      Please take a look through this homepage and the different tabs on this website; it will be a great tool for keeping informed throughout the year.






Important Information

We hope you and your family are staying well and taking care of each other. 

We are getting ready to start our new adventure of distance learning on Tuesday, March 24. Since this is new to everyone, the fourth-grade team wanted to share our perspective and expectations before we begin with any lessons. 


  • We understand that you need to do what is best for you and your family each day. We know this may look different day-to-day. Less is more, and go with the flow.


  • Kids will remember how they were taken care of/felt during this time. 

 

  • Lots can be learned from spending time with one another, talking about shared experiences, sharing something that was learned independently, and following a passion. Remember to have fun! 

 

  • Teachers will adjust when school resumes-whenever that might be; kids will not be left behind.


Thank you in advance for your patience and flexibility as we work through all of this together. We will email daily lessons each morning beginning tomorrow. 


Sincerely,

The Fourth Grade Team

Jeannette, Paula, and Mandy
