EMBRACE * EDUCATE * EMPOWER
Welcome to Miss Cox's 4th Grade Class

           I am so excited to have your child in my class this year!  We are going to have a lot of fun in 4th Grade. This school year is going to be very exciting and busy as we learn and grow together. I cannot wait to get to know you and your child throughout the year!

This year is going to be an adventure! We are going to spend a lot time strengthening our reading and math skills so that your child will become a super sharp 4th grader and an ongoing learner!  We will learn many new things in science focusing on: analysis, inquiry, and design, physical setting and the living environment. In social studies we will learn about the history of New York including the people and the land-forms and physical features of New York State.
