Teacher Notes

Parents -

Please continue to go over work that comes home in your child's Friday Folder. Review mistakes your child made on math, science, and social studies assignments to help clarify any misunderstandings. Also, continue to have your child memorize their multiplication facts. 5 to 10 minutes of practice per night can make a HUGE difference!

Thank You for your continued support with your child's success in 4th Grade!
