Fantastic Fourth Grade

Roll out the red carpet for the 2019-2020 4th graders! We look forward to a year full of opportunities, challenges, and success. Students will have the following three teachers this year:

Ms. Wash – ELA (Reading, Language Arts, and Writing)

Mrs. Mathew – Math and Health

Ms. Daprano – Science and Social Studies


To assist with organizing for three classes, please ensure your student has the necessary supplies that are listed on the 4th Grade Supply List.  The teachers will be using a combination of the binder, Class Dojo, and email to communicate information.

As upper grades school leaders, students are expected to follow class and school rules, be responsible for completing and turning in their classwork and homework, and be respectful to peers and adults.  At this age and grade, more responsibility from students is expected in regards to keeping up with assignments and materials. Utilizing the binder will be helpful for your student to stay organized.
