It is a great week to be a fourth grader! Parents, it is a busy week at the Intermediate and we would love to have you join in the fun!

Monday night- School Board meeting

Tuesday 5:30-7:00 Leadership Night- Hosted by our students. We have been learning the 7 Habits from Steve Covey. This is a chance for your child to showcase what they have been learning… complete with food trucks in the parking lot!!

Friday- Hoops for Heart Day, Academy Awards, and BIG Parties! What a great day to celebrate academic victories, keeping our body healthy, and being great citizens! Fourth grade schedule will be altered on this day.

Thursday we will have our regular schedule and our Spelling, Vocabulary, and Grammar tests. This week, you can help your student out by reviewing articles with them (these are the words a, and, the) and you can review subject pronouns with them (words such as: they, them, we, he, she, it, you).

Thank you so much for sharing your child with us. We look forward to teaching him/ her and seeing you this week!
