                                Mr. Wallace’s Monthly Herald: March
 

Dear Parents,  

 

      It’s that time again!  3rd quarter report cards will be sent home on Friday, March 27th.  I am excited about the progress being made, however, there is a tendency at this point in the school year for students to begin exhibiting early signs of ”spring fever.”  The good news is that it’s not too late for students to begin making positive academic and social decisions.  I continue to emphasize to students the importance of choice and attitude upon their commitment to academic excellence as we set and review goals for 4th quarter!  We are privileged to also have Mr. C conference with our 4th graders about good character and goal setting!

Important Dates:

  • ThinkCentral Parent Night: Thurs., 3/12

  • Biography Projects Due Friday, 3/13

  • Spring break: March 30th-April 10th

  • State testing: weeks of April 20th & 27th

  • Mission San Luis Rey field trip: May 19th (More info will be sent home in May)


As we journey through our language arts theme “Heroes,” we are now focusing on the review and practice of parts of speech, Latin word roots and figurative language such as idioms, similes and metaphors. Additional attention is being paid to reading comprehension and writing skills.  


Math students continue to explore fraction concepts and will soon be investigating decimals and polygons.  We are wrapping up the study of electricity in science, while in social studies, we’ll begin examining the causes for the Mexican War for independence from Spain, and how that brought about the eventual statehood of CA.


  Feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have at (951) 696-1402 ext. 2133 or bwallace@murrieta.k12.ca.us


Thanks for visiting!


Mr. Wallace
