November & December News

We had a surprise visit from Mr. Carson Kauffman. Mr. Kauffman is a veteran and member of the Millersville VFW. He wanted to personally thank the class for their kind Veterans Day poems. He shared that the members were really touched by them, and that they have them hanging up! He asked if we were able to make some holiday cards for veterans as well. Of course we said YES…so we will gladly be making some holiday cards to share with the veterans residing at Country Meadows. Great job, 4th graders!

November Information & Dates

4th Grade is collecting CANNED SWEET POTATOES for Penn Manor families- if you are able to donate, please send in your donations by November 15th.  THANK YOU!

Classroom donations needed: boxes of tissues, hand sanitizer, and wipes (so that we can wipe down and clean our desks frequently as we enter into flu season!)

Math– Our Chapter 5 TEST on 2-digit multiplication will be on Tuesday.  Students are working hard to learn, learn, learn this difficult math.  The Test REVIEW will come home on Monday. Please look through the review with your child to help them for the test on Tuesday. Go Math Leaders!  Thanks for your support at home!!

Reading– We are continuing with our main idea unit in reading. Students are learning how to identify the main idea of a text/paragraph, both when stated directly and implied. We are learning to use key details to help us identify the main idea, if there are no headings in the text, and if the main idea is implied and not stated. We are also learning how to use our main ideas in a text to write a summary.
Thanks for the continued support with reading at home each evening!

Spelling– No Spelling this week!

Writing– Coming up…Interviews…conducted by our very own reporters!
We will also be working on Veterans Poems to send to a local VFW, in honor of Veterans Day.  We will be thanking them for their service and writing special messages to them.

Science/Social Studies- Our current unit in content is Chemistry with Mr. Showalter.

Conference Slip Reminder & PTO News

Please return your conference slip- thank you!

*****News from our Hambright PTO:
Hambright Family Fun Movie Night–DATE CHANGE
The Hambright Family Fun Movie Night is being moved to Friday, November 15th due to a conflict with homecoming for the original date. Hambright students and their immediate family members (i.e. parents and siblings only) are welcome.
Again, the movie night will now be held on November 15th. Doors will open at 6:30. The movie will begin at 7:00 pm. Entrance is FREE!
There will be more details about the evening coming home in November.
Fyi…we will not be allowed to communicate over the blog, website, or Facebook which movie will be playing as the licensing company restricts public communication of the movie title and production company. HOWEVER, closer to the date we will send home a flyer with your child and communicate over announcements which movie will be playing.
