Welcome to the 4th Grade! My name is Mrs. Johnson; I will be one of your child’s teachers for the year. Fourth grade is slightly different from your child’s previous years, we are departmentalized. Instead of having 1 teacher, teaching all 5 core subjects (Reading, Language Arts, Social Studies, Math, and Science) your child will have 4 teachers (5 including their specials). I will be your child’s Reading teacher. If your child is in my Homeroom class, I will also be their Social Studies and Character Ed teacher as well.
I believe that to make a student successful, teachers and parents must join together in one effort. Please believe that I only want the best for your child. Please feel free to contact me whenever you have a question or concern about something in our class. Communication is the key to being effective. You may always call the school office and leave a message for me. Also, you may always contact me through email at email@example.com. I regularly check that address, and will answer as soon as I get the message. I also have a class website, http://kmjohnson.educatorspages.com. Here I will try to constantly update you on what’s going on inside and out of the classroom as well as homework. As far as homework goes, we as a team have our individual class days. Reading homework will be given on Mondays and Wednesdays. Make sure you regularly check PowerSchool to check your child’s progress through out the year.
I am looking forward to a fantastic, interesting and productive school year. I will do all that I can to see that every student has a successful fourth grade experience.
