     Welcome Back to School!

    Welcome to the 4th grade! I am looking forward to an exciting school year with you and your families.  I realize that teaching all of you is a remarkable gift and a great responsibility.  I will do my best to make sure that each and everyone of you have a motivating and safe learning experience.  I look forward to getting to know you and your families this year.  

    I hope to see all of your families on Tuesday, September, 18th for Back to School Night.  During that time, I will discuss our classroom routines more in depth, as well as the curriculum for fourth grade.
