Weekly News!

This week in room 15...

  • It was nice to have Open House last night.  I hope you are as proud as I am with all the progress your children have made.  It is fun to see all the writing and art work they have done this year and to reflect back on 3rd grade.  THANK YOU FOR ATTENDING!
  • Our Moraga History books got finished up this week with an about the author page and top ten list.  I hope you learned a lot about our town from your child.
  • We continue to observe our snails this week.  We have had to clean their habitats and have observed them crawling about.  We began making little books with snail facts during class today.
  • Students met with research clubs during Reader's Workshop and worked on making word banks for important words about their subject matter, learning how to think and talk about their topic and researched another sub topic this week.  We learned how important it is to put our learning in our own words.
  • In Math we continue to study fractions.  We also did the Performance Task part of the state math test.
  • Students worked on planning their Cinderella adaptation.  One thing we learned was to tell or act out our story before writing.  We blocked out the events in our story into 6 parts.
  • Life Skill Focus:  Sense of Humor: to laugh and have fun without hurting others. Thanks Isaac for demonstrating this life skill!








Volunteer Sign Ups

Our school and classroom wouldn't be the same without the help of parents like you.  There will be opportunities to help out throughout the year.  


  • Thank You for ALL YOUR HELP this year! Field Trips and Parties were a success due to parent support!


Volunteers are required to fill out paperwork, take a quiz, and bring a copy of your driver's license to the office or district office.  Click here to access the requirements.  Many people are already "cleared" with the district.  Please contact the office or myself if you are unsure of your status.  Driver form is located in my "locker".  Please fill this out if you can be a driver.


Thank you for all the support you provide in and out of the classroom.
