Fourth Grade News

Fourth Graders enjoyed a very busy week!  We began our week with our Community Meeting, where our mantra was "Always Stick Together". This mantra was very important as we continued to work together to create our Puff Mobiles. Our race will take place sometime in the next few weeks.

On Thursday we had the privilege of Skyping with author Amy Nielander, author of The Ladybug Race.  We learned so much about the process of writing a book and trying to get it published.  We loved hearing her message of kindness and sticking together!  We are thankful to the Kennedy PCC for funding this awesome event!  If your child would like to purchase a copy of The Ladybug Race, please send in your order form (which was sent home with your child). Books will be ordered and picked up at An Unlikely Story in Plainville and sent home with your child.

Our fourth graders also worked this week to help stop hunger.  This month, Midas participated in a program to "Drive Out Hunger".  For each "meal" drawn on a plate and tweeted, Midas will donate a meal to Feeding America.  Here are a few of our "meals".

If you would like to participate, view and share this video, and Midas will donate another meal!

As always, we wrapped up our week with Dance Party Friday.  This week's song:  Celebration by Kool and the Gang!  We certainly did celebrate!
