Thank you for joining our community.  We are excited about the opportunity to get to know you and your child, and we are looking forward to a happy and productive school year.

We love helping our students be the best they can be.  We will do our best this year to ensure that all our students have a successful learning experience, but it is important that we are partners in the learning process.  By asking your child about something learned during the school day you can help foster learning and self esteem.

Fourth grade is an exciting time for children as they move from learning to read to reading to learn. This important transition year is one in which the acquisition of new skills is accelerated.  While the focus in fourth grade will continue to be the strengthening of reading and math skills, students will also practice writing skills every day as well as learn new concepts in science and global studies.

You can also support your child’s learning by ensuring that all homework assignments have been completed. Try to establish a designated time and place for your child to complete homework.  Please let us know if your child is having difficulty completing assignments independently. Homework assignments are always posted in the classroom, and students are required to write them in their assignment books.  

Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns.  Email is the best way to reach us. We check our email every day and will reply within 48 hours.
