Dear Fourth Grade Families,

Today, students took a quiz on comparing decimal numbers. This is a short unit in 4th grade, but an important foundational concept for 5th grade where we multiply and divide with decimal numbers. I sent home corresponding homework today to review this skill. I kindly ask that you check in with your child regarding this concept. Their homework is due on Wednesday, and if you feel that your child needs additional practice they can work on skills Y.1-Y.11 on IXL.

We have MAP testing next week, May 13-17th for reading, writing and math. If you know that your child will be absent next week, please email me so I can arrange testing make-up days for them. Also, I have scheduled our last field trip to the SPARK Museum for Friday, May 31st. I will be sending home permission slips tomorrow. Please sign and return all sections, and have your child return their slip by this Friday if possible, or no later than next Friday the 17th. Thank you! Here are important dates and reminders for the remainder of our week:

Math: Lines, Rays and Angles
