Fourth Grade

Year of Possibility 2016-2017

–Dear 4th Grade students and parents:

We have a very fun and exciting year ahead!  Fourth grade is full of amazing events and activities centered around the rich 4th grade curriculum.  4th grade is also an important year for students to take on more responsibilities.  I will do my very best to help my students gain confidence in their abilities both academically and spiritually.  Please check out the Back to School page for many more specific details about the school year ahead.  Thank you so much!

Fondly,

Mrs. Kathy Oates
