Introduction:

Welcome to 4th Grade! There are many exciting and unique experiences for students to look forward to this year. We focus on meeting all students’ individual learning needs. We believe every child learns in his or her own unique way, and at his or her own pace. We strive to create an environment where everyone feels safe to take risks and try new things . Our classrooms are communities that support each other, learn from each other, and appreciate what each person has to offer. Students learn organizational skills to go along with the added responsibility of being in the upper grades.
