FLIP FLOP INTO FOURTH GRADE!

 

ALOHA and welcome to Rm. 21 where learning is FUN!!! I am so excited for this year!  In my class, students will learn the meaning of "ohana", which in Polynesian culture means family. It is my goal to ensure that each child feels like they play a valuable role in our classroom community in an environment where they will be supported in every way, by their teacher, and classmates in our new fourth grade family. I am looking forward to an incredible year together! Join us on a learning adventure and have fun exploring all that there is to know about our classroom on this site!

 

Mahalo!

Mrs. Montejano

 

    


 

Check out the Tiki TImes!

Each Monday, your child will receive our classroom newsletter, The Tiki Times. I also update this section of my web page with all the information on the Tiki Times so you can access it from your computer or phone. You will also receive an email with The Tiki Times attached so you are always in the know! 


 

The Tiki Times 11/5/18

* Our AR/AM goal period ended on November 11th. From today on, all work will automatically count towards Trimester 2 goals. I will be conferencing individually with students and will send home new goal sheets by next week. Congratulations to all the students who achieved their goals! I am proud of you for your determination and hard work! I will be rewarding these students this week!

* At conferences, I provided a writing sample of an essay your child wrote about  a person who had a positive impact on their life. Please return this to school so students can type it and upload it to See Saw in their digital portfolio. I will have students read and record their essays. I absolutely LOVED them! 

* If you did not get my email last week, I am happy to announce that I won a technology grant and have added 5 iPads to our classroom that we can use to support and enhance our learning!

* Our students will have Dash Bots robots in our room for the week. These are part of our Maker Space Lab at NCE!

* Please see my previous email sent on 11/9 about our upcoming field trip to The Environmental Nature Center this Friday! Most importantly, please be sure your child eats a BIG breakfast and has a substantial lunch packed. We will be eating lunch at 10:30 and will not have a snack or lunch break for the rest of the day. Please return the signed permission slip if you have not done so already. It is required for your child to attend!
