School is out for the summer!  Enjoy your summer!

If you are looking forward to the school year already, below is my letter for the beginning of the year.

August 2014

Dear Parents and Students,

Welcome to fourth grade!  I hope that you had a wonderful summer!

Please make sure that you have all your supplies ready to go!  The list is below.

Our school year will be filled with many fun and challenging activities to further our learning and understanding of the world.  This is a new adventure and as you know with every new adventure you will need the equipment necessary to succeed (and stay organized).  An academic planner (agenda) will be provided by the school.  This is a great way of staying organized with homework and long-term assignments as well as communication between the parents and the teacher. 

If you have any question please feel free to email me, as my voicemail will not be available until school starts. [email protected].  Email is also the best method to reach me during the school year.  So if you would take the opportunity to email me with an email address that I can contact you, that would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you very much for your cooperation and support.  I am looking forward to a great year. 

I am looking forward to a wonderful year.
