A Typical Day in Fourth Grade at SM/MCA

Students start the day with morning announcements and prayer. Our mornings consist of language arts, math, writing, grammar, and reading. We have lunch and snack breaks and we always pray together before we eat. Each day we have one or two specials, which can be: Technology, music, spanish, art, gym, or library. Our afternoons consist of religion, science, and social studies. Students have the opportunity to enjoy recess together on our beautiful playground or on rainy days inside our gym. Students have many outdoor sports equipment to use inside and outside.
