Our team understands that in fourth grade students begin to define themselves in terms of opinions, beliefs and values. During this year of tireless activity and ever expanding interests, fourth graders need security, understanding, encouragement and the opportunity to succeed. The classroom community provides fourth graders with opportunities to work on creative, self-initiated tasks, resolve conflicts with appropriate strategies, listen attentively and follow directions as well as assume the initiative in seeking help when needed. Our team departmentalizes to provide differentiated instruction to meet the needs of ALL of our learners.We look forward to working with all fourth graders and nurturing their growth and academic discovery.

4th Grade Homework Policy: Your students will have homework every night. Students are expected to read for 30 minutes, study for Virginia Studies, and practice their math facts every night. Occasionally, students may have other homework assignments, which students should be copying in their assignment notebook every day in class.
