Fourth Grade

Welcome! ¡Bienvenidos! Bienvenue! 你好 Nǐ hǎo

Our primary goal as a fourth grade team is to facilitate, nurture and guide our students as they become more independent and responsible for their education.  Fourth grade has a 2-way and a 3-way split. Students in the 2-way split will spend half of their day with a teacher teaching reading, language arts, and social studies and the other half of their day with a teacher teaching math and science. Students in the 3-way split will transition between three classes each day. There will have one teacher teaching reading and language arts, a teacher teaching math, and a teacher teaching science and social studies. Our philosophy is to provide the opportunity for EVERY student to achieve an outstanding education as well as to acquire a lifelong love of learning.
