Dear 4th Grade Families,

We are committed to continuing to provide your student with a rigorous education during this uncertain time.  Starting on Monday, March 23, we will be posting all assignments on Google Classroom (please see below on how to access this resource).  Before accessing assignments devices will need to have Google Chrome downloaded. In the meantime, there are some paper tasks in this packet that were created by the district staff.  Your child can bring the packet back to school when we return.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to us through Talking Points or email: Math questions: Cindy Blackie: blackc@portlandschools.org Reading  / science questions: Nicole Casasa-Blouin: blouik@portlandschools.org or Cindy Soule: soulec@portlandschools.org Writing questions: Susan Powers: powers@portlandschools.org

Please contact your child’s homeroom teacher for questions not related to a particular subject area!

Read Across America Day!
Today is a day to celebrate one's love of reading!  Reading Blocks 1 & 2 got a chance to meet Maine Mariner's hockey coach Riley Armstrong and his wife, Amber, who is a former Air Force mechanic.  Students got a chance to learn about their jobs and listen to Zackery's Ball and Clink  read aloud.




Reading Blocks 3 & 4 got to meet 2019 Miss Maine Carolyn Brady!  She read aloud What Can a Citizen Do? and students discussed the importance of citizenship.  Click here to read more about this impressive Bowdoin graduate.
