Welcome To Our Class Page!
Welcome to FOURTH Grade!
Teaching your child is a tremendous responsibility and I will do my best to ensure that each student has a safe and motivating learning experience in this upcoming year. However, I cannot do this without the help of you, the parents. We are partners in the learning process.
I believe that parent-teacher relationships are necessary for maximum school success. Throughout the remainder of the year, I will communicate through my website, notes, telephone calls, emails, report cards, and parent-teacher conferences. I encourage you to contact me if you have any questions or concerns at any time. You can call me at the school, send me a written note or contact me via email.

Reminders to Grade 4 Parents:
Beginning this Friday, students will walk to the library each week in order to check out a book, learn library skills and partner with our community organization to increase literacy achievement. The expectation is that students will be able to pick a book that they will commit to reading independently, or out loud with you, for at least 20 minutes a night.
We cannot emphasize enough how important it is to have your child read for at least 20 minutes a night in a book of his or her choice – even if the book seems too easy! Building a reading habit like this helps students to develop literacy for life skills.
The good news is that in order to become a better reader, students simply need to read! Studies show that students who read 20 minutes a day outside of school acquire 1,800,000 words per year and generally score on the 90th percentile on standardized tests! Comparatively, students who read only five minutes a day, say through social media, road signs, etc. acquire only 282,000 words a year, generally scoring on the 50th percentile or below.
Reading is the easiest way to help your child succeed – here at school we are helping them to build a rich reading life through our weekly library visits. At the beginning of the year, you signed a “Community Walk Permission Form”. This form allows your child to attend our weekly library trips, utilize resources and facilities at Bishop Loughlin and enjoy our neighborhood parks and resources. If we do not have your Community Walk form on file, you can expect a copy to come home this Wednesday in your child’s red folder. Please be sure to check the folder.
Please note, if your child requires an EpiPen or Asthma inhaler and cannot self-administer, the academy requests that a parent or guardian is present for our trips.
Thank you for your continued collaboration in your child’s education!
