Welcome to Mrs. Picone's Fourth Grade class, a year to shine! Just a little about myself...I have been teaching since 1990! Wow,that is a wonderfully long time to be doing something you love. Some other things I also love are coffee, reading, hiking(Mt. Rogers), biking and our new family favorite activity. kayaking! I look forward to being a part of your family team this year as your child grows and learns.

So what are fourth graders really like?

The elementary school years are soon coming to an end and your fourth grader is still developing....and at a rapid pace!! The following site gives a great insight into the cognitive growth your child is experiencing. *Please remember that each child has his/her own journey and will reach these milestones differently.
