February 9th Update

Hello Parents!

Only four days until our Mid-Year Break and with that said we have a busy 4 days ahead of us. We have completed our math unit on Algebra and Balanced Equations and this week we will review Long Division and review Fact Families again. Many students are not practicing their Multiplication Facts and are struggling with them in class. We continue to work on them in class as knowing these Facts help with Division.

Your students are enjoying our Literature Circles and are doing a pretty good job. I have been seeing some quality work and improvement in their writing. Literature Circles help with Informational Writing, which is a difficult writing strategy.

The students have finished their first assignment in our California History Unit, which was learning about the compass and direction. I am in the process of grading these projects and should have them returned to your student shortly. 

Finally, I am very proud to announce that our 4th Grade Class School Community Project was a huge success. As a class we elected to initiate a school wide Coin Drive to raise money for benches for the playground.  Our goal was to collect $500. The students created a presentation and slide show and went to each of the grades to present information and how each grade could help with the drive.  They also informed them that the class collecting the most money would receive a pizza party. The students were responsible for collecting, counting and rolling all the money. When all was said and done we collected a staggering $1,210.00 as a school. Obviously, we can do a little more then just benches! Now on to the important thing. Not only did the students learn how to plan, market, and successfully raise money for our School Community Project but the 4th grade class brought in the most money and are the winners of the pizza party.  I am so proud of these kids and their commitment to making their school a better place. Whether they are bringing in coins or box tops or fundraising on Shoparoo, they are excited to help and make STREAM a great school. I am so proud and honored.

Please check below for some very important dates and reminders.

I hope that you all have a fun and safe Mid-Year Break and enjoy your time together!

Mr. Williams
