Dear 4th graders and families,

It's hard to believe that the school year is winding down. We are wrapping up our last units of study in all subject areas. Exams are around the corner please see the schedule in the date section below. Students will work on study guides for each exam after the Ascension Thursday/Memorial Day weekend break.

Our class trip to "William Penn Day" at Pennsbury Manor on Thursday, June 1st is also quickly approaching. This trip is a rain or shine event so please be sure that students have the proper attire in the event of rain. Students should back a "brown bag" lunch that doesn't not need to be refrigerated. They may bring money to purchase items at the gift shop. Students may wear their GYM uniforms.

The 4th grade will be treated to a pizza lunch on Wed. June 14th in recognition of of our participation in the Keystone Quiz. Drinks will be provided too.

Mr. Christopher Seifert is offering a leadership camp this summer.... check it out
