Welcome to 4th Grade!

Summer 2022

A Message from Your 4th Grade Teachers!

Dear Parents,

We are looking forward to meeting you in September! We hope your child is excited to begin Fourth Grade. Enclosed you will find the materials needed to prepare for the upcoming year. Summer reading and math work and fourth grade supplies are due by Monday, September 12, 2022.

  • Summer Reading Assignment: The summer reading books are Planet Omar Accidental TROUBLE Magnet by Zarib Mian and Escape from Mr. Lemoncello's Library by Chris Graberstein. Either book will fulfill the requirements, but your child is welcome to enjoy both novels. Your child should complete the comprehension packet for Planet Omar Accidental TROUBLE Magnet OR Escape from Mr. Lemoncello's Library. We are looking forward to celebrating both stories in September.
  • Math Enrichment: Students have been given Summer Math Skills Sharpener workbooks to complete throughout the summer. Please be sure your child completes a few pages each week to keep their math skills sharp for the start of the school year. Practicing math facts for rapid and accurate recall is encouraged.
  • Supply List: In addition to the stationery provided by the school, we are asking that each child brings in the supplies on the list provided.

We wish you and your child a fun and relaxing summer. See you on September 7th for Book Day!

Each year, Mrs. Phiambolis, our Librarian, creates an *optional* reading challenge for students. This is separate from the grade level summer reading assignments and a great way to keep children reading. Recommendations are below. Have fun!
