Welcome Fourth Grade Families,

I am excited to see you at Meet and Greet sometime next week.  School officially begins Tuesday, September 8th at 8:30 am.

We look forward to working with you to support your child during Fourth Grade. Ms. Martin, Mrs. Morris and I are the Fourth Grade Team. I am your child’s homeroom teacher and will work with my class on Reading, Writing, Religion, Social Studies and Science. Ms. Martin will be teaching Math to both homerooms. Mrs. Morris will support the students across all academic areas in small groups, as well as help the teachers create materials. Students will continue to have Music, PE, Art and Spanish with the Specialists. A new addition this year is a “School Counseling with Ms. Shaw Classroom” that students can access through Google Classroom.

Google Classroom will be our home base this year. Everything for our classroom will live in our Google Classroom – schedules, links, assignments, etc. When in doubt, check our Google Classroom. While the majority of our learning will be through our Google Classroom, we will communicate with parents directly through email every Sunday.

Zoom will be the platform that we will use for all of our synchronous live lessons. Each teacher will have one consistent Zoom Room. The links for these rooms will not change. The links for these Zoom Rooms are embedded in our schedule which will always live in our Google Classroom.


Your child will begin each day at 8:30am in our homeroom for attendance, Morning Meeting, and Religion. At that time, we will discuss the schedule of the day. We will end the day with closing and prayer for dismissal at 3pm. Please empower your student to be in our lessons independently.
