Dear Future Fourth Grade Parents,    

    We are all so excited to meet our new class of students next fall!  Fourth grade holds so much in store  for them:  an entire year of Virginia Studies to learn about the history and geography of our state,  multi-digit multiplication and long division, coding with Lego eV3 robots and Minecraft EDU, PBL  projects, Google Classroom, flexible seating and tables, and so much more!   

    Supply lists are available on the school website. The fourth-grade team does have a few  requests, however.  Please DO NOT send in binders, pencil boxes, glittery notebooks, personal pencil  sharpeners or cute fidget spinners/eraser/toys.  These items will be sent back home on the first day.  We use the majority of the supplies as “community supplies” and can only fit a small amount of  materials inside classroom bins.  Optionally, students may bring in a SMALL pencil bag to hold any  special pencils or erasers, but we cannot take responsibility for lost items.  We know that students love  to have cute supplies, but the less-fancy ones are often best and longer lasting.  Students can  decorate notebooks and folders with markers and stickers as the year goes on.    

    The fourth grade math curriculum is very rigorous.  There is a lot of material that is covered at a fairly  quick pace.  To make sure that your child is well prepared, ​please practice multiplication and division  facts with your child this summer​.  Ideally, the students should know all math facts up to the 12’s  table, and be able to recite the answers at a quick pace. Please have your child read regularly, preferably 20 minutes a day​, to avoid summer slide. ​Tales of a  Fourth Grade Nothing​ by Judy Blume would be a great start!    Now that you officially have a 4th grader, you can take advantage of the “Every Kid in a Park” which  allows 4th graders and their families free entry into every National Park. Check out the details on the  National Park webpage. https://www.everykidinapark.gov/     

    We already have a lot of fun activities we’re planning to do, and we are so excited to meet everyone in August.  Have a fabulous summer!
