    The fourth-grade students, along with all of C.T.A. Liberty, is participating in the third annual Read the Most Coast to Coast Accelerated Reader Quiz-taking challenge! Last year, students across the nation took 4,409,622 quizzes, shattering the previous year's one-day record. This year, the enthusiasm is so high that students may go beyond breaking the record to reach a total of 5 million quizzes!
     
    Mrs. Scott's and Mrs. Hugus's reading classes will be finishing the book, The Birchbark House, just in time for this special event. Students are also working hard to achieve their 3rd quarter AR goal by Monday, March 3. Students are encouraged to prepare to test on Friday so they can help our school participate in this record-breaking event!

  • Happy Valentine's Day!

    Posted by Erin Hugus at 2/14/2014
    Thank you for all of the donations for our parties. The students surely enjoyed all of the yummy treats! Additionally, thank you to all who attended your child's conference this week. We hope the reports were informative. We appreciate all you do to help support the success of your child.

    Our Week
    Reading & Writing: Our reading lessons continue with The Birchbark House. Omakayas and her family have moved to their winter home after having prepared all the food cache for surviving the long, cold winter. Ask your student about the special maple sugar treat Mama stashed in the cache. We're continuing our study of adjectives by finding examples of exquisite descriptive adjectives within the The Birchbark House story.
     
    Mathematics: Students completed a test this week following Lesson 80. Please ensure your child accurately completes the test review that always precedes the test. This process helps support future success.
     
    Social Studies/Science: Students completed an assessment over Unit 2: Lessons 1 & 2, covering information about the impact of the Spanish explorers on the Native Americans living in the southwest. Since completing the lessons on plant and animal classification, our science lessons will transition into plant and animal adaptation. Students can reinforce topics discussed in class by viewing videos on our science and social studies resource page. Follow the link to the left.
     
    Calendar
    2/14 - AR 75% Milestone
    2/17 - President's Day - No School
    3/3 - AR 100%

    We have several weeks of school before spring break. As we continue to instruct our district curriculum, it is vital your student puts forth his or her best effort. Students should give their full attention during all lessons. Write and initial this quote in your student’s agenda by Wednesday and he or she will receive a special treat! “The first duty to love is to listen.” ~Paul Tillich
