4th Grade

Welcome Letter

September, 2018

Dear Parent/Guardian,

Welcome to the 2018/2019 school year. As many of you may already know some exciting changes have taken place. To begin with Grades 1-2 will be self-contained and grades 3-4 are departmentalized. Grades 1 and 2 the students will only have their classroom teacher. Grades 3 and 4 the students will move between classes. Each grade will have a homeroom where we will have morning prayer, announcements, attendance, as well as breakfast. Outside food is not permitted.

We must work together to ensure that your child has a positive and productive new year at Saint Joseph. Therefore, we are asking you adhere to the following:

  • Students are expected to be in their homeroom by 8:00 am sharp, daily.
  • Students are to be prepared daily with all materials needed (notebooks, pencils, folders, and textbooks).
  • Students are to be in proper uniform attire
  • Test papers and all graded assignments must be signed by a parents and returned to the teacher to be filed. (see Google Classroom for announcements.)
  • All classwork and homework must be completed along with projects on time.
  • Daily lessons should be reviewed on a daily basis to prepare for assessments.
  • Visit the school website and Google Classroom for announcements, reminders, and homework @saintjosephschoolbronx.org.
  • Review student handbook for policies and return the last page singed acknowledging you have read the handbook.

Below is a list of supplies each student needs in the classroom by September 14. Thanking you in advance for your help and support.
