Welcome back to Hall School! I am so happy to be your fourth grade teacher! We are going to have a great year!
My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. Please feel free to email me any time, and I will get back to you as soon as possible. You may also write a note to set up a time for a meeting before or after school with me and send it to school with your child. If you have any concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me. I like to be in constant communication with you; as we are working together for the betterment of your child!
I sent home a letter last week to introduce myself to you. I purchased all the school supplies you will need for this year. You will find 2 folders, 4 notebooks, a box of crayons, one pen and two pencils already on your desk! If your parents would please send $2.00 to school with you, I would appreciate it very much. You will also need a pencil sharpener, which I will sell for 50 cents. If you would like to purchase a box of 10 markers, please send in an additional $1.00. I will replace your notebooks throughout the year for you as you complete them. Scissors and glue are provided in the classroom for your use.
If you would consider sending in boxes of tissues and Clorox wipes throughout the year, I would be very appreciative.
School begins this year at 8:50 a.m. and dismissal is at 3:10 p.m. One-session days end at 12:50 pm.
You will have homework every Monday - Thursday nights. It will consist of a Spelling assignment, a Math assignment, and a Reading/Writing assignment. Please write down your homework daily on the weekly Homework sheet I will hand out every Monday. Have your parents initial daily assignments on the sheet and return it to school Friday complete with a parent signature, and you will be rewarded!
Reading is a skill that only improves with practice! Please read at home nightly for 20 minutes and record it on the weekly Reading Log sheet I will give you every Monday. Please write a brief summary of each day's reading and return it to school every Friday. Parent signatures are required!
I am really looking forward to meeting you Thursday. It will be a one-session day! Mrs. Priest
