Classroom Spotlight 🔦 4th Grade Teachers - Mr. Boskovski & Ms. Dixon

This month the fourth-grade students at Pardee used many skills with daily life activities. Through our curriculum, we have found ways to apply it to life skills. We learned about working together, being creative, and learning how to help others. The one activity that stood out to our students was spreading cheer through our hallways. We decorated our lockers using these skills in our curriculum and transferring them to everyday life.

We enjoyed watching the students using what they are learning, working together, and being able to those "Ah- ha" moments of why we know certain things in skills.

We are so proud of these students' accomplishments over this first part of the year and can't wait to see them continue in 2022.


From our fourth-grade family to yours, Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!

Reporting Absences📞

We request that parents call the Pardee Absence line at 313-203-1466 before 9:30 am when their child is absent from school. A robocall will not be sent if the parent has notified the office of their child’s absence through the Pardee absence line. Parents are encouraged to leave a message including the name of the student, the person making the call, and the reason for the absence on the absence line. The office will return calls as needed. We hope that this process will support improved communication between the school and the parents/guardians.
