Dear Parents and Students,

Welcome to the fourth grade.  Our year will be full of learning and growing.  I hope you are excited about beginning the school year.

I am Jennifer Gwaltney and I will be teaching Math to all 4th grade students.   This will be my 15th year of teaching. I have previously taught Pre-K, First Grade, and Second Grade.  I graduated from Virginia State University with a BA in Individualized Studies with a major in English and a minor in Sociology.

On a personal note, I have been married to Charles for 32 years.   We have two children; Joseph and Randall. We also have 2 granddaughters; Alisa and Abigail.   I am a certified EMT and Firefighter 1 trained. I am a member of and volunteer with Surry Vol. Rescue Squad as well as Dendron Volunteer Fire Department. I am also an appointed member of the Surry County Industrial Development Authority Board. In my free time I love cooking, gardening, and reading.

If you need to contact me regarding your child, I can be reached here at Surry Elementary between 3:15 and 3:30.  If 

I am extremely excited about the upcoming year!!  Please join me in encouraging your child’s success!!!

Homework assignments will be posted in the classroom on the calendar under each subject area. It is each student's responsibility to copy assignments in the students agenda each morning.

My policy is that there are 4 parts to homework:

***Take assignments home

***Complete assignments

***Return assignments to class

There are consequences for missing homework excessively!!!!
