Welcome to Fourth Grade!!
There are seven fourth grade classrooms in our school. Each one has a highly qualified teacher who is dedicated to your child's learning. This year the fourth grade is set up in pods, one pod is Gold and the other pod is Purple. All the classes with be self contained, meaning they will only have 1 teacher all year long.
In fourth grade, students are now at the last grade in GES. They have formed friendships, learned from many wonderful teachers and are preparing to move on into the middle school. Their teachers will encourage them to read, write and learn this school year.
The learning process is one that involves three parties: the student, the parents and their teachers. Working together as a team with your child's teacher will show your child that education is important and that you support your child and his teacher in his learning.
Griffith Elementary school wants to let you and your child know that attendance is a must (AIM). Being here at school is an important, but please remember when your child has a fever, stomach bug or diarrhea they cannot return to school till they have been free of the symptoms for 24 hours.
The fourth grade teachers would like to welcome you into their classrooms and look forward to having a wonderful year of learning with you and your child.
We would like to encourage you to read with your child each day for at least 20 minutes. The more you read with your child the better their reading and comprehension will become.
