2021-2022 Welcome Letter and Information

Hello, 4th grade students and guardians!
 
I am thrilled to have you in my class this upcoming year. Many of you know that this is my fourth year teaching but this will be my second year teaching the fourth grade. We are going to have a blast learning new 4th grade material. I am looking forward to meeting each of you at our Meet the Teacher Event (see Woodfin's homepage).

This school year, our focus is growing our minds, our independence, and our character!

It is my goal to engage each learner so that our learning is purposeful and concrete. We will have the opportunity to create, share, and present our learning as the year progresses to ensure that students are able to carry these skills with them into intermediate school and beyond.

I would like to share a few ideas to help your child get the most out of this year.  It is most important for your child to have a space at home in which they can engage in learning while at home. While our circumstance does not resemble 2020-2021 school year, there may still be times that we will need to do learning from home. It is best to be prepared for these situations by having a "nook" that your child can learn from without distractions. Additionally, students should have a routine or schedule at home that prepares them for success for the next school day. Students should arrive to school well rested and with all the supplies they need to begin their school day on the "right foot".
Expect my first contact via. phone/email within the first week or two of school, and we will move with further communication from there. Our digital platforms will be Google Classroom, as well as Seesaw. 

Again, I cannot wait to meet my 4th grade class!!
