Hello, 4th Graders and Parents!
I hope you’re having a great summer! 🙂 Believe it or not, “Back to School” sales fliers will be out soon! As you are out and about, you may want to start watching for deals on the following school supplies:
Items that are required:
*A pair of gym shoes – they do not need to be new, just clean. These should be kept in your locker at school.
*A backpack or tote to carry your belongings
*A pencil box
Items that are highly recommended:
*5 folders with pockets – a different color for each subject will be helpful.
*3 or 4 wide ruled composition books
*Pencils, pens, and highlighters

*Fine tip dry erase markers
Items that are optional:
I’m looking forward to meeting you at the Georgetown Open House in August!
COLLECT BOX TOPS
Did you know that every BOXTOP and every COKE CAP collected earns money for our school? This summer we would like you to work hard to collect both. The money we earn will go toward a basketball hoop on our K/1 playground!
BOXTOPS: Every completed BOXTOP sheet is worth $5.00. If every child from Georgetown (approx 570) fills one sheet this summer, our school will earn $2,750. Many thanks to Lori Simpson and all of you who are on her team of BOX TOP counters, trimmers and packers. This is a great program that pays off because of all of YOU!

Keep On Learning With Reading & Mobymax
Studies have shown that students can lose up to 50% of learning during the summer vacation. Georgetown is challenging you and your child to “KEEP ON LEARNING” this summer to prevent summer slide. There are two ways to record your learning time:
Our goals for students over the summer are below. Students who reach or exceed goals will be entered in a drawing for an Amazon Gift Card (1 per grade). This is for their grade next year.
- First Grade: 100 minutes
- Second Grade: 200 minutes
- Third Grade: 300 minutes
- Fourth Grade: 400 minutes
- Fifth Grade: 400 minutes
- First Grade: 100 pts
- Second Grade: 200 pts
- Third Grade: 300 pts
- Fourth Grade: 400 pts
- Fifth Grade: 500 pts
- Reading: Log into this form to record the number of minutes you read. You can record each day or enter the total for each week.
If your child is new to the school and you would like login information, email Mrs. Reagan. firstname.lastname@example.org
Have a great summer…and keep on learning with READING and MOBYMAX!

In Reading, we’ve been analyzing Informational Books as mentor texts to help us write our own Informational Book topic of our choice.
Fractions are what we’ve been tackling in Math, with Decimals coming soon! A test on Unit 7 will be happening either at the end of this week, or early next.
We are wrapping up Social Studies by Taking a Stand on a pubic issue using the Core Democratic Values of the United States.
In Science, YES! Science! We will be practicing the Scientific Method…
- Purpose- What do you want to know?
- Research- What can you find out?
- Hypothesis- What do you predict?
- Experiment- How are you going to test it?
- Analysis- What happened during your experiment?
- Conclusion- What did you find out?
by dissecting OWL PELLETS! It will be a ton of fun!!
Tchaikovsky Homework from Mrs. Bretz 🙂
Due on April 12.
We are SO CLOSE to meeting our needed sign up to get $500 worth of PE EQUIPMENT!
We just need 26 more kids…that is one student per class.
This does not involve money — it simply involves registering and committing to taking care of your heart through exercise and diet.
WE CAN DO IT! Just 26 more kids and we have $500 worth of new PE equipment for everyone to use!
We need to get every one in our class to sign up for the We are kicking off our Kids Heart Challenge
If everyone in our class signs up, we will get $500 worth of new equipment for PE!
Here’s what we’ve been up to!
Math- we are digging into Unit 4 tackling story problems with all four operations, finding factor pairs and generating/analyzing number patterns.
Reading- Nonfiction Book reading skills. Reading, responding to text and sharing topics that we are learning with others.
Writing-Literary Essay. Using a BIG Idea, we will prove our point by using evidence from lessons that authors teach us within the books we read in class.
Social Studies- We are wrapping up our last lessons on the Federal Government and will be taking a test soon. Study materials will be coming home.
Science is on the way!!
