First Day

Hello Parents,

 I just wanted to let you know that we had a great first day here at school! There was lots of
  •  laughter
  • sharing about the summer
  • learning routines for... walking in the hall, recess, bathroom, work-time, whole group meetings etc.
  • We worked on a "Top 10 Things to Know About Me" activity  (ask your child what he or she chose to put on their list)
  • We met classmates with a "Toilet paper square" activity
  • We shared the book First Day Jitters
  • The children had guidance for special
  • We wrote and solved math equations on a "Figure Me out" activity
  • we did some ice breakers including one called, "4 square questions"
Thank you so much for sending in so many school supplies! The students will LOVE using them this year.

Tonight you will find a RED FOLDER in your child's back pack. This is their homework/notices folder. This folder should come to school with your child each day and come home with your child each night.  Tonight you will find a brown bag in your child's folder. For homework,  the students were asked to put an object in their brown bag that tells the class something about them (for example: picture, sports trophy, etc). It can be any object that fits in the bag. They will be sharing their objects with the class tomorrow. Keep an eye out for some important back to school forms in their red folder.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.

Thank you!

Dear Families,

The end is so close and I think we are all smiles about that! It was a challenging 4th grade year on all levels, and your young scholars have learned an incredible amount. It has been a very rewarding experience for me to be able to have all your children in my classroom.  They have each taught me a little something and have made teaching a much richer experience. I will never forget our crazy year together! I hope that you are pleased with all that they have learned. I know all the hard work and skills they developed will make next year run a little smoother.

I am very proud of how they persevered and stepped up to each challenge to reach their goals, individually and collectively! Thank you again for all your support and guidance.

I greatly appreciate how understanding and kind you all were. It was a pleasure meeting all of you. I enjoyed having the opportunity to work with you all, to create a caring and supportive team which helped each of your young scholars succeed to the best of their ability.

I wish you well in the years to come, and I hope that you and your family have a relaxing and calm summer! I will miss you all!

All the best,

Laura Frost

Maine Maritime Museum


Hello Families,
I hope you all enjoyed your weekend.  We had such a fantastic field trip last week! I will be posting pictures on our class blog. Make sure to check them out!

MAP testing
4th grade will be taking spring MAP assessments ton Monday and Wednesday this week. The tests will be in the morning from 9:00 a.m.- 9:50 a.m. Students will have a break for snack, special and recess, then they will continue from 11:20-12:20.  Monday is the Reading test and Wednesday is the math test.  Please remind your child to get a good night's rest and eat a healthy breakfast.  

Salmon Release
As part of our scientific study of Atlantic Salmon, 4th grade classes will be visiting a tributary of the Royal River on Friday, May 11th.  Our goal is to release our salmon fry into the wild. We will not need chaperones for the this trip. The field trip will be 8:55-10:30 a.m. We will miss our ordinary P.E. time in the morning, but we will have P.E. in the afternoon at 1:30. Please have your child dress appropriately for the weather, and conditions as our activity will take place mostly outside. If you could have your child wear boots that would be great as the conditions may be muddy. Permission slips will come home tomorrow. Please sign and return it by Wednesday.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.
