Mrs. Elias, 4th Grade
Welcome back to school! Fourth grade is an exciting year. It was a pleasure to meet your child today. Your child may get to meet more friends in a class of 34 or so students, and there definitely is a lot to learn! They can earn a trip to Knott’s Berry Farm based on citizenship and study habits. If they work really hard, they can earn academic recognition. We will be incorporating AVID strategies in our class this year! Cedargrove Elementary School has had school wide themes for the last several years. This year is “Cedargrove, Go for the Gold”. Our class will have fun incorporating this theme with our mini-society in class. Class Dojo is also used in our class to keep parents informed on what is going on in the class. Students have fun earning points and updating their class profile. I publish the homework on it daily, as well as an important events. The class code will go home soon!
Homework will be assigned on a daily basis. Your child must also read for at least 30 minutes daily and document it on a Reading Log chart that will be due every Friday. Binder Reminder Agendas (homework planners) are available for your child to purchase for $5.00. The homework planner will help your child stay organized, establish responsibility, and is a major part of the AVID strategies. Students are expected to bring their AVID folders back and forth from home with their agendas and homework in it every day.
I look forward to meeting all of you over the next few weeks. Meet the Teacher Night is September 7th at 6pm, PTA meeting at 5:30. If you have any questions, please feel free to stop by after school or contact me by email.
