Newsletter 11 Week of October 26, 2013 Fabulous Fourth Grade 1. I am still looking for parent volunteers to help in the classroom. We could use volunteers from 2:25-3:00 daily. 2. The PTO fundraiser in Saturday November 1. It will be an evening filled with fun, fellowship, and fundraising for our great school. I hope to see you there! 3. All Saints Day will be celebrated on Friday November 7. The children will dress up as the saint of their choice. I have also assigned a timeline and research report for All Saints Day. The time line is due Monday November 3 and the report is due Friday November 7. Most of the assignment will be completed in class. Whatever the children do not finish in class they will have to finish at home. Guidelines for the timeline and the report ae attached. 4. In math, we will have a test on two digit multiplication. Some of the children have mastered this skill others are still working on it. I will continue to give two digit multiplication tests to your child until he/she scores at least an 85%. 5. Thursday is the Race for Lizzie. The children can wear their Race for Lizzie tee shirts, gym uniforms, or any other SHA gear. This race will be similar to the Fun Run. The children will be outside during lunchtime. Please have them bring a blanket, so they can picnic. 6. Parts have been assigned for the Thanksgiving play. The children will have to memorize their parts and provide their own costumes. I will be sending home more details about costumes and props next week.

All Saints Day Projects All Saints’ Day Timeline: Due Monday November 3 Use the two sentence strips to complete two timelines. The first timeline should include the significant events of the saint’s life. Above each event place a small picture of that event. Pictures maybe drawn or computer generated. The second timeline should include significant events in your life that have brought you closer to God. Above each event place a small picture of that event. Pictures maybe drawn, computer generated, or a photograph. The last event should be a picture of you in your saint’s costume. All Saints’ Day Report: Due Friday Novmebr 7 You will be writing the reports in school. The reports will be parallel reports. They will compare your saint’s life to your own life. Completed reports should be written in cursive or typed. You will need a cover page for your report. The cover must have a picture of your saint and a picture of you dressed as your saint. If you cannot take a picture of yourself in your saint costume I will take your picture on November 7. Just make sure you leave room on the cover for the picture. The title should be Saint (enter the name of you saint) and Me.
