Hello Parents and welcome back!
Leader of the Week Spotlight: AgustinAgustin is our next leader of the week! We can't wait to learn more about him!
Hello Parents and welcome back!
Thank you for your patience with grades and updates last week. That cold really knocked me down. Also, a big big thank you to parents who graded work and came in to help. I COULD not have done it without you.
Grades are almost up to date, you can check them right now if you would like. However, some students found work in their dockets today and/or on the no name wall. These assignments will be added today, and I will be sending out emails after school.
Today in class, I put up a slide of all the work that should have been turned in over the last two weeks. Then, I passed back the graded work I had, and students checked the list to see what they were missing. Some students found work in their dockets, and turned them in. There are over 20 assignments on the no name wall, so if your child is STILL missing work after this afternoon, I would have them check there.
I will be printing out missing assignment lists for students first thing tomorrow morning.
This week is Spirit Week, tomorrow students can wear a school colored shirt ( Navy Blue, Kelly Green, White) to school with school uniform bottoms.
PARENT TEACHER CONFERENCES:
Conferences are technically from Oct 11th-Oct 13th, however I would like to be able to meet with all of you, and I understand afternoon work schedules so I have also opened up THIS FRIDAY, the 6th.
Conferences will run about 15 minutes, with 5 minutes in between to allow for time to wrap up and prepare for the next conference. Please try your best to be on time, if you miss your time, we will have to re-schedule or conference via telephone so we can stay on track with the appointment times. I know that things come up, so if you do miss your appointment or come late, please email me so we can schedule a make up time. It is important to me, that I meet with all of you to check in and share how your child is doing, and what you would like to see continue/change.
Please sign up for a time that works best with your schedule, be sure to mark your calendar since they are still a few weeks away. I will send home reminders the week of conferences. Friday, February 13tth will be a makeup day if needed. Please email if the times below do not work with your schedule, and we can arrange a better time.

Please let me know if none of the times work for you, and we can set up another time to meet. My goal is to meet with everyone.
Thank you again for your support,

I had such a great first day getting to know each of your kiddos! They are already learning so much about what being a 4th grader looks like. Today we went over general procedures and classroom/school routines. Throughout the week we will be collaborating on various projects like our class mission, what we expect from each other and so much more.
Benchmark assessments will also begin this week. These assessments will help me get a better understanding as to where your child is in the various subjects. They will also be taking different surveys and interest inventories so that we can understand how they like to learn and how they like to show what they have learned. If you still have the green parent survey from back to school night ( if you were unable to make it your child brought this home today) please return that by Friday at the latest.
We will be starting our About ME bag project tomorrow IN CLASS. Please send in a GROCERY SIZE brown paper bag and any materials, photos, art supplies, etc that your child would like to use by tomorrow. I also have a few supplies like construction paper, markers, paint, glue, colored pencils, and crayons. I was able to pick up a few extra bags, just in case.
Lastly, students do NOT have any homework this week. They may bring home activities that are unfinished from class. IF they do have unfinished classwork that needs to be finished it will be in their UNFINISHED classwork folder (YELLOW) at the very front of their docket. It will also be written on their MONTHLY PLANNER LOG that is green and kept at the front of their docket. All other folders have classwork assignments that will be continued in class. PLEASE DO NOT make students finish any work in any of the other folders at home.
HW will start next week, and consists of AT LEAST 4 nights of Reading, 20 minutes a night and any unfinished classwork. If students have spelling words next week, they will also be encouraged to study them at home, however they will not have any mandatory Spelling HW to turn back in. I will go over studying strategies with students next week.
Please also check the blog for updates and info, like the Parent Volunteer sign up link. Please email me or call if you have any questions or concerns. I am looking forward to an awesome year!

I am so excited to start another school year at Ascent Academies of Utah, West Jordan. I look forward to meeting you and your kiddo at Back to School night on Monday, August 21st from 5:30-7:00 pm.
Please click HERE for a copy of the 4th grade supply list. I know that back to school shopping can add up very quickly, so the 4th grade team has listed materials based on what students will NEED that first week. While lined notebook paper is listed under needed, we do not need any right now for our classroom.
Other supplies that will be used throughout the school year are listed as wish list items. These wishlist items are NOT needed the first week, and can be donated any time throughout the year. Please make sure your child puts their name on the composition notebooks ONLY. All other supplies will be shared, so individual pencil boxes will not be used.
Students in my classroom will need to bring in a set of headphones for their personal use. They will be labeled for each student, kept in the classroom during the school year, and sent back home at the end of the year. For storage purposes we are asking for earbud type headphones that fit into the ear, instead of the kind that fit over the ear.
Can you believe the summer is winding down already? As I am getting ready for the year to start, I find myself getting more and more excited to meet my new group of 4th graders. As your family prepares for the new school year, please reference the supply list below for classroom supplies. Please note, that your student only needs 5 items. : )
The 4th grade team has compromised a short list of Needed Supplies for your child to use this year. Please DO NOT go off of the lists you see at various stores, they will not need all those items. We have also provided a Wish List of items for projects throughout the year. Students will have access to all classroom supplies regardless of donations made.
Supplies needed for School
Wish List (Not needed, but can be donated any time throughout the year)
Please DO NOT write your name on any of the supplies except for the notebooks, these supplies will be shared with everyone in the room.
IN 4th grade, we are transitioning into learning how to be independent and share classroom supplies. Their will be supply baskets at each table, so we will NOT be using pencil boxes or bags in 4th grade. If students bring these in, they will be sent home.
