Welcome Back to School
You Little Monster!

I can’t believe how fast the summer has gone and that it’s already time for school! I hope you've had a wonderful summer relaxing, playing, and making lots of memories. We are going to have a terrific 4th grade year!
Below are some items I would like you to bring on the first day of school. Please don’t bring other items because our desks don’t allow for much room.

1.    A 1 inch binder.  (No larger please)
2.    Dividers for binder, 5.  Please help your child get them labeled on both sides as Science, Utah Studies, Book Reports, Writing, and Misc.
3.    1 spiral bound notebook for math
4. 1 spiral bound notebook for science
5.    2 red pens, for correcting
6.    Small container for pencils and pens
7.    Pencils, send more throughout the year
8.    Box of tissues/Clorox Wipes for the class

North Park’s “Back to School Night” is Tuesday, Aug. 23, at 6:00 pm, starting in the gym. Please plan to attend. There is a lot of important information discussed at this time. If there are concerns or questions you have for me before this meeting, you are welcome to call me at school 752-5121 or e-mail me at holly.stuart@ccsdut.org. It is such a busy night, and I just don’t have time to individually talk to a lot of parents.
I am asking for a \$5 donation to go towards our classroom magazine, "Storyworks". It is based on the Utah Core Curriculum and is a wonderful addition to our language arts program. If you are willing to donate, just bring it to back to school night, or send it with your child to school.
Please e-mail me at the address above so I know you were able to access my blog. You will be using it a lot! Also, if plans have changed and you are not planning on attending North Park this year, please let me know asap. Enjoy the rest of your summer!
