4th Grade Weekly Overview

Week of March 11th through March 15th   
I hope that everyone had a nice weekend and is experiencing the beginning of a prayerful Lenten season. The trimester ended last Friday. Report cards will be sent home with students on Thursday. There is no school on Friday due to the Staff Development Day. Share and care will not be available on Friday.

Please continue to ask your student about their Lenten commitments and encourage them to actively use their CSR rice bowl. As a reminder, they will be reflecting on their CSR rice bowl participation as part of our service learning this year.

Our 4th grade class service-learning project this year is focused on raising money to make a contribution to the Guide Dogs for the Blind “Puppies with a Purpose” campaign, with the proceeds going towards their new puppy center. The 4th graders will brainstorm money generating ideas, select the idea that will produce the best result, create the project plan, and execute the plan. This is going to be a wonderful opportunity to apply math, writing, presentation, project management, and Catholic Social teaching. Please talk to your 4th grader about our project.

If you have questions or would like to discuss anything about your student, please feel free to contact me to schedule a time to meet.  I greatly appreciate your continued partnership and support in helping your student to be successful.

Peace & blessings, 

Mr. Sahlman
