Thank You

First Day of School

Our first day of school is in the books!  A big thanks to all the parents for getting the forms in the yellow folder returned to school!  Y'all did AWESOME. 
Today, we practiced (and then practiced some more) our daily routines.  It's important to establish familiar routines for our students, so they stay safe and LEARN :) We will continue to practice our classroom procedures while slowly integrating the curriculum.
By the end of the week, your child should be able to explain the difference between a Growth Mindset and a Fixed Mindset.  Be sure to quiz them on Friday ;)

Gingerbread House

STEAM Activity

Dear Parents-

 On Friday, December 16th, we will be setting aside some time for students to participate in a STEAM (science, technology, arts, engineering, and math) activity designing and building gingerbread houses in celebration of the winter season.

In order to do so, we need to request a few supplies from those of you that are willing to donate. Below you will see a list of suggested items. If you are able, please send in any of the items listed for the students to use in the construction of their houses. Please send all donations in by Monday, December 5th.

 If you are not able to donate at this time, we understand. As always, all students will still be invited to participate.

 Thank you so much for your support during a busy time of year! We wish all of you a wonderful holiday season with your families.

If you have any questions, please contact us.

Happy Holidays!

FSHE Fourth Grade Team
