Mrs. Wadsworth's 4th Grade Class News

Welcome to the new school year, 2019-2020. Welcome also to the Fabulous Fourth Grade! I look forward to meeting you on Monday, August 12th from 1:30 to 4:00 for Popsicle Pop-In. You will find out your child's teacher, be able to sign up for PTO, and get new spirit wear in the gym. You will then be able to come to your child's classroom to sign in and complete some brief paperwork, a transportation form so I will know how your child will be going home after school. You are welcome to bring your child's supplies on Monday the 12th as well if you have already purchased them. Once you have filled out the paperwork and returned them to me, I will give you a ticket which you will be able to exchange for your Popsicle outside of the gym on your way out. Please enjoy your treats outside.

All parents will receive paperwork for free and reduced lunch. This is not to insult anybody! We want to make sure that all students and their families that may need assistance purchasing food at school are having their needs met. Please complete the paperwork and return to either your teacher (me) or the school cafeteria. The form will be processed and you will be notified by the cafeteria if you qualify. This is done discretely so nobody (including me) will know if you are receiving free or reduced lunch. If the school has a high enough percentage of free and reduced lunch families, then the school will qualify for Title 1 Federal money. This money could be used for additional staff and supplies for the school.

It will be important for your child to have a set of headphones or earbuds to use with their Chrome Book at school. They are on the list below, but if you checked the list on the school main page, they are listed way down at the bottom of the page and are easy to miss. Please do not send in expensive headphones or earbuds. Your child will be the only person using them, so if they break, you will be responsible to send in another set to replace them. They will go home with your child at the end of the year.

I look forward to working with all of you this year. If you ever have any questions or concerns, I would love to hear them so they can be addressed. Please send me an e-mail at merry.wadsworth@rrps.net, call me at 338-2526 ext. 307, send a note in with your child, or see me in person before school.
