It’s off to Jamestown we go! On November 19th, we will be going on one of the highlights of fourth grade field trips. Please return the field trip form and the $25 fee as soon as possible. If you would like to be considered for a chaperone, please fill out the bottom but do not send a fee at this time. I hope to take all willing parents, but if I have more volunteers than I’m allowed to take, I will be “pulling names out of a hat”. Looking forward to it!


Dear Families,

Please remember to send in a small snack each day with your child. I have 3-5 students every day without a snack. I have gone through all the snacks that parents have sent in and I have had to buy additional ones to hand out. In addition, snack time is during reading centers and the students asking for a snack are interrupting the reading group working with me. So, please remember to pack one each day. Thank you!


Dear Families,

Inside today’s folders there are a few papers that are of importance.

  1. Permission slip for Young Scientists (please submit along with payment by Oct. 5)
  2. T-shirt order form (please submit along with payment by Oct. 5)
  3. Supply request for a project your child is doing in class – shoebox or photo box and 4-5 colors of modeling clay. Supplies due on Oct. 5.

Thank you!


I look forward to seeing you all at Back-To-School Night on Thursday, September 20th. It’s a wonderful opportunity to see what your student will be doing this year. This is a time for parents and teachers to talk so please arrange child care, if possible.  See you then!

Welcome to fourth grade! I am looking forward to our year together! Thank you, parents, for sharing your child with me each day. We are going to learn a great deal and have fun doing it!

On the blog, you will find the homework posted daily, important posts for you to be aware of, what we are learning each week, and our daily schedule. Please check the blog often because it is one of the many ways for me to communicate with my families.

Thank you and I know it’s going to be a great school year!
