Wednesday Homework

L.A. Writing – Burger Paragraph Due tomorrow


There are many reasons that I love to teach.  First of all, I love to teach because I love being at school.  Another reason I love teaching is that the days go by quickly.  A third reason I love to teach is because I love seeing a student understand something new. Finally, I love to teach because I love to be around kids.  These are just a few reasons I love to teach.

September Newsletter

Welcome to Grade 4!  We are so excited for this new school year and we are looking forward to working with such a wonderful group of children and their parents.

This class newsletter is intended to provide parents with information regarding classroom rules and expectations as well as schedules and dates of regular and special classroom activities. This is going to be a positive and productive year for the students.

Some scheduling information to assist you to organize your child’s day:

  1. P.E. is on Monday and Wednesday. The P.E. teacher’s name is Mr. Pietrusinski. Running shoes must be worn (sandals or hard-soled shoes are not permitted on the gym floor). Running shoes should not mark the gym floor. Students should come in their P.E. gym strip to school on Monday and Wednesday. Students are required to change into full school uniform after the P.E. class. Shoes for PE can be kept at school in a bag hung on their hook. Students need black shoes for uniform and PE shoes (separate shoes please)


  1. Library- Tuesday morning: Books need to be at school for exchange or renewal each week.


  1. Music-Monday, Tuesday:  Mrs Harris will be teaching music.


  1. French-Monday and Wednesday: The French teacher’s name is Mr. Balintona


  1. Mandarin-Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday: The Mandarin teacher’s name is Mrs. Hsu


  1. Mass-Friday at 9:00 a.m.

All students have daily planners or agendas. Students will record homework and unfinished class work daily and will be asking parents to initial agendas every day after nightly reading and/or work is completed. Expect this agenda daily and help students get this routine established as soon as possible. Parents may use the agenda to write brief notes, etc. to the teacher. The teacher will do the same if need be.

A reminder for students who have not registered for the after school Chinese/Interest class: Students will be waiting for you in the playground to be picked up between 3:30 and 4:00 p.m. every day except for Wednesday (2:30-3:00 p.m.). If the weather is inclement after school, there will be an indoor dismissal. Students will be waiting for pick up in their own classroom.

When sending money to school, please be sure it is in a sealed envelope or baggie and includes your child’s full name and what it is for as loose money gets lost.

Classroom expectations are:

  1. Listen carefully.
  2. Follow directions.
  3. Work quietly. Do not disturb others who are working.
  4. Respect others. Be kind with your words and actions.
  5. Respect school and personal property.
  6. Work and play safely.

Please be sure your child is dressed appropriately for the weather, especially when the weather is cold and wet. All students go outside for all recess times unless the weather is severe.

Thank you for taking the time to read this newsletter. If you have any questions or require further explanation, please contact the teacher. We are looking forward to working with your child this year!
