Final week of February

Hello Parents,
I don’t know about you, but this school year is moving right along. As I started planning the upcoming weeks, I realized that there are only three months of school left; we are five weeks from Spring Break, less than one month from our trip to Jekyll Island, and two weeks from the 3rd book report presentations. Wow! Time certainly isn’t slowing down by any means and we still have a lot of curriculum yet to cover before May 24.

This past week was awesome because all of us had a chance to catch up on your student’s progress, maturity, and growth so far this year. I must be honest; I have grown to truly admire this group of 4th graders because each student has the desire to learn and to achieve all they can each and every day. What more can a teacher ask of her fine students?

On Monday, we will continue to learn about measuring of various types, dividing larger numbers, using adjectives, and writing stories. Please make sure your student is on time Monday morning because all of our 4th graders will discuss and decide this year’s theme for our book publishing project. Mr. Ovbey and I will help guide the discussion, but our students will be making all of the decisions regarding each step of this awesome writing project.

Oh yes, one more thing. Some students do have a little homework this weekend. If your student did not finish writing their final copy of their “Hero” story and coloring their picture in school, then this assignment needs to be completed over the weekend. On Monday, I would love to fill up the bulletin boards that are ready for these great stories and pictures.

That is it for now. I am SO ready for sunshine and warmer temperatures to return. Until then, back to grading, stitching, and enjoying the comforts of my home.

Yours truly,
Cheryl Leagan
