Open House

4th Grade 2011-2012

volunteering in the classroom
Volunteering in the Classroom
  • All LCS applications through this past Friday. I have also sent emails to everyone who has been cleared through LCS and PTO Manager letting them know that they are READY to volunteer. I have a LOT of LCS forms that don't have a PTO Manager account. Please remind your parents that they MUST have both in order to be cleared to volunteer. I will be at school this week helping volunteers with the sign in process and anyone who needs help with PTO Manager. I have had several emails from parents saying that they have taken things home and want to know how they can get credit for those hours. These hours can be counted in "off-site" hours. If you have parents that have been doing work at home, PLEASE encourage them to log on to PTO Manager and log them as "off-site" hours, so BLE can get credit for those hours.
  • If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
blue ferpa forms
Blue FERPA Forms
  • These forms state that you do not wish your child to be photographed for any reason.
  • This means that their picture will not be in the yearbook or in any class pictures.
  • I will give these blue forms back to you and if you wish for your child not to be photographed, I will keep a copy on file and send one to the office.
  • New form on the table.

ar reader
AR Reader
  • • Each month, students must read a minimum of 2 AR books. These books must be on either third, fourth or fifth grade level. (3.0-5.9) • I encourage the lower level books for the beginning of the year, and then after Christmas students can move onto a higher level. • This is a portion of the students reading grade and is required. • Each month, we will focus on fiction OR non-fiction books.
  • Consequences

 If the minimum goal is not met, students lose developmental play time until that goal is met.  o For example, if a student has not taken an AR test in the last two weeks, starting the following Monday they should come in ready to take a test or they read during developmental play time until they are ready to take and pass a test.


We will create monthly rewards for completing the assignment and exceding expectations.

How does my child get an AR book?  Simple!  Fourth graders are allowed to check out four media center books.  I highly recommend that they check out TWO AR books at all times.  They can also check out AR books from our classroom library. Of course, the public library is also a great resource for additional books. 

  • When/where do students have the opportunity to take tests?  Students may take tests in our classrooms in the afternoons from 2:30 to 2:45, during their media time, and if time allows, during reading workshop.
  • Where can I find a list of AR books?  You can find a link at Buck Lake’s website for all of the books currently available.  There is also a hard copy located in our Media Center.
monthly projects
Monthly Projects
  • Each month the students will do a reading project. The one for this month is a book report and they will need to take a piece of poster board, cut out a circle for their face, and draw the details from the book as a background.

  • SuccessMaker Reading reinforces concepts and skills to address a variety of instructional needs within the five major components of reading for K-8 students. The mathematics course enables teachers to give one-to-one support to a wide spectrum of K-8 students who have difficulty with grade-level math concepts. Behind it all, the powerful Learning Management System provides on-demand reports for quickly assessing progress by classroom or student.
