games your kids should or should not be playing. There are so many games
out there it can be difficult to keep track of which games are
appropriate. This site explains game ratings and identifies tools that
will help you learn about the games your kids want to play. There are
tools that can help you to make sure your kids can’t access online
features if you don’t want them to.
only are there tools to help you monitor gaming activities, but there
are tools that will help you monitor other online activities to help
protect your kids from cyberbullying. Check out this blog to learn more.
Only one month left before school starts! Remodeling at the buildings is going well and some of the things from Lohrville have been moved to the new buildings. Last chance to catch up on that summer reading or go on that vacation!
In celebration of Earth Day, the fourth grade will be going to University 40 this Friday. Remember to wear comfy clothes to plant in. Cold lunches will also be needed. We will be at the 40 from 10:00-2:00.
Just a reminder we have MAPS testing this week. Our class has two tests on Tuesday, and one each on Wednesday and Thursday. Try to get lots of sleep and eat a good breakfast. Try your best! Our goal is to have everyone improve on each test! Good luck!
I hope everyone had a fun weekend! Remember conferences are on Tuesday and Thursday of this week. The book fair is also set up. There will be a one hour early out on Tuesday and Thursday and no school Friday. Happy spring!
A few short days to celebrate, and we will be into March! This Friday is Jump Rope for Heart. In the morning, the students will be jumping by themselves, using the long ropes, and trying their hand at double dutch. I will try to take pictures to add to the blog next weekend. Mr. Hanson would like the fundraiser envelopes back by Wednesday. One last push to collect for the American Heart Association.
The committee met and decided to have the party Wednesday afternoon since there is no school on Thursday and Friday. Students may bring class valentines anytime this week but they will not be distributed until Wednesday. If bringing valentines, please make sure there is one for everyone.
Great Job to all the fourth grades for trying their best on the Iowa Assessments last week. All of my students worked really hard; I'm proud of you! Hopefully the scores will be in by conferences. The students also took the Dibbels reading accuracy test recently. Everyone improved from their fall scores! Fantastic!
Winter has appeared, and we start the week with a late start. This week is also when the fourth grade will take the Iowa Assessments (formerly the Iowa Tests of Basic Skills.) Make sure to get plenty of sleep and to have a good breakfast so you minds are ready to try their best on the tests!
Wow! Can you believe it? We are officially halfway through the school year. Look for report cards this Friday; I will also be sending the detailed explanations for grades.

Here's to a successful last half of the year!
