Valentine's Day is coming up this Thursday. 303 will have a small break in the day to exchange valentines and do some fun Valentine's math activities, but we will not be having a full party. If students would like to bring valentines they may, but they need to make sure they have one for everyone (27 students), and students cannot bring food of any kind.
The 4th grade music and dance performance is coming up! It will be Friday January 18th at 9am in the gym. Please read the attached letter for more details and pay careful attention to what your child should wear according to what class they're in!
If you have any questions, please let me know!
As CPS transitions to a new data management system, it is required that parents update their email addresses so that they will be able to access student information within the new system in January of 2019. All parents must check and update their email addresses, even if you think yours is already correct. You must fill out a separate form for each of your children. This must be done before Friday December 14th.
Here is the link to the form:
If you have any questions, please let me know!
Thanks to all who turned in permission slips for the Design Build Test after school program. We are unable to accept every student who applied, and preference has been given to those who turned in their slip on the requested date, and whose paragraphs directly addressed the question asked on the permission slip. If your child has been selected to participate, a confirmation slip will go home with them today. Please let me know if you have any questions.
Parent Teacher Conferences are Wednesday November 14th. Unfortunately Ms Michel and I only have time to meet with the parents of students in our homeroom class on this day. If you are a 306 parent, please email me if you'd like to meet and we can set up an alternate time. If you are a 303 parent, please visit the link to sign-up for a slot with me.
As always, if you have any questions, please email me.

Halloween is fast approaching. The 4th grade team has fun educational Halloween activities planned for the day.
As a grade level, we will be working on making the wands that have selected our students based on their character traits. Wands are going home (if they have not made it already) so that students can shape them into the wand they want. The students know not to make their wands sharp. Each student has a piece of sandpaper, but you are welcome to supplement the sanding. The wands are due back Monday October 29th to ensure we have them for the activities on Wednesday the 31st.
Since we have a Harry Potter theme, students are invited to dress up as anything related to the Harry Potter series. This is not mandatory. Fourth grade does not typically get to dress up. We have been given permission for students to dress up only as it relates to the Harry Potter curriculum.
The party portion including the snacks will be had while students work on the wands. Thank you in advance to all of our wonderful parent volunteers who are giving up their time to help us create wands!
Here is a list of all the volunteer opportunities coming up! Please let me know if you're available! If you'd like to volunteer, please email both me AND our room rep (Christina Kreidler - firstname.lastname@example.org).
