New Fourth Grade Blog

Parents and Students

In past years we had one fourth grade blog.  
We are moving back to that format.  
You should not have a problem, because the new blog is the same format as this blog. 
You will be able to access all fourth grade information and teacher pages from this one location.  

Please take Christmas break to get familiar with the new web address:

Specific instructions are on the new blog.

Let me know if you have questions.


Hey Class,
Here is the link to the full length Jim Carrey Disney - A Christmas Carol.  It would not let me embed the video, but you can click on this link to take you to the full length movie on youtube.  
Remember, to have a parent help you and don't click on any suggested videos at the end.

Fox Field Trip

We have had quite a few students out this week with sickness.
You can print a copy of the Field Trip letter that went home today.
PLEASE let your teacher know as soon as possible if your student will not be 
attending the field trip because of a sickness.  
Send her an email:
agudnason@gwa.com
 kfolsom@gwa.com
 swardell@gwa.com
as soon as possible or by 8:00 on Wednesday morning.  
Feel free to send her a text message as well if this is how you communicate with your child's teacher.

Here is a link to the information letter that went home on Tuesday, Dec. 16th.

A Peek at our Week - Dec. 15 - 19

Awesome Job Fourth Grade with the Christmas Musical!
You guys were wonderful!  Your hard work paid off.  Thanks for doing an awesome job of sharing the Christmas message and teaching us about how to treat others every day of the year!  I am proud of you!

Chaperon Letters
Chaperon letters went home last week.  
Chaperons, remember to send in the small attached note to let me know your plans for your child after the performance.
Chaperons, remember to pick up your ticket for the performance in the classroom with me at 8:00 that morning (Wed. 12/17) or you will have to text me upon arrival at the Fox to get your ticket from me.  The Fox will NOT let you in without this ticket.

Student Reminders for the Field Trip on Wednesday 12/17
  • Be at school by 8:00.
  • We are pulling out of the parking lot at 8:15 (hopefully with you), so please don't be late or you won't be on the bus with us!
  • You may wear Christmas attire.  You are representing GWA and Mr. Cloud asked that you be reminded to wear Sunday best.  If you are not going to wear something Christmas related, then you will need to wear a red dress code shirt or sweatshirt and khaki pants.


Busy Week Ahead
We have a busy week of learning.  Stay strong and work hard.
Your graded papers will go home on Thursday of this week in order to include all the work from last week and this week.  
Be on the look out for that.  
The return date for that will be on Friday, Dec. 19th.

Vocab. Quiz on Mon (12/15), AR test on Tue (12/16), and written test on Thur (12/18).  We are also working on a notebook project in class that will count as a test grade.  This will be done completely at school, but please make sure your child has scissors, glue, and colored pencils.  Thank you!
