Hello Everyone!
     I hope you and your child have started working on The Sons of The Utah Pioneers Ancestor Reports!  A fun thing to do as your child researches their ancestor, is to ask questions of their grandparents, or other relatives about their ancestors!  It's surprising, how fun this activity will be for you and your child!  They will learn things about their roots!  Stories that may have never been shared within your family, can now be told!  I'm excited for you and your child to be able to bond together, with your parents and grandparents!  Please follow the lavendar colored rubric, when putting together the Essay/Book Report!  It's not due until February 28, but please don't put it off!!

Reynolds' Raptor's News January 18, 2017

Good Morning Everyone!

     I hope you enjoyed the MLK three-day weekend!!  Our 4th grade classes did a marvelous job, presenting to our school, a program about Martin Luther King!  We had a flag raising ceremony, featuring our own Dax Merrium as the Color Guard Caller, and our own Color Guard, William Colin Taylor presenting The United States of America Flag! 
     We sang songs: "The National Anthem", "What About Martin?", "Brown Eyes Black Eyes", and "Let There Be Peace On Earth."  
     Each class presented their dream!  Our class' dream is:  That There Will Be No More Child Abuse, or Pornography!!  
     Each student created a Gingerbread Person, that was glued onto a large piece of Bulletin board paper, with the words: What's Your Dream painted on it, and is taped up in the foyer across the sand sculpture!  
     We watched a DVD about Martin Luther King!  I brought "Moon Pies" for the entire 4th grade students as a reward for doing such a great job!!

Hello Everyone!

I'm so proud of my class!!  Many scored 100% on the Math Chapter 6 Test!!  Yay!! Most all of the rest, only missed a couple of problems!!  If I can give you any advice on how to help your child with math, it would be this:  Please guide your child through each Math Homework page!  Looking over Math Homework scores, it seems that students are trying to do it all by themselves! The result is that they are practicing wrong!  Please help your child through each and every homework assignment.  You working one on one with your child, is sooooooooo beneficial!! Teach your child, the way you learned how to work the problems!  Your child needs to practice correctly!!  Perfect practice makes perfect!!  Thank you so much for your help with this!!  I really appreciate all that you do to help our children!!
