Dear Fourth Grade Families:
Greetings! I hope that you are all having a wonderful summer. I am looking forward to the 2019-2020 school year! I started teaching 22 years ago this fall and I cannot believe how time flies and how excited I become for the beginning of each new school year! I am excited to get to know you and your amazing kids. This year is going to be spectacular!
There are lots of things that you can do this summer to keep your child’s brain active and prepare for the new year. I think that making reading and writing fun is the key! And quick five to ten-minute daily practice of multiplication facts always helps. Creativity, play, rest, and fun are also very important to be included into each day before we are back to the school routine.
I plan to do whatever I can to support you as you are the primary educator of your child. I am open to communicating with you frequently. There will be many ways for you to be involved and to volunteer throughout the year. I look forward to finding out what your expertise and talents are and how they will fit into the curriculum. Please plan on attending the Parent Orientation Night when we will discuss curriculum, behavior expectations, routines and opportunities to volunteer. For regular classroom communication, I will email a weekly newsletter.
Mrs. Angie Fritz will continue to be the instructional aide for fourth grade. She is excellent and I feel extremely thankful that she is with us in fourth grade.
Each week throughout the year we have a different quote that is discussed and the students write about it. This quote is especially positive and motivating as we embark on a new school year!
“You’re off to great places. Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting, so get on your way.” -Dr. Seuss. See you all soon!
