October 2nd, 2016
This week was really eventful! On Monday, when we went up to assembly, Nate's mom came to talk to us about the auction. We all thought it was funny when she came in riding a bull! Remember to sell your raffle tickets! This week we also finished reading Because of Winn-Dixie by Kate DiCamillo. On Friday, we had a Winn-Dixie party and watched the movie.

This was another packed week in Fourth Grade! We continued our study of the Birth of Rocks in Science this week . In Social Studies, we have begun to look at the 9 federally recognized tribes of Oregon. This week the Fourth Graders will be researching and writing about a tribe in Google Classroom. The students watched Caine's Arcade this week and the class will be participating in the Cardboard Challenge. I hope you saw the sheet in Friday Folder explaining more about the process. All building will be done in school with the products being presented to the students at recess on Friday!
This Thursday, October 6th The Madeleine School will be celebrating St. Francis of Assisi with our annual Blessing of the Animals at 3:00.

Tomorrow is our Friendship Family picnic, rain or shine! Please pack a sandwich plus 6 servings of cookies/chips to share. Thanks!
Heads up~ The Fourth Graders will be reading a Mystery Book for their October book report. The books need to be shown to me by next Monday, October 10th.

The report will be due on Wednesday, November 2nd. We will go over the guideline in class this week and they will go home soon.
