HALLOWEEN & FALL PARTY:
At Chelsea School, we want to keep Halloween a safe and happy celebration. Here are a few guidelines for celebrating Halloween at Chelsea . . .
• Students are not to wear their costumes to Chelsea. They will have an opportunity to change into their costumes.
• Do not bring to school paraphernalia associated with the costume.
• We want to see student’s faces at all times. Do not wear masks or face paint to school or on the bus.
• Items that simulate weapons will not allowed at school or on the bus.
• Costumes that are violent in nature or inappropriate for the school setting will not be allowed at Chelsea.
• Any inappropriate paraphernalia will be sent to the office.
Thank you for helping us keep Halloween safe at Chelsea.

Ad-ELA: Our first unit in ELA will be centered around stories of "new beginnings" and "perspectives". We will be reading "The Orphan of Ellis Island" and "Esperanza Rising" as our advanced ELA text. In writing, we will begin to learn and write informational pieces while using perspective to shape what we write.

Math: In the third module, students use place value understanding and visual representations to solve multiplication and division problems with multi-digit numbers. As a key area of focus for Grade 4, this module moves slowly but comprehensively to develop students’ ability to reason about the methods and models chosen to solve problems with multi-digit factors and dividends. Parents looking for homework help: I recommend Duane Habecker's videos on YouTube. The module number and lesson number can be found on the daily assignments for the week. Parents can see how it is being modeled in class to help their child at home.
