Welcome to Fourth Grade - Karen Desposito karen.desposito@smusd.org

Hello Families,

It is hard to believe that once again we are ready to start another school year. Fourth grade is a very exciting year and I have some wonderful experiences planned for each of my students. I hope that your summer break was as fun and enjoyable as mine. I used my summer time to rejuvenate, relax, and spend time with family before getting ready for another year in fourth grade. I am part of an amazing team and hope you will find many wonderful experiences as we go through fourth grade together.

The year 2015-2016 brings some exciting curriculum updates. During the last few years and over the summers our district has been writing new curriculum in math, reading, writing, and social studies to meet the up with Common Core standards. Lucky fourth grade to have three teachers writing three different curriculum areas. We have experts already on board. I have been fortunate to be involved in the writing of the math curriculum for fourth grade. Many other teachers at Discovery have also been writing curriculum.

This year we welcome, Mrs. Bedard as our new assistant principal along with other new teachers on campus. Our custodial staff has worked hard over the summer to have our campus clean and safe for the return of our students. Please use this website to keep current with the happenings in Room 25. I will be keeping it current and am hoping to have students be a part of that update also.

Keeping in touch,
Mrs. Desposito
