We have had some great dress up days recently. Martic students dressed as teachers, and teachers dressed as students. It was like a Flip Flop Day! Also, on February 22nd we participated in Career Day. All of the students did a great job dressing as a career they respect or aspire to have.
We are looking for a few parent chaperons for our field trip to the State Capitol Building on Thursday, March 14th. If you are interested please let me know. The school must have all of your updated clearances. I will start reaching out to interested parents on Friday. (Email or Dojo are the easiest ways to get in contact)
If you have any additional questions about the field trip, please feel free to contact me.
Due to the snow days Ms. Almoney has rescheduled lessons. Here is a link to the lessons and rehearsals website: https://blogs.pennmanor.net/jalmoney/2019/02/12/lessons-and-rehearsals-after-3-snow-days/#
Thanks for all the wonderful treats and goodies donated to 4T!
There is no test this Friday, 2/15, due to school cancellations earlier this week. Instead, the test will be moved to 2/22/19.
Our 4th Grade Martic Math Bowl team is ready for the competition! They have worked very hard and we all wish them good luck today!!
In our after school STEM Club, students have been working to construct water filters. Their objective is to build the least expensive (from commonly available parts) water filter, that cleans the water the best, and the quickest.
Students purchase materials and evaluate their possible scores, given how much money they spent, using a cost analysis rubric. Next, they test their materials to see what works best and redesign their filters if needed.
The water is judged on color, clarity, smell, and particles.
Students have done an amazing job designing, creating, and testing their filters!
