SEP's on October 25!

What an exciting week! This week we have been celebrating Red Ribbon Week. The theme is "Say No To Drugs." We had an assembly where the BYU Dunk Team came. It was a blast! Mrs. Crook had the fun opportunity to bounce the ball so the BYU athlete could grab it and dunk it. There was a lot of energy in the air as we watched them.

We also had the opportunity to have a District Dance Specialist come and teach us the 5 paragraph essay through dance. It was quite fascinating. The students did a fabulous job!

SEP's will be on October 25. Ms. Zhang and I will also do a few appointments after school on the 24. Please check the school website on Monday. Ms. Hansen will be attaching the SEP link to sign up on this day. We look forward to celebrating your child's progress with you!

The Chapter 4 Math test will be sent home today. If your child got 100%, I will be keeping it to hang up on our Good Work Wall to celebrate their accomplishment. If your child has missed any problems, PLEASE have them correct it and return it by next Wednesday. The last day that I will accept any corrected quizzes/tests or late work is next Wednesday, October 17! I will be printing report cards during Fall Break.

There will be no tutoring next week, Fall Break week, or the following week, which is SEP week. I will have math tutoring on Tuesday, October 30 at 8:00 am. Please email me if your child is interested in coming. I have thoroughly enjoyed working with these students!

Halloween is on October 31. We will be having our Halloween Class Parties at 1:30-2:30. The school parade will be at 2:45.

There will be NO HOMEWORK packets for next week. HAPPY FALL BREAK! The only thing the students will need to do is one Aleks Math assignment online. They need to do it between Friday, October 12- Wednesday, October 17. Their scores are sent to me on the computer.

Also, we are working on Animal Reports in class right now. PLEASE ask your child what animal they chose to research. Please help your child print 2 small pictures of their animals and 1 or 2 small pictures of their animal habitats. This will go on their report foldable.

Thank you so much for your help and support! Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. Please check your child's grades on SIS. Each child is working hard and I look forward to meeting with each of you in a couple of weeks at SEPs to help celebrate and find ways to reach higher academic goals! Please give your child a high five and a hug for their hard work!

Field Trip, Math Game, and Grades!

We had a fabulous field trip to the Utah Daughters of Pioneers Museum in Springville! The students were able to do a treasure hunt and play a fun bingo game as they learned interesting facts about Utah. Thank you to all of the parent helpers who came with us. We appreciate all of your help!

Students are working hard to find the multiples of different numbers. We had a fast-paced, energetic math race to see how well each student new their multiples and could match a picture representation to each number. The students worked together with their teammates and had a lot of fun!

PLEASE make sure ALL corrected quizzes/tests or any assignments are handed in by Wednesday, October 17. I will be sending report cards home on Monday, October 22. 
We are truly grateful to have such a great group of students and parents to work with. It is such a pleasure to be a part of Sage Creek!

Red Ribbon Week!

First, we have our walking Field Trip scheduled for this Friday, October 5. Please make sure that your child is wearing good walking shoes and has a jacket. If the weather is rainy, there is a chance that we will have to reschedule for another day. We are going to see what this unpredictable weather brings.

Next week is Red Ribbon Week!
Monday: Students will wear red bracelets.
Tuesday: Students can dress like a Superhero.
Wednesday: Wear Neon-- Too bright to do drugs
Thursday: Wear red
Friday: Wear School Spirit-- Going to and loving school is what heroes do

Please make sure that all Aleks homework assignments are completed by each Friday. We have SEP conferences October 25 and a few appointments on October 24. Please check SIS and make sure all grades are in.

I will be doing Math Tutoring next week on Wednesday October 10. Please email me if your child is interested in coming. I will NOT be doing any tutoring Fall Break week October 15-17 or the week of SEP's, October 22-26. Please mark on your calendar that the next tutoring day will be on Tuesday, October 30.

Please continue to work with your child on their multiplication facts. I am seeing progress with the students' fluency, which is fantastic! In math we have been working on fact families, multiples, and factors. The students are completing their opinion essays and the students will be starting to research and write about an animal that they would like to learn more about. This week we are also learning about adjectives.

It has been a wonderful week and I look forward to seeing all of the cute little spooks at Halloween!

Happy Fall!

The weather is starting to cool down, so please have your child bring jackets if needed. I have heard a few students say they are really cold outside in the morning.

The school soccer tournament began this week for those students who signed up to play. It is so fun to see our 4th graders compete against the other grades. They are doing a fantastic job!

Tomorrow the students will be receiving their Ch. 2 Math Test. Please have them correct any mistakes and return it to me for a higher score. I want to make sure that they each correct any misunderstandings.

I will be sending the darling baby pictures back home with each student this Friday in their homework folder. Thank you so much for sharing their adorable baby pictures. Everyone in the school has enjoyed trying to guess who each baby picture is.

Also, please make sure your child has completed all their Aleks homework assignments each week. They are able to earn 20 tickets for our class auction if their homework is completed on time.

PARENT HELP NEEDED! Next Friday, October 5, the students in Ms. Zhang and Mrs. Crook's classes will be walking to the Daughter of Utah Pioneer Museum. We will leave right after lunch at 12:20 and will be gone all afternoon. The museum will have different rotations for the students. This experience correlates with our 4th Grade Social Studies Unit. We need 2 parent helpers to help walk with us to the museum and you will be in charge of one of the groups. Please email us if you are interested. We will take the first two people who respond. Thank you SO MUCH! Also, please make sure your child wears good tennis shoes on this day. It will be a fun day.

Last, math tutoring for next week will be on Tuesday, October 2 at 8:00 am. I have a meeting on Wed. and I will not be able to do it on this day. If you are interested, please let me know! I have loved working with your child in a small group setting.

We are starting on our multiplication unit in math. PLEASE have your child practice the basic multiplication facts. This will help build their confidence as we will be using these multiplication facts throughout the rest of the school year.

This week we have started our Guided Reading groups! We are in full swing with juggling many different subjects. The children are working hard and are such a delight!

Please save and send your box tops to school. Thank you!

Important dates to mark on your calendar.
