The students are trying to get in a good work habit established. 4th grade is a bit of a shocker for some! A bit more getting used to, but we'll get through it.
I have extended the due date for the scholastic book orders until Wed, Aug 24.
Our reading story is "Donovan's Word Jar" for this week. The following are the vocabulary words from the story: leisure, disappointment, perseverance, uneasy, compromise, and chortle.

2 1/2 more days!

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the parents for your help and guidance throughout the school year. It takes teamwork to accomplish all that needs to be completed. Thanks for your positive encouragement and suggestions. I would also like to thank you for all of your generous donations in the supplies needed throughout the school year. I have surely been blessed!

Thank you Mrs. Franke for volunteering in our class once a week. That was such a great help! In addition, Mrs. Franke taught 5 lessons of Regions in Junior Achievement!

I will surely miss all of our students. We had such a great year! We will be celebrating our accomplishments with a party on Tuesday. I will bring pizza and if you are able, you may send any kind of snack to share with the class.

Again, thanks for a great year!
