Last Few Weeks of School!!

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is Screen-Shot-2022-05-06-at-8.08.57-PM.png

We are starting the RISE test THIS week! We spent the week reviewing and doing our end-of-year diagnostics. They are so ready! I’m so proud of the growth they have shown this year!! If you want to help your child do well next week, it is very important and impactful for them to come to school with good rest as well as full bellies with a healthy breakfast. Remember, Quest Academy has breakfast, so come to school before 8:15 to receive breakfast. Our testing time will start shortly after school starts in the morning, so please be ON TIME as well. Additionally, we want to help ease any testing jitters and increase excitement as much as we can.

Utah History Program

utah

We are having a Utah Program at Quest (Q1) Academy. All of the 4th-grade students will be singing different Utah songs for you. Best dress (what you would wear to a wedding or church) or school uniform, please. Along with singing, 8 students from our room will have speaking parts. They have already accepted and have been practicing their parts. These parts need to be memorized. If your child does not have a speaking part, they are still a vital part of our program and their attendance is crucial to the success of our program.

We are excited to entertain you all! Invite everyone you know to come-no limit! All of the 4th-grade kids have created something to show you about our beautiful state. They will be displayed afterward in our class. 

BFG PROJECTS

The BFG is a Big Friendly Giant that wants to live among the “human beans.” Our task is to create a practical item that the BFG could use in our world. However, our regular size item will not be big enough.

BFG Project Requirements:

The item your child chooses to make for the BFG must be 4 times the size of a regular “human bean” item. Examples might include a toothbrush, books, car keys, socks, candy bar, etc. (We will go over the math needed to figure out how to enlarge an everyday item.)

The item must be practical. We need to be able to carry the item to and from school easily 😉

Have fun with this project as it is something for them to enjoy using their imagination and creativity for the hard work they have put in all year! Thank you for all you do and your continued support this year!

Adult chaperones: $8 *if chosen as a class chaperone.

FIELD DAY FUN: $2 *While you are paying these fees, please pay the field day donation too. 

I will be lottery-choosing 6 chaperones for the Field Trip. Please indicate on the Google form if interested.

We will be using the Frontrunner. Students will need to be dropped off and picked up at the Roy station by their guardians. There will NOT be transportation from Quest to or from the train station.

DROP OFF: Students should plan to arrive at the station no later than 8:00 AM.  THE TRAIN will pull out at 8:15am  THERE WILL NOT BE A TEACHER AT THE STATION BEFORE 7:45am TO TEND ANY CHILD.

PICK-UP: We will arrive back at the Roy station at 2:45 PM. STUDENTS MUST BE PICKED UP BETWEEN 2:45-3:00 pm. 

Please indicate on the Google form if your student will be needing a school lunch or home lunch. If you didn’t order a sack lunch from the school, send your child with a lunch that day that doesn’t need to be refrigerated. They will carry their own lunches. If they did order school lunch, it would be given to them that morning. 

Send your child with a small jacket, bags/backpack to carry their lunches, and a water bottle. No electronic devices (games/phones) are allowed on the field trip. They may bring something small to play with on the Frontrunner. For example, a deck of cards, a small pack of crayons/notebook, or a figurine/fidget toy. Nothing that will bounce away from them or cause a mess. No gum. Apply sunscreen beforehand and send some if your child may need more. We will be eating lunch outside.

Email your child’s teacher if you have any questions.

Thanks,

Fourth Grade Teachers
