Dear Students and Families,
Welcome to fourth grade! I’m excited about the opportunity to get to know you, and I’m looking forward to a happy and productive school year. This year the school’s theme is, “One Team, One Goal, No Limits!”. This year my goal is to conduct as many academically enriching and interactive activities as possible !
Students are expected to be in class, on time, every day. Their presence in the classroom will enable them to gain the knowledge they need. Hamilton’s first bell rings at 8:40 a.m., and instruction begins promptly at 8:45 a.m. Each Monday, school finishes at 1:30 p.m. and Tuesday-Friday dismissal is at 3:10 p.m.
During this first week of school, the class will learn the routines and procedures for success in 4th grade. We will also collaboratively set our rules and consequences. A letter concerning this information will be forthcoming in the next week, once we have solidified our routines and procedures.
Students have 40 Books and Beyond reading homework every night with other subjects assigned as needed. Each night, students will be expected to bring home their homework agenda with their assignments written inside of it and necessary materials. Some assignments will be due the next day while some may be due on a specific date. An adult is to check the agenda each night and sign it. Students will be held accountable for their daily learning and assignments. I will make notations in the agenda concerning work and behavior. Homework will start Monday, 8-22-16.
If you have any questions or concerns, you can contact me at school (626) 396-5730 Ex. 26223 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org . I will do my best to return all calls and emails in a timely manner. Once again let’s work together to make this the best year ever! Thank you in advance for your support.
