Mr. Wallace’s Monthly Herald:


Dear Parents,  

As our second quarter has now commenced, I am pleased by the continued progress that students are making. Parents, thank you for stopping by for conferences, and for your commitment to encouraging your child to give his or her best each day!

A big thank you to everyone who has returned the 4th grade fundraiser stuffed envelopes!  It’s not too late to help our students reach their field trip fundraising goal.  Be sure to join us for our upcoming Thanksgiving showcase and dessert night.

Important upcoming events:

  • Veteran’s Day Holiday, Tuesday 11/11

  • 4th Grade Thanksgiving Showcase/Dessert Night Thurs., 11/20 6pm

  • Thanksgiving Break, 11/24 – 11/28

In our study of language arts, we are wrapping up personal narrative writing prompts and students are now building on their understanding of parts of speech and honing their ability to evaluate and summarize information.  In math we are continuing to build math reasoning strategies within multi-step word problems, as well as explore division concepts.

In science, students are completing the study of fast and slow changes on Earth, while in social studies, we will be exploring the regional cultures of early Native Americans that first settled our state, followed by a look at world explorers.  

Technology Update: I’m continuing to utilize ClassDojo.com as a means of student behavoir accountability and parent communication. Please let me know if you have questions or need parent sign up information.


Finally, most students are doing well completing assignments, but study skills, organization, and neatness are still areas we are striving to improve.  Thank you for your diligence in checking student planners for daily homework assignments.  

Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have at (951) 696-1402 ext. 2133 or bwallace@murrieta.k12.ca.us

Enjoy your week!  

Mr. Wallace
