Welcome to our classroom.


Welcome to 4th grade! 
I am so excited to start another great school year with your children.  I have listed below a variety of ways that allow for best communication between us that will help make our year a success.  

Remind Text Alerts:  Remind is a text alert system for messaging parents.  You have the option to NOT download the app and simply receive the texts or you can download the remind app to have the message go there instead.  You can also reply back to text messages or send your own via the app back to me.  

Google Classroom: Students will use google classroom daily to work on assignments, keep track of project due dates, and locate websites they use for practice.  This is also a place that students can find directions or handouts from class.  I will post assignments there that need to be turned in and some that will have no due dates. Another app to keep on top of schedules is the pecschools app.  Visit to download the app.  Every few weeks I will submit a post there for the entire school to see what is happening in 4th grade!  

I am always willing to talk and share with you in a way that works best for you.  I love to talk with my parents and talk about your wonderful child.

Coming to an end

Even though this is the last week of school and I just thought I would share.

Tuesday: Rest and Relax day:  Wear Pjs and bring pillow and sleeping bag. We will read books and watch a movie.

Wednesday: Sumner Park Day: Bring your sports equipment to play outside all day.  We will have Little Cesars pizza, cookies, chips and drinks.

Thursday: End of the year assembly in the morning.  Red Nose picture and fun last day activities

It seems that life is going very fast as we flew right into 2nd quarter.  I don't post a lot on here and mainly on Remind but if you ever need anything from me, please don't hesitate to send me an email or text.

Another great year in 4th grade!

Welcome to another great year in 4th grade.  This year we have a student teacher joining us from Rockford University.  Ms.  Korte will be in our classroom until December and I am excited to introduce her to our class.  She spend 70 hours with my last year and this year she is back to complete her teaching degree.  How exciting is that.
