The fourth grade students will start their state reports next week with the help of Mrs. Kuehl who taught fourth grade at St. Stan's, but has since retired. Mrs. Kuehl will join our class each week to provide a new lesson. Mrs. Kuehl has a great passion for teaching social studies. The research report will continue throughout the year using short assignments. At the end of the school year, all information and assignments are gathered into one book report.
They are truly a beautiful sight!

No spelling list or packet this week!
A spelling list and vocabulary packet will be sent home with your child every Monday. We will not have spelling the first week of school. The spelling/vocabulary packet is due on or before Friday. On Wednesday, the class will take a pretest and it will be graded and sent home on Wednesday. If your child receives 100% on the pretest, he/she does not need to take the final test on Friday.
We are reviewing the basic strokes within cursive letter formation such as downcurves, curve forward, double curves, over & undercurves, and slanted loops.
