Last Minute Reminders…

We hope that all of our families had a great Spring Break!!  We look forward to seeing our students on Monday!!  A reminder that the GA Milestone Assessment begins for our 3rd, 4th and 5th graders on Tuesday, April 10th.  Because we will have multiple testing sessions going in the building and will be testing the majority of the day, we ask that we not have visitors for lunch on Tuesday through Thursday, April 10 – 12 as well as Monday & Tuesday, April 16th & 17th.  Our lunch and specials schedule is different on those days and we will have testing going on all around the building.  For that reason, we ask that we not have visitors on those days. Thank you for your understanding!!

Students with cell phones should leave them on silent or turn them off before testing..

Mrs. Jean will collect cell phones/smart watches in the morning before testing to ensure that phones don’t go off during testing.

Thanks!

Showing what you know (Georgia Milestones)…

Hey there!  I hope that you have enjoyed an amazing spring break – whether you went somewhere great or just took some time to relax!

I can’t believe how quickly this year has flown by!  We’ve only got about 6 1/2 weeks left of 4th grade.  On Tuesday, we start the 4th Grade Georgia Milestones.  You (or your child) gets to show what they have learned this year.  I have tried to make sure that students aren’t stressed or anxious about this.  I remind them that while it is important, they just need to do their very best.  If you’d like to see what the test is like or what the online platform looks like, visit Georgia Milestones Testing Tools Practice.  The students have already learned how to use the tools on the online platform and seem to be comfortable with it.

Remember, testing begins on Tuesday, April 10th.  Here is a website to help you get your child ready for testing – Test_Taking Prep Tips for Parents.  Our lunch time will be later in the day (close to 1 pm), so please make sure your child has a good, healthy breakfast and a healthy snack to bring to school each day of testing.

April 10-12th – GA Milestones (ELA)

Give Me 5!

Once again, our school is participating in the “Gimme 5 for Education” campaign to raise funds for the Cobb Schools Foundation! The Cobb Schools Foundation is the only non-profit organization that supports all our schools, staff and students in the Cobb County School District.  All funds collected will directly benefit our schools through Foundation supported scholarships, grants and programs for our schools, students and staff. 

Help support our schools & students!  Donations can be sent to the school or donate online by visiting www.CobbSchoolsFoundation.org. All students who donate will be entered into a drawing to win 2 Braves tickets. If you donate online, please share the confirmation with the teacher so your child can be entered into the drawing.

 

Read Across America Parade

This FridaReadingy, March 2nd, we will be celebrating Read Across America Day. We will be celebrating with a parade of characters. If your child would like to dress up as one of his/her favorite characters you are more than welcome to. Costumes must be brought separately and students must wear standard attire during the day. Costumes must be related to a book and students may not wear masks or bring anything that resembles a weapon (no fake swords, guns, etc). This is not mandatory, it is simply to celebrate our love of literacy.

Book Fair @ STEM Night

Parents, please don’t forget that there is the STEM Night on Thursday!  What’s even better is that there will be books available for purchase.  Please see the attached form.  See you soon!  Bring the money and forms to STEM night.  Please do not send the money to school beforehand.  If you choose, there is an option for online purchase. Thanks!

Valentine’s Day Exchange and Other Reminders

Hi!  Wednesday is Valentines Day!  Our class will do an exchange.  Please have your child bring in a decorated box or bag to receive their Valentine’s Day treats.  There are 25 children in our class.  Please do not worry about individually addressing each treat/gift.  Have your child simply do something like this:

This will help save some time (and a little Valentine’s Day chaos).

Thanks!
