Science Test 
To assist in studying for the science test, go to the links tab of this website and click on 
Science Textbook online.  There are videos, games, and puzzles for students to interact with 
that will make studying a little more fun.  Page 2 of the study guide is posted on the Study 
Guides tab of this website.  Page 1 is definitions that your child can look up in the science 
book glossary, so I did not post that page.  

Social Studies Quiz/Math Retake
The quiz has been graded and will be in this weeks Friday Folder.  The students did a great 
job on this first test.  If your child took the math retake test, that is also in the Friday Folders.  
All students that took the retake improved their scores!

Recorder Order Forms
It's that time again... 4th graders have the opportunity to order a recorder.  The order forms 
will come home on Wednesday. Please return the order form by Friday, October 10th.

Author Visit
Penny Warner, a local author, that created the series Code Busters will be visiting our class on 
Monday, October 6th.  Inside last weeks Friday Folder was information about the author and 
an opportunity to order her books.  If you are interested in ordering a book for your child, 
please send in the order form with a check by Friday.  Ms. Warner will be signing books that 
are purchased.  

Walk Through California
Students received their expert word cards and glued them in the front of their homework 
planners.  Please help them to memorize their word definition and the answer to their trivia 
question and memorize that as well.  The in-house field trip will take place on October 9th. 
Thank you Ms. Miranda for offering to keep score on event day.   

I have signed up everyone for conferences.  Tab will be posted this week on website with your 
date and time. 

Have a FABULOUS week!
