Welcome to 4th Grade!

Fourth grade is a special year. Your child will go through many changes physically, socially, emotionally, and intellectually. We truly hope that these changes are positive, exciting, and unforgettable. As your child matures they will be expected to assume more of the responsibilities for their own learning. Fourth grade is a crucial time for development in maturity, accountability, and respect; therefore, the integration of those skills with be a part of our daily routine in our classroom.


Parent/guardian involvement is essential to student success, and we encourage parents/guardians to be actively involved in their children’s education and co-curricular activities. Be assured that we will actively be working along with the 4th grade teaching team in an effort to help your child reach their full potential. Our team approach is designed to assist your child to achieve success. Furthermore, we encourage you to communicate with us throughout the school year. You may reach us via email at wschott@norridge80.net, or sdevito@norridge80.net, or you can call the school office and be connected to our classroom line.

Students having difficulty are encouraged to schedule a time to meet with us before school, after school or during recess. We are always open to helping our students in any way - just ask! Also, we post on our website every evening to update parents/guardians on homework from the day or classroom/school announcements. We also use Text Remind, which is a texting application that reaches out to parents/guardians each evening to remind them of homework & any important announcements. We encourage you to check those text message updates, and frequently visit the classroom website to stay up-to-date.


Thank you! Let's have a great year!
