At long last the 4th grade students have completed all of the NYS Testing. It has been a long haul and everyone is glad that they are over so we can enjoy the remainder of the school year.
On Monday we are looking forward to Field Day and the Student Council pizza luncheon and DJ. It looks like the weather will cooperate! Students should wear their field day T-shirts if they purchased one and also, it is recommended to bring a beach towel to sit on at lunch. Water for field day is also suggested.
On Wednesday, all the 4th grade classes are off to Ellis Island. Your child should have brought home a letter this past Thursday explaining all the details of the trip.
In class we are reading Letters From Rifka, the story of a family immigrating to America. It is a wonderful book and the children seem to be enjoying it. They are also beginning to understand the challenges that the immigrants faced upon arriving in America.
