25 Vs: Rigsby/Parker

We are up to 25 students! While we don't have a teaching assistant in 4th grade- we are lucky to have Ms. Parker to keep us company. Ms. Parker is volunteering with us from the 'Foster Grandparent' program. She's worked with students at Claxton for a few years. Ms. Parker loves to "help children learn how to read!" Between the two of us we are giving your child as much love and attention as we can throw at them. However, please be patient if we send the Thursday folder home on Friday, or forget to send an extra copy of a form home. Our focus is on keeping your child safe and teaching them what they need to know to be successful in 4th grade!

What We Are Learning

  • Math: Place Value, Rounding, Comparing Numbers- TEST FRIDAY
  • Reading: mClass Reading Testing

Finding Mrs. Rigsby

If your child has a change in how they are going home- please send a note with your child or call the classroom and leave a message. I try to check my email often- but once I'm teaching I don't stop! Please let me know how I can help your student be successful.
