Our fourth-grade teachers are working throughout the year to help develop well-rounded students whom are ready to face the challenges of today’s society. During the fourth-grade year, we emphasize the development of reading and writing skills so that our students are successful in the classroom. We use modeling and hands-on activities in the classroom to encourage students to express themselves through their work.
