We had a great first week in The Game of Fourth Grade. I look forward to seeing you tomorrow night at Back to School Night- Meet the Teacher. The evening will start with a Band Parent Meeting at 6:00pm for any parents of students who are interested in joining band. At 6:30pm the PTA meeting will begin in the gym. During this meeting they will discuss events for the school year, introduce the teachers and staff, and then they will send you to your child’s classroom for a brief presentation by the teacher. Please note that I am still looking for a room parent and chaperones for our field trip to the Big E.
Here is what we will be learning this week in our game.
