    Dear Parents and Guardians,

    Although the calendar says it's fall, it certainly hasn't been feeling like it these days! However, the students and staff are getting into the fall feel with different actvities and events occurring during the month of October. 

    We are doing the Halloween Parade again this year. The parade will begin at 1:00 and the students and staff will parade around the upper parking lot in the front of the school. Please try to carpool if at all possible, since there will be minimal parking available on school grounds. 

    This month we are beginning our White Rock CARES program. A student of the month will be selected from each class who best exhibited the characteristics of courtesty, achievement, responsibility, effort and support over the course of the month. Student winners will be treated to lunch with the principal!

    Here are a few of the highlights of some activities over the past month:

    • Third Grade is getting settled into a routine with Readers' and Writers' Workshop

     

    • Third grade students are learning about weather, reading weather maps and making weather predictions in science

     

    • 5th grade Music classes are completing a unit on Francis Scott Key and the Star Spangled Banner.  Many important discussions have arisen from the recent events in the news. 

     

    • TREPS will be starting this month with 75 fifth graders participating!

     

    • 5th grade students are learning about the  structure and properties of matter in Science

     

    • The fourth grade is beginning their Haunted House writing and project.

     

    • 90 4th Grade Band students played their instruments for the first time in September and continue to learn how to play and make music

     

    • 66 5th Grade Band students are continuing or are learning a new instrument this year

     

    Have a wonderful month!

    Mrs. De Brito

    4th Grade Classes competed for the Battle of the Books title in February. All students participated by reading up to 10 novels and competing at the class level to determine the team that would represent them against their grade level. Classroom teams competed with Mrs. Grisi's class wining the competition overall. It was a close battle which came down to a tie breaker question! Congratuations to all our participating teams!

    Some of our White Rock students had their stories selected and performed by The Story Pirates at a recent assembly. These students are invited to visit the Story Pirates Theater in New York City and have their plays performed live on their stage. Congratulations to the students shown below!
