The Final Week

Hello Moms and Dads,

As we begin the last week of 4th grade, there are not enough ways to say how proud I am of our 4th graders this year. For the last nine months, every student has grown like a weed and they have truly learned A LOT in all subject areas. Social skills have changed and even some bad habits are gone. Like you, I am ready for a slower change of pace right now, but I am certainly not ready to let these awesome 4th graders go. Each one had my heart at hello and now saying “good-bye” will not be easy. This group of fine students will always be near and dear to my heart, and if you ever need anything from me, please do not hesitate at all to ask me.

Academically, we will finish the grammar book this week along with the chapters on fractions. I was hoping to cover some geometry this week, but time is not cooperating with our schedule. However, during the summer, I highly suggest that your student practice any workbook pages that we were not able to cover during the course of the year because in fifth grade, your student should be familiar with most of the concepts that we couldn’t cover this year.

This week, we have a few more summer birthdays to celebrate, our End of the Year party Thursday afternoon, and finally on Friday, the Honors Ceremony at 9:30. Please join us Friday morning as we celebrate our 8th graders as they leave for high school and cheer on those students who will receive awards for their hard work and perseverance throughout the year. When the ceremony is over, you and your student can begin your summer vacation wherever you choose. Just let me know that you are finding another place to celebrate the end of this great year.

Until then, enjoy the rest of your weekend, and I’ll see you soon.

Yours truly,
Cheryl Leagan
