• Good Afternoon,

    The Thanksgiving Friendship Luncheon will be held on Tuesday 11/26; it will be held during our normal lunch time at 11:40am.

    If your child will be absent Monday or Tuesday of next week, please let me know.

    On Monday, 12/2, we will be welcoming a new student into our classroom.  The students are excited to meet Tyler.  He is moving to CHE from another Blue Valley school.  Please help us welcome Tyler and his family into our classroom and school community.

    We will have our Math Topic 6 Test on Friday, December 6th.  Closer to the test date, your child will be bringing home the "Daily Common Core Practice" packet and the "Quick Check" packet to help prepare for the assessment. He/she may do any of the activities on the enVision website to help them study/practice as well.  There is a practice test in the text book that may be completed to practice, and this can be accessed through the enVision website as well. 

    Check the homework section below to see the next two week's homework.

    Our next classsroom newsletter will come out on December 6th.

    Have a wonderful weekend!

    Worth Repeating:

    The 4th grade curriculum plan is available each month on the CHE website under the "Monthly Curriculum Plans" tab.  

    Sumdog is back again this year! 
    Students will have the opportunity to play math games on this free website, as well as participate in BV District sponsored Sumdog contests throughout the year.  In the meantime, Sumdog is a great website your child can play at school and at home.  As your child answers math facts, it self-levels based on their accuracy and speed, so don't answer the problems for them.  A great feature is signing up as an adult to gain feedback on your child's weekly progress!  Bookmark Sumdog on your computers for your child:  


    Thank you for checking the Nut Safer List located on the CHE website under "Forms and Documents" for snacks in the classroom. We want our classroom to be a safe place for everyone!
