Greetings to my students and parents! . Parents, I am here for you if you need me. Please feel free to contact me if you ever need to meet or just touch base about anything. I can be reached by email, Class Dojo, or write a note in your child's agenda.  Again, if you ever need anything, please let me know. :)

We will cover a lot this year. For most nights students will need to simply look over their science and Virginia Studies notes which can be found in their notebooks for those subjects. Thank you for your help with that. Also, solpass is a website that will cover science and Virginia Studies content in a fun way through games and activities. The password is unicorn. :) 

We are studying the following SOLs presently:

Math 4.3 Decimals:

4.3a Read, write, and identify decimals through the thousandths place value

4.3b Round decimals to the nearest whole number

4.3c Compare and order decimals 

Science 4.3 Electricity:

a)    conductors and insulators;

b)    basic circuits;

c)     static electricity;

d)    the ability of electrical energy to be transformed into light and motion, and to produce heat;

e)     simple electromagnets and magnetism; and

f)     historical contributions in understanding electricity.

We will have our first 4-H class this week on Wednesday, September 11th. 4-H is a wonderful class led by Mr. Kevin Irvin. He will conduct hands-on science lessons to support our curriculum. The students always love when he visits!
