Fractions

Here we are in class using the fraction pieces to find equivalent fractions.

Don't lose the paper set that you have at home!  They are super helpful not only in for homework in this chapter but also future chapters!



Christmas Cards

We made Christmas get well cards  for wounded veterans in local Vet hospitals. It's a project from 106.5 Spencer's Neighborhood.  They have a goal of getting 2000 cards.

Tree of Lights

Tree of Lights
We will be collecting money for the Waterloo Rotary Tree of Lights again this year from December 5th to December 16th.  Our goal this year is to raise $1,000.00. With each donation of $0.50 or more, you will receive a candy cane. Money collected helps assist needy families in Monroe County throughout the year and especially during the holiday season.   We will be using the trees outside the office to track our progress. The first tree will be lit up when we have over $100 in donations. The next trees will be lit when we have reached the $300, $500, $750, and $1,000 milestones. Please help us light up our forest of trees.



Gift Exchange?
In 4th grade we ask that the $3.00 to $5.00 that would have been spent on a gift exchange be donated to the Tree of Lights campaign. The donations help others right here in Monroe County to have a nice Christmas. This goes along with December’s “Caring” character trait. Thank you for helping to teach our students to be caring!
