Exploring leaf structure

Fourth graders are exploring the structure of different leaves and how they support survival of plants in our environment. We classified and sorted them by palmate, pinnate shape; toothed, lobed and smooth edges; color, texture and size.  

Fourth Grade Fantasticos!

We enjoyed a wonderful trip to Children’s Island on Friday, September 7th.  Students participated in many activities such as Arts & Crafts, Strings, Kickball, Mystery Hunt, and the hugely popular game of Gaga!

Community Building

Students joined an activity with Mrs. Nuñez, Ms. Allura, Mrs. Crimmins,  and the Fourth Grade team to build a web of connection within our community.  We continue to get to know one another and our roles as one connected group and look forward to making Charter our home!

Welcome Fourth Graders!
