Welcome to Mrs. Ligon's Class

Welcome to a wonderful year of fun and learning in fourth grade!  I am excited to be your child's fourth grade teacher for the 2016-2017 school year. Fourth grade is a transitional year for the students. It is the first year of "Upper Grade" and a year that students begin to prepare for the expectations that will follow after elementary school.  Students will find that they need to be more responsible, organized, accountable, and independent with their classwork, homework, and behavior.  I look forward to a year of growth and enjoyable activities.
