I encourage you to be
a partner in your child’s education!
Welcome to Ms. Cervantes' 4th grade class at Buena Vista Elementary School!
We have a very busy and exciting year in store for us! In our 4th grade classroom, all students will enjoy a program that is engaging and appropriate for addressing each individual student’s needs. Your child will work toward meeting and exceeding state standards and toward acquiring the tools/skills necessary for his/her future, academically and otherwise. Each student will have the opportunity to develop his/her reading, writing, math and other academic skills and knowledge through our reading and math programs and a wide variety of literature, hands-on activities, historical resources, scientific inquiry, manipulatives, realia, and technology. Students will be engaged in activities that develop higher level thinking skills as they work together to increase their knowledge and develop social skills.
I realize that teaching your child is a privilege, as well as a tremendous responsibility. I will do my best this year to ensure that each student has a motivating and safe learning experience in the classroom. However, I cannot do this alone. I need your help. We both need to be partners in the learning process. I need each of you to encourage your child at home by helping to ensure that they have completed their assignments, and help them study for quizzes, if necessary. I know with your help that we are going to have a great year!
