Friday Letters

Today your child wrote their second letter in their Friday Letter notebook. They should have written about some of the many activities we participated in this week. Your child should share this notebook with you. Please respond to them in letter format and return the notebook to school on Monday. Students with responses will receive stickers for the cover of their Friday Letter notebook. This notebook will be a very special form of communication during the year and an excellent way to look back at the wonderful fourth grade year they will have had.

Thank you for your support!

Genius Hour

This year students will be engaging in time each week to pursue personal passions. Many teachers around the country are beginning to build Genius Hour time into their weekly schedules to help develop a lifelong love of learning in their students. Students have submitted proposals of big questions they're planning on researching and answering in the next couple weeks. The majority of work should be done during Genius Hour in class. Here is a brief video further explaining Genius Hour.
