Welcome to 4th Grade!
    We're so excited to begin another fun filled school year! Taking on the role of a fourth grader at Merton Primary comes with special opportunities and responsibilities. Being the oldest students in the school, fourth graders are called upon to be role models and leaders. They can look forward to a year filled with many highlights, including one-to-one technology, engaging field trips that align with our curriculum, participation in Primary Pals (Student Senate), and developing into lifelong learners.  
    
Philosophy
    A classroom must first be a learning community driven by respect, equity, and consistency. The classroom environment holds high expectations for every student while encouraging students to take risks, make mistakes, and ask questions. We take pride in knowing each child in the classroom, and seek to understand and appreciate each child's uniqueness. Therefore, as teachers, we embody many roles to ensure that every child is provided with a meaningful education that empowers the pursuit of their goals and ambitions. We strongly believe that families are an integral part of learning success. Together, we are a team working to achieve a common goal: success for your child.
