4th Grade News

  • It's a FULL DAY of school, Friday, January 24.


This Week in Language Arts

This Week in Science


    This week we begin our new unit:

    FOSS MAGNETISM & ELECTRICITY - Investigation 1 – The Force

    Part 1 – Investigating Magnets and Materials

    INQUIRY QUESTIONS:  What kind of materials do magnets stick to?  What happens when you bring two or more magnets together?

    OBJECTIVE: Students find that objects that contain iron stick to permanent magnets; other objects do not.  They discover that two magnets will either attract or repel one another, depending on their orientation. The agent responsible for this behavior is the magnetic force.

Extra Reminders

  • Please Check Bookbacks

    Students often accumulate materials in their bookbags that can be left at home. This can cause a big strain on the back and finding things can be a problem. You can help your child by asking them to take everything out of their bookbag on the weekend and replacing only what is required. With the exception of special projects, please use the following list to help your child stay organized: Math binder, Accordion folder, pencil case, One chapter book, and the Student Planner.

    PRIDE Cards:
    Green PRIDE cards are bound in the student planners that are send home each day. They are meant to keep you informed of any behavior issues that your child may be having at school. Please ask to see your child's planner and check to see how they are doing. Each month brings a clean card and a fresh chance to improve. The PRIDE cards should be signed by you at the end of each month.

    Graded Work

    Please be sure to empty your child's Take Home section in their Accordion Folder.  All other papers should stay in the other sections.


    If you haven't already done so, please sign up for.  We use this text messaging system to send out a quick text each day with assignments and reminders.  Really a backup system to the assignment planners that the students will be getting on the first day.  To sign up for Remind, Simply send a text to this number:   81010  and put this in the message:   @4titans202

    Assignment Planners

    Please check that your child is keeping good notes in their planner.  They should have down the homework assignments.  If you have a message please email, please do not write notes in the planner.
