Our second annual Helping Hands Day is quickly approaching. Our class will be hard at work planting a Memorial Day garden at the Falmouth Public Library followed by a cookout at Mullen Hall with other Helping Hands participants and their families. Lets hope for good weather on Friday!
This week is No Guff Week all across the Falmouth School District. Students make a commitment to be Peacebuilders and to take a stand against bullying. We had an All School Assembly yesterday and listened to songs & videos that promoted these themes.
Students at Morse Pond put together this video to demonstrate their commitment to “No Guff”.
We will be going on a driving field trip on Monday, January 28th to the Cotuit Center for the Arts to see an exhibit called Making Waves. The exhibit features local artists and all work is displayed at a kid friendly height. The exhibit is accompanied by a hands on activity. Each year a newly themed exhibit is displayed. I have taken my class to see this every year and each year is just as fantastic as the last! I know your child will enjoy this trip.
We will be leaving Mullen Hall right after recess and will return before dismissal. The trip will not impact your child’s normal dismissal plans.
Math MCAS for 4th grade students at Mullen Hall will be on May 15th & 16th. Please make sure your child comes to school on time, gets a good night’s rest, eats a healthy breakfast, and brings a water bottle and snack to school those days.
Today we are taking the 4th grade English Language Arts Long Composition test.
Next week on Tuesday, March 27th and Wednesday, March 28th will be the two sessions for English Language Arts.
We will then be done with ELA and finish up with two sessions of Math MCAS testing on Tuesday, May 15th and Wednesday, May 16th.
Please make sure your child gets plenty of rest the night before testing, eats a good breakfast that morning, and brings a water bottle and snack to school the day of the test.
Remember that we will not have school on Friday, November 11th so that we may all take some time to honor the veterans who have helped to preserve our freedom. Enjoy your day!
Our annual Halloween Parade will take place on Monday morning at around 9:30. We will walk in our costumes to the Town Hall and back. Afterwards we will have a classroom scavenger hunt to review what we have learned so far. We will also have a low key celebration in class with snacks. Please let me know if you are interested in providing a snack or drink for the whole class.
I can’t wait to see how creative you all can be. Please remember to be school appropriate when designing your costumes.
