…seeing my students happy. We had an interesting day. We started by helping Mr. Short set up for the fifth grade promotion. We then had an all school “clap off” for the fifth grade. Afterwards we helped clean up after the promotion-but were rewarded with cookies. Then we said our final goodbyes to each other.

Many thanks for the wonderful gifts, messages, cards and hugs. I hope everyone has a wonderful summer.

Signing off for 2016-2017 fourth grade school year-peace!

Fourth Grade Talent Show, Farewell Party and Two Great Room Moms!


The fourth graders performed today-dances, songs, gymnastics, jokes and a little magic. It was very fun!

In the afternoon we were treated to a wonderful farewell party. Each student received a beach ball to use to collect autographs. Then we had cupcakes and juice.

I want to give a BIG shout out of THANKS to Mrs. Batha and Mrs. Harajli. They have worked all year to make our classroom parties and celebrations fun and memorable. Also, thanks to all of you who were able to help in many other valuable ways:chaperoning  field trips, sending in treats for parties or birthdays, or helping your student with special projects throughout the year.

Again, many thanks for all you have done to make our year together successful!

Good Evening Parents,

Students will get an envelope with a few things inside: parent copy of the final report card, a suggested fifth grade supply list, a fourth grade patch tag and a couple of extra student photo stickers.  You may keep the envelope with all the goodies inside.


My heart felt thanks for all of your support, cooperation and friendship throughout this school year.

Take care-have a safe and wonderful summer-hope to see you next year.

I can no other ANSWER make but thanks, and thanks and ever thanks…W. Shakespeare

Today was very hot…especially in our classroom. We still managed to invite one of the third grade classes in to share some of our fourth grade expertise. Students were in pairs and discussed life in fourth grade. It was fun. Here are some photographs of the books the class made called, Diary of a Fourth Grader.

stay cool,

All students should bring a bagged lunch. Also, they can bring sports equipment, hula hoops, bubbles, cards, and anything else they would like for some fun in the sun!

Looks like it is going to be HOT! We have parents who are bringing watermelon slices and other cool treats.

We hope you can stop by and visit for a while.

Many thanks for all you support and help throughout the school year.

One more week of fourth grade! I am posting photographs that I took of the class the first week of school. I asked them to find something in the room that represented their interests. Some chose books,others art supplies and some toy figures from comics or movies. Our end of the year picnic will be on MONDAY…we will walk over to Levagood around 9:15. Since it looks to be the hottest day of year so far we may come back to school closer to 2:00. I hope you can stop by and visit for part of our day. Many thanks to all of you for making this a wonderful year!

Pond Study Photographs!

Students were able to use aqua nets to scoop off the top of  the pond. They emptied their nets into a large, deep tray. They examined what was in the tray-lots of living things!!! Tadpoles, water bugs, plants and more!
