  • 4th Grade
I have enjoyed teaching at Notre Dame. This school is such a special place because there is a close partnership between teachers and families. The families are so involved and supportive of their children’s education. When I'm not teaching and in my spare time, some of my favorite activities are gardening with my husband, going to farmer's markets, running, and spending time with my baby boy.

Here’s where you’ll find all things 4th Grade, including important news, homework procedures, and our wishlist.

Throughout the school year, we want to focus on our school theme and remember to Fully Rely OGod.

~Picture order forms are due September 20.

~Box Tops are due September 28.



Student Planners & Binders:  Students record homework in their planners daily.  Parents/guardians, please make sure your are checking and signing your child’s planner each day after your child has completed all homework.  Together look through the folders for homework, parent forms, corrected work, etc.  Review these things together with your child.  Following is more information on some common weekly homework assignments your child will receive.

Math worksheets will be coming home on almost a daily basis.  Please have your child complete the homework and return it to school the next school day.  Students will get an opportunity to correct and mistakes they have made.  Corrected mistakes will receive partial credit and the new grade will be circled.

Reading Logs will be sent home on Mondays in your child’s binder.  Students should read the required minutes, complete the front and back of the reading log, and get a parent/guardian signature once complete.  Following are the reading requirements:
1st Trimester = 1oo minutes
2nd Trimester = 120 minutes
3rd Trimester = 140 minutes

Spelling lists will be sent home on Mondays.  Spelling tests will usually be on the following Friday.  Spelling homework will be sent home on Mondays and is due on Friday of that week.  Practice writing and spelling the words at home daily.  Students who have spelled every word correct on the pretest are exempt from the Spelling homework and test for that week.

Students will have other work to complete in addition to those assignments above.  As always, contact me if you have a question in regards to student assignments.

Learning Link

An extra fun learning task to connect your learning at school to home and the outside world.
Week of 9/17:

Make a Family Tree
We’ve started to chart the family tree of Adam and Eve. Make your own family tree going as far back as you can in your ancestry.  Use drawings, words, or photos.  Bring in your family tree to share with the class.  Remember that eventually all family trees would trace back to Adam and Eve.

Vertebrate or Invertebrate
In Science, we are learning about grouping animals by those that have a backbone – vertebrate – and those that do not have a backbone – invertebrate.  Record animals you see or know of in a vertebrate and invertebrate chart.  Share your findings with your family or class.

Wish List

  • New or gently used chapter books to be used for our classroom library – would especially like some holiday themed books, as well as other topics
