Parents and Students, 

  Students should arrive at school no later than 7:50 to ensure time to go to their locker, check the boards for first and second periods, get their books, go to homeroom, copy their homework, order their lunch and be present for devotions before first period at 8:05 for their first class! Parents, please sign your child’s homework pad nightly, making sure they have completed the assignment. If they forgot a book or paper, just write a note and still sign it. FOLDERS will be sent home each Monday with their papers. Please keep the papers; look over them with your child, sign the back of the folder, and return it to the homeroom teacher on Tuesday. 

In Him, 

Your Fourth Grade Teachers

2nd Semester Parent Orientation Night Notes

Fourth Grade Enrichment Survey

From Mrs Bass:

We begin our Recorder Karate curriculum this week. Here's what you need to know:

  • ALL students need to have a simple pocket folder labeled with their name and should bring it back and forth to music each week. This will hold their practice music and other handouts.
  • Students who already have 2 Cambridge recorders at home should bring one of them to class this week to use as their classroom recorder. Make sure it is labeled with their name and in either a recorder case or a Ziploc bag. New recorders that students ordered will be handed out this week.
  • My suggestion for practice time is 10 minutes a day, 5 days a week. This will allow your child to build skills and be successful on their instrument and music. Zero practice = zero improvement
  • Extra resources can be found on YouTube>Recorder Karate>type in the specific song.
