Mrs. Hildebrand's 4th Grade Class

September 16 - September 20

Back to School Night

It was so great to meet with all of our parents! If you were unable to join us, you can access our presentation at

We figured out the Library on Edmodo! Only students have access to our library, so parents will need to log into their student's account if they would like to view it. To view links and documents posted in our Edmodo library, click on "Hildebrand's 4th Grade" on the left side under "Groups" (or any other group you would like to view). Then click on "Folders" and it will direct you to the folders we have created in our library. Please let us know if you still have trouble finding these documents and links.

If we have a document or link that is only for parents, we will attach it in a post sent only to parents. You will then have access to it directly from there.
