Dear Parents and Students:

This year Mrs. Prario and I will be team teaching 4th and 5th grade curriculum in a block schedule setting.  My homeroom 4th graders will begin their day in Mrs. Prario's Block 1 Math class while her 5th graders will begin their day with me in language arts.  The language arts curriculum encompasses reading, writing, and grammar. This year, our new Benchmark English Language Arts curriculum will cover many science and social studies topics as well as provide a rigorous reading program.  I'm excited to dive into project-based learning with your child.  As this new curriculum lends itself beautifully to this learning format. Mrs. Prario will be covering a variety of math topics starting with place value and ending the year with geometry.

The two of us will be teaching Science, Social Studies, Physical Education, and Art to our homeroom classes. We look forward to planning many exciting lessons because as we all know, two heads are better than one!! As students move from room to room, they will be facing the same expectations for behavior and work ethic. 

Mrs. Prario and I share the same learning philosophies and will work together to make sure your child has a successful year. I look forward to meeting all of you and even seeing a few old friends again. We both have a lot of great activities planned for the first few weeks of school to help create an atmosphere of growth mindset as well as caring and respect toward peers.
We are also anxious to dive into the new 4th and fifth grade curriculum and get your children excited about learning. Our teams are blessed with an abundance of technology that we will be using to make learning incredible this year. 
Please take a look at our schedule below.  Hopefully, this will give you a better understanding of what a typical day looks like for your 4th grader.
