Welcome to 4th Grade
2021-2022 Marvelous Minions!
Dear Students and Families,
I am so excited that we are going to be learning together this year. 4th grade is a lot of fun! Thank you for joining this journey with me!
One of my favorite things to teach is history. I am so excited to teach all about Idaho history this year. I love to travel around the country and learn about the history with teachers from all over the country. I can’t wait to share my love of history with my students.
A successful 4th grade year depends on a strong partnership between school and home. I am looking forward to being part of the team to help each student be successful this year. We (teachers, students, and parents) must take an invested role in our learning team.
Parents and families, thank you in advance for your help and support in helping your child at home. I know that it is challenging balancing school, work, and family obligations, and I want you to know that you are greatly appreciated.
Students, I am so glad that you are in my class. I am thrilled that we get to learn together this year. Please come prepared to learn. Your preparation is the key to your success and the success of our class. Your growth mindset, positive attitude, hard work, great behavior, and willingness to try new things will make all of the difference this year. Remember the power of “yet”. You may not have it yet, but with good effort, you can make progress! It is going to be a great year!
Spelling will start during the week of September 13-17.
Please contact me if you have any questions, concerns, or if you would just like to share some kind words :) Thank you in advance for all of your help. Let’s make it a great year!
