If we missed you today, no worries! Here’s a quick recap of what was discussed in the Google Meets today.
*Bring a mask and a water bottle on the first day of school.
*Please complete the Laptop Agreement form ASAP so your child can bring their laptop home. https://letort.pennmanor.net/wp-content/uploads/sites/9/2020/08/1-to1-Agreement.pdf
**Group B will have an early dismissal on Thursday, September 3rd at 1:30pm. *There is no school on Friday, September 4th and Monday, September 7th.
*Group A will come to school on Monday and Wednesday of next week. Group B will attend school on Tuesday and Thursday of next week. At home activities will be completed on the days students are home.
*AT HOME ACTIVITY #1: We are asking ALL students to bring in a photograph of who motivates them – their family, a pet, someone famous, a friend, etc. If you are unable to print the picture at home, feel free to email your child’s homeroom teacher and we will print it out at school. This picture could be someone they know, a pet, someone famous they aspire to be, etc. – it could even be a picture of a group of people. For example, I have a picture of my family up there. When I’m having a bad day, I just look up at the picture, smile, and remember to have a good day. This is just one way we try to encourage our students by reminding them of who they want to be. Thank you for your support with this!
AT HOME ACTIVITY for GROUP B ONLY: Students in GROUP B are being asked to write down 3 statements about themselves and bring them to school on Tuesday, their first day of school. Of these 3 statements, two should be truthful. For example, Mrs. Gwyn has been teaching 4th grade since 2008. One of the statements should be a fib. For example, Mrs. Gwyn has 3 brothers, two older and one younger. That is technically false because I only have one older brother! When we are in school, students are going to be able to guess which statement is the fib.
Will there be recess? Yes, we will be taking recesses throughout the day including a lunch recess. Equipment was graciously donated to each class by the PTO, which will be santized after each use. Thank you PTO!
What special will we have? Mrs. Gwyn’s class will have Art every day until October 2nd. Mrs. Binkley’s class will have Applied Engineering every day until October 2nd. For the full semester special schedule, see the SPECIALS tab on the blog.
Will we eat in the cafeteria? Yes, both 4th grade classes will be eating in the cafeteria from 12:15 – 12:35. They will then go out to recess from 12:35 – 12:55.
What supplies will be given? On the first day of school, we will provide students with folders, notebooks, a whiteboard, a clipboard, and a lanyard to hold their mask. We are asking that you provide the following supplies for your child: pencils, a pair of scissors, earbuds or headphones, Expo dry-erase markers with an eraser or sock, and a pencil box or pouch to hold these materials. In addition, we highly suggest sending along the following items with your 4th grader on the first day of school: glue sticks, colored pencils, and a small pencil sharpener.
If you have any further questions, feel free to email us prior to the start of the year. Mrs. Binkley – firstname.lastname@example.org Mrs. Gwyn email@example.com
