Weekly Newsletter for 4/25/14

Dear Room 4 Families,

We had an eventful week back from Spring Break. Our Room 4 students presented their Famous American projects this week in front of the class and we were delighted to “meet” so many famous figures! We also took our Spring opinion writing assessment on Wednesday and Thursday.

Open house and Science Fair is next Tuesday, April 29th. The science fair starts at 5:30 and open house starts at 6:30. I look forward to seeing you then, and I highly encourage each family to visit the other classrooms at Stonebrae to see what each class is doing and to see the expectations and work in 3rd grade.
