Dear Families,

 Welcome to 4th grade!  I am looking forward to getting to know you and your child and working together to help your child succeed!  As parents and guardians, I understand that you are the most important teachers in your child’s life and it is with that understanding that I appreciate the role that you and I each play in the partnership to your child achieving the goals set forth for him or her.  I would like to take this opportunity to give you a brief overview of myself.  I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Child Development from SUNY Cobleskill and my Master’s Degree in Childhood Education from the College of St. Rose.  Although this is only my second year at CVCS, I have nine years of experience in the field of education. 

In addition to having your child in my homeroom class, I will be teaching your child E.L.A. and Social Studies this year.  It is my personal goal to instill a lifelong passion of reading and writing in all of my students.  I have very high expectations of myself as a teacher as well as of my students and I have always found that to be a formula for success!  I want this to be an enjoyable year for all of my students but also a productive, challenging, and encouraging year.

My main objective in writing this letter is to get to know the families of my students.  Making your child feel comfortable in our classroom is a major part of his or her success as a student as well as mine as a teacher.  I thank you in advance for taking the time to read this letter.  In addition to this letter, if you have any other concerns, please feel free to contact me.  Communication is a huge part of your child’s success.  If you have any questions/concerns, would like to visit our classroom or schedule a conference, do not hesitate to email me at wood.megan@charlottevalley.org.

Once again, welcome to 4th grade!  I know that, together, we can make this a wonderful school year!



Mrs. Hassick
