Dear 4th Grade Families,
      Welcome to a brand new school year!  Can you believe its already here?  I hope you had an awesome summer and made lots of great memories with your family and friends.  Are you looking forward to a brand new adventure in Fourth Grade?  It is an exciting year and I can promise you that it will be filled with all kinds of new and interesting learning opportunities...and some time for fun, too!

      If you just found out that I am your teacher for the year, be on the look out for a letter to arrive in the mail very soon.  It will contain a list of school supplies that might be good to have this year.  If you are really excited to get out and go shopping for supplies right away, then please check out the Supply List link at the left.  It will give you the same information contained in your letter.

     On Tuesday, August 28th, I will hold a Meet & Greet in my classroom from 2:00 - 3:00 pm.  This is a great time to come meet me, take a sneak peek at our classroom for the year, and maybe stow your supplies in your desk so you don't have to lug them into school on the first day. 

     One additional note to families:  Our class will be a peanut/nut free classroom this year.  I will have information to hand out to you at the Meet & Greet that will explain this in greater detail.  If you cannot attend the Meet & Greet then I will send home the information with your child on the first day of school.
      I am very anxious to meet and get to know all of you this year.  I hope I will see everyone at the Meet & Greet on Tuesday.  I'm looking forward to a fantastic year together!  Enjoy the last few days of summer and I will see you very soon!

PS  Please don't hesitate to get in touch with me if you have any questions or concerns.  You may e-mail me at or call the school phone at 635-8875 ext. 1828
