Week of May 11th-15th

Hi 4th Grade Students and Families,

Happy Mother’s Day on Sunday! I hope that you are able to enjoy your day!   Thank you so much for all that you are doing.         

Important REMINDER Regarding Textbooks/Laptops- Please HOLD ON to the Storytown Anthology, and orange Grammar textbook that are probably in your child’s backpack.  These classroom textbooks WILL NEED TO BE RETURNED to me at some point.  (I do not know when that will be- perhaps simply when we return to our building when school is back in session at Hambright.)  I THANK YOU VERY MUCH for helping me out with this, as I will need them in the future with my future students.  At this time, all student laptops, chargers, and bags are to remain in the hands of students.  The district may eventually give out details as to how they are going to handle the technology in the future.  Your child MAY KEEP the math workbooks.

NEW learning assignments for the Week of May 11th-15th

Reminder, there are 2 ways you can access the NEW learning assignments for May 11-15.  

#1: Penn Manor’s Remote Learning site


PLEASE NOTE:  Please be sure to SHARE it with me. (kelley.groff@pennmanor.net)

 #2:  Google Classroom

Students can also access the activities on Mrs. Groff’s Google Classroom page (I prefer this one!), or our 4th Grade Hambright Shared Learning Google Classroom page.  Once there, click on CLASSWORK at the top, and find the activities for the week.  Click on the activity and the document that you can write on will come up.  When you are finished, SHARE with me. (kelley.groff@pennmanor.net)

Optional Schedule:  I have attached an optional schedule for you (see at bottom of email) for next week’s learning activities.  You may choose to use it, or not.  I just want to share it in case any fourth graders and families could benefit from it.  If it’s not needed, simply ignore.  Continue to work through the activities at a pace that works best for you and your family.
