4th Grade Moving Up Letter

March 2017

To the Parents of 4th Grade Students:

 We can’t believe that our children have grown so quickly and are now past the midway point of 4th grade! We are planning some great activities for the end of their last year in elementary school. On June 9th they will be going on a field trip to the Miss Buffalo in the morning. You are welcome to come on the Miss Buffalo with your student. You just need to let the teacher know that you will be attending. When they get back to school they will be having a picnic lunch followed by some outdoor activities until 2:45. The lunch will be provided for the students thanks to the PTA. If you would like to follow the bus and join with the students back at school, you are most welcome. June will be here before you know it!

We are asking for a few important items from you as parents to help make the end of the year special.  First we ask that you send back the bottom portion of this form. It is for the t-shirt your child will be wearing the day of the field trip.

The second, is by helping us out with pictures of your child. During the last week of school, they will be viewing the DVD that will be a look back at your child’s years as an elementary student.

We are asking that you email a few photos of your child to help make the DVD.  We are looking for the following:

·         ONE photo of your child when they were a baby or toddler

·         ONE photo of your child with his/her family or activity or sports they have participated in

·         ONE current photo of your child

·         Any other group photos from previous years that you would like to share (This could be from any event of friends get together over the years.)

We will be compiling these photos, along with group photos that have been taken over the years, to make the DVD.  Each child will be given a copy of the DVD, compliments of the Thomas Edison PTA by the last day of school.   

********** Pictures are due by Wednesday, May 10, 2017 ******

We will need these photos sent to us by email only.  We are asking that you provide your child’s name in the subject line of the email, so that we can quickly identify your child and ensure everyone has an opportunity to be in the DVD.  Please email all pictures to me at If you are unable to email the pictures, you may provide photos in an envelope and the teacher will forward it to my school mailbox. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact Gennie Vitko at 876-4143.

Thank you for your help!
