Welcome to 4th Grade!


Please check this page weekly for updates on homework and other information about what is happening in our class.  Refer to the www.rak12.org calendar for general information about school-wide events.

Important Dates

  • 6/11 EOY Picnic Lunch at Reservoir Park (Parents are welcome to join us!)
  • 6/14 T3 Award Ceremony and Light Blue Shirt Ceremony/ Last Student Day (see Galileo Webpage for details)

It is our tradition that at the end the year we introduce the up-coming "5th Grade Blue Shirts."  This is a short ceremony that will take place immediately following the 3rd-Trimester Galileo Awards presentations.  
Each current 4th-grade student will need to bring in a light blue shirt by Monday, June 11th.  The shirt does not need to be Renaissance Academy shirt.  It should have the student name taped inside or written on the tag.
As a reminder, this will take place on Thursday, June 14th from 10:30-12:00 in the Upper School Gym.  If you plan to attend please use the sign-up link that has been sent out in previous EOY e-mails.
