Fourth Grade 

Dear Parents and Guardians, 

As the holiday season approaches, we hope this newsletter finds you well. December is an exciting time and fourth grade is working hard on their schoolwork and preparing for the Holiday Concert during this short month. We appreciate your help in getting your children to school on time and prepared to learn each day. Please continue to encourage your children to read nightly, complete their reading logs, and come to school with charged iPads and sharpened pencils. 


Thank you for your continued collaboration and we wish you a wonderful December, 

Ms. Campbell, Ms. Hernandez, and Ms. Montalvo
