Welcome back grade four community!! We hope you had a restful and relaxing Morazánica week! It is time to go back on track full of energy. This is a full week and with a lot of fun activities planned for all our classes.
As every year in our school we celebrate ¨Book Character day¨, for this reason, we encourage our students to start planing the costume they will be using to represent the character from their favorite book they had read before or from any other new novel we are reading in fourth grade. It is extremely important to keep in mind that this is not a Halloween celebration, it is simply an activity in which students have the opportunity to represent their favorite character and show their reading and communication skills. We would also like to remind parents to please use your creativity and use as many things as you might have at home that you can handmade the costume. We will be posting in the following blog the exact day in which we will be holding this activity. A wax museum will be created by the students where they will have the chance to act like a talking statue and be able to talk about their character to the visitors we will have in class that period. Parents are welcome to come and visit our museum.
We are very happy to celebrate the birthday of
our lovely Luca during lunch time!! We wish you the best in this new year in your life!
