Spotlight On - 4th Grade!

4th grade is continuing to focus on team building and relationships. We are working on multi digit addition and subtraction, as well as introducing the metric system in math. In our fiction unit of study we are adventuring through many subgenres of fiction. We also are moving through our Science unit on rocks, as well as a Social Studies mini unit on the election process.

Meet Our ESL Team!

English as a Second Language (ESL) is a program designed for students whose native language is not English. The goal of the program is to help students develop English language proficiency, particularly Cognitive Academic Language Proficiency (CALP), so that they can function independently in the mainstream classroom. In order to qualify for these services, a parent completes a Home Language Survey. If another language beside English is checked, the ESL department will administer an English Placement Test and the results will determine what kind of services the student will attain. There are three different types of services: Intensive, Supportive, and Transitional. The support that these students can receive in the school can consist of modifications in the classrooms and accommodations for testing. The ESL team is led by Mrs. Miriam Buie. Mrs. Buie has been part of our Cool Cat Family since 1998. Alongside with Mrs. Buie is Mrs. Renee Mastrangelo. Mrs. Renee has joined our team in 2019. They both work closely together to help support our students with the English language. You can reach Mrs. Buie at 910-815-6909 x 76972. She’s always willing to help in any way she can.
