Note from Mr. Mushegan for August

Welcome to the 4th grade and Room 12! Please plan on attending “Back to School” night on August 23rd at 5:30 pm. At that time, I will go over the requirements and expectations for this exciting year of learning.

Below is a list of items I am recommending each student have by the second week of school. Students will not be required to cover textbooks this year since several books are consumable, and we will be using several websites as part of our curriculum.

I update the front page of our MVRoom12 website ( once a month with a short note from me and what we are learning.  A link on the webpage called Homework Calendar connected to the page that I update whenever a new assignment is given.  At the top of that page is a “Subscribe to Post” link, which emails you whenever I make a change to our homework calendar.  Even though we take time as a class to update our student planners at the end of the day, this is a great webpage for parents to see what homework is due and when. I highly suggest parents, and even students, subscribe to this post!

Fourth grade is a challenging, yet fun, year that I am enthusiastically looking forward to.

See you at “Back to School” night!
Mr. Mushegan
