    Mrs. Lowry - August 2020
    Fourth Grade
                 
                 Welcome back to school.  I am very excited about the new school year.  I am happy to be starting another year in fourth grade.  However, I am disappointed that I am not able to see my whole class at one time because of Hybrid Learning.  I already know some of you and am anxious to get to know the rest of you.  This year I will be trying out a new app called Seesaw. It will make communication easier for you to get in touch with me and also for me to get in touch with you to let you know what is going on in the classroom.  I will let you know when you are able to sign up.  It is free.    
             
               Just a few things to know for the beginning of the school year.  It is very warm in the classroom. Please make sure your child dresses appropriately.  Also, they are allowed to bring a water bottle.  Please sign the planner each night so that I know that you are aware of what the assignments are.  Even when there is not any homework I would like you to sign just so you and your child get in the habit of getting it signed.
     
               This year we will also be using Google Classroom.  I know many of you are already familiar with this.  This is where the virtual assignments will be posted so it is necessary for all children to be logged in.  I am attaching a link to  for you to view if you are having trouble getting logged in.  Once you log in, go to the tab that says "Technology Tools", then pick the Google Classroom section.  It would be great if you could do this before the start of school.
                            
                
    Our Special Schedule is as follows:
                 Day 1 - Art
                 Day 2 - Library 
                 Day 3 - Computer
                 Day 4 - Gym
                 Day 5- Music
     
            We will be using the following website in class to improve our math fluency skills:  www.xtramath.com.  I will be sending home a paper with your child's log in information.  It would be great if they could do this at home. It is really important that each student learns their multiplication facts.
             
           Lastly, I would like to invite you to our "Back to School" night.  It is going to be on August 20, 2020.   It is going to be virtual.  Please view the attached slideshow prior to our Zoom Meeting.  You can get in touch with me at school by calling me at 657-3204 and my extension is 103. If you would like to reach me through e-mail, that address would be plowry@CDschools.org  I will try to get back to you as soon as possible.  Most of the time it will be at the end of the day. 
     
            
     
             Any concerns please contact me.  I know it is going to be a great year! 
                
                                                                                      Sincerely,
