Dear Parents,

This term we have been working on biographies in our Reading Block. As a culminating activity 4th graders will participate in a living Wax Museum. Next week, students should bring a biography (a book) of the famous person they plan to portray.  In the weeks to come we will begin to create our monologue for the wax museum.  The Fourth Grade Wax Museum will be held on Thursday, February 1st at 9AM.  All are invited to attend!

Please make certain that the child has their book by Wednesday January 17, 2018.
