  • 1st Quarter - Things to Know:


    • WELCOME TO FOURTH GRADE!! With the launch of our 1st Quarter, comes a lot of exciting and new adventures to be had! This year we will leap into a world full of challenges and triumpths. I look forward to having this journey with you. As the great Albus Dumbledore once said "It is our CHOICES that show us what we TRULY are far more than our ABILITIES." While the road ahead will look challenging at times, I know with a little courage, a lot of hard work, and a sprinkle of hope...Together we will have the BEST YEAR YET!! 


    • Please Remember that attendance is important for every student, because every minute is a learning minute. Every Monday, a newsletter will come home in regards to what is happening in the classroom, in addition daily/weekly posts on ClassDojo


    • Throughout the year students are held to a higher standard on monitoring their own behaviors. Parents, you can always check and monitor your students behavior progress via ClassDojo. Students earn/lose points daily based on their personal behavioral choices. It is your child's job to go home and show you their daily dojo point log and A.R. reading log. 


    • Our school serves (free) breakfast in the classroom where all students are provided with the option to eat breakfast. At the beginning of each month I send home the breakfast menu so that parents can see what students are being provided with during the month. If your child lost the menu and you are curious, you can access it via the food services image. (plus more health conscious parents can make a more informed decision on breakfast in the mornings)




  • REMEMBER: I am very open to communication, as with communication I can ensure a wonderful year for your student. Feel free to contact me through ClassDojo, phone, or e-mail. 
    On this site I will do my best to keep it up to date with what we are doing in class. This will also be a place where you will be able to find homework and other helpful information throughout the school year. Here's to a wonderful year to come!!
