Dear Third and Fourth Grade Families:
We just wanted to send a few reminders home and some upcoming events:
Field Trip: We will be going to the Echo Center on June 15th. Please remember
to hand in your child’s permission slip form with the $6.50 admission fee so
we can plan ahead and make sure we are all set for this fun day! (return to
classroom teachers no later than June 1, 2018)
Calendar Fundraiser: This seems to be going really well for students. They are
so excited to see their final total of money raised for Project Aware. Calendar
order forms are due on May 31st so we can start making calendars and getting
them to people by June 8th! Once they are done we will send out instructions
for collecting and returning money so we can get this out to Project Aware.
Thank you for your help with this!
Spring Concert: This will happen in CSPAC on Wednesday May 30th. The
concert will start at 6Pm and students should report directly to CSPAC at
5:45pm. Any questions please email Leah at email@example.com.
Exhibition of Learning: Students conclusion of ocean learning will take place
on Thursday May 31st. This will be an evening performance for families.
Please have students in CSPAC by 5:50pm to get ready for this exhibition.
Also, it would be most helpful if everyone who is coming to see this amazing
work takes a seat upon arrival. This will help students get ready and start right
at 6pm. Thank you for your help with this!
Homework: This will be the LAST week of homework for third and fourth
As always if you have any questions or concerns please email us, give us a
call, or stop in the classroom.
Ms. Daye and Mrs. Raynor
Third and Fourth Graders will be making a visit in small groups to
the Cabot Public Library to encourage summer reading on June 7
and June 14.
Summer is a very important time for students to build their reading
skills, expand their knowledge of the world, and simply enjoy good
stories. Kathleen Hoyne, the public librarian, will introduce their
fabulous summer reading program and the Dorothy's List Book
Award, as well as help students obtain a library card if needed.
To generate excitement for reading among 4th through 8th grade
Vermont students, each year 30 of the best new elementary/middle
level books are selected for the Dorothy's List Book Award program, and those who read at least 5, vote for their favorite at the end of the
year. There is a statewide radio program and blog to discuss the
books during the year, and a celebration with the winning author.
Students can get a jump start on the list or any other book for summer
reading at the Cabot Public Library.
Ask your child about the book we have been reading here at school,
Chester and Gus. It is a wonderful story about a boy and a dog, and
third and fourth graders' first introduction to next year's selections.
Thank you for supporting the young readers at your house!
