Talent Show Friday.  Students get out at 11:30 on Friday.  Please be sure to send written notice if there will be a change in transportation.  We do have school Monday.

It's Great To Be Back!!

Wow!  What a crazy year it has been.  I have been so happy to be back to my classroom with all of my sweet students.  Thanks to all the thoughtful parents who sent such nice gifts and notes during Teacher Appreciation Week.  It was really unexpected and truly made my return feel special. 

Please be adivsed that our school year is not over yet.  I am still taking grades, and a stack of graded papers were sent home today.  Please continue your normal routines at home so that your children can stay successful in the classroom.  Be advised that we have a quiz Wednesday over the state capitals of the Northeast region of The United States, and a quiz over the Midwestern region Friday.  Students were given many study aids, maps, bookmarks, and lists.  Check out our favorite song on You Tube as a study aid as well.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_E2CNZIlVIg

The Important Dates tab has also been updated as a way for you to keep track of all the special end of the year events. 

Congratulations to everyone who made AR free dress in May.  We worked hard to achieve our goal!

4th Grade Swimming

Dickinson 4th graders will participate in the LCISD swimming program January 15-28. Every 4th grader in the school district participates in the program, and it is required for their PE credit that 9 weeks.

            Last week, your child brought home a green permission slip. Please sign and return this permission slip as soon as possible. Expect another green letter to go home explaining the guidelines for the swimming program.

            The coaches at the natatorium have a strict dress code that the students must follow in order to participate. Girls MUST have a one piece swimsuit, not a tankini. Shirts, including swim shirts, are not allowed.  Girls must wear their hair up and out of their face. There are no toys allowed. Students do not need to bring a towel, as they are provided at the natatorium. Please be sure to send your child’s swimsuit in a plastic bag. This is always a fun and exciting program for 4th graders!
