4th Grade Weekly Overview

Week of March 4th through March 8th   
I hope that everyone had a nice weekend. The trimester ends this Friday. Please make sure that your student stays current on assignments and studying for tests.

We begin our observance of the season of Lent this week. To prepare, we will participate with the SPN community in the Burning of the Palms on the school yard on Tuesday morning after morning assembly. We will observe Ash Wednesday with the SPN community during our all school mass. Students create their Lenten commitments. Please ask your student about their Lenten commitment. CSR rice bowls went home last Friday. Students are expected to incorporate the CSR rice bowl into their Lenten commitments. They will be reflecting on their CSR rice bowl participation as part of our service learning this year. Please make sure your student uses their CSR rice bowl.

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
