We are having a Multicultural Fair for students to celebrate diversity on Thursday, June 21 after nutrition break. Your child has been researching a country of their choosing. They have found out various facts about the country like the type of music, the flag, the traditional clothing, climate, etc. Students will be working in class on a poster or tri-fold to display their information. All students will get an opportunity to see the work of their peers as well as showcase their work. Along with the information and display, we are asking students to bring in something to represent the culture of their researched country like food, clothing or an artifact. This should be something authentic, like finding a recipe and making it to bring in to share, instead of drawing a picture of a piece of clothing. If you have any questions, please email your child’s Humanities teacher.
Thank you for your support,
The Grade 4 Team
Students have been introduced to their Year End Assessment. This is a project that will take until the end of the year and is a culmination of their learning. All Grade 4 students will be creating a scrapbook called "The ABC's of Grade 4." Their job is to represent each letter of the alphabet with something they have learned this year in Grade 4 from each subject area. They will work on this project for two periods every day from now until June 26. On June 26th, they will share their project with their peers and present three letters to the class. Below is a link to the package students received as well as a calendar timeline indicating how much of the project should be completed each day as well as what we are looking for from their writing. Please contact your child's teacher if you have any questions or concerns.

We are lucky to have an artist in residence coming in to work with all of the Grade 4's! Thank you to Parent Council for funding this unique activity. Each Grade 4 will be making a pysanky egg to show cultural appreciation for an influential group of people that helped settle Alberta. People immigrated to Alberta from the Ukraine in waves due to the promise of acres of fertile farmland. One of their traditions is making pysanky eggs. Each grade 4 class will have a workshop to create their own egg based off the Ukrainian tradition. The dates for each class are listed below:
4B and 4D - Friday, May 5
4A and 4C - Friday, May 11
4E and 4F - Thursday, May 17
Students will be working with raw eggs and can wear gloves if they have an allergy. They should also wear a shirt that is okay if they happen to get dye on it. If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Moldovan - firstname.lastname@example.org
Grade 4 Drama Club begins next week with Mrs. Ross! Students will have their first meeting in the Foods Room from 3-4pm on Wednesday, May 2. Parents were contacted via email on Friday, April 20 and/or written note on Monday, April 23 if their child's name was successfully drawn for the club.
