Mrs. Waters- 4th Grade Class


                  WELCOME TO A NEW YEAR!  I am very excited to have your child in my classroom!  I am looking forward to a fun and productive year.   I encourage you to get involved in your child’s learning.  You can help your child by keeping track of what he/she is doing on a daily basis, checking homework, reading with your child, showing interest in what your child is learning, and encouraging good behavior in school.

                Every Tuesday your child will bring home a Tuesday folder.  The Tuesday folder will contain papers to be signed and returned, newsletters, and/or any other notes for you or your child.  Please look over your child’s papers as he/she has worked hard and is proud of his/her accomplishments.  Sign and return the appropriate papers and the folder every Wednesday. 

                Homework is a great way for your child to practice and reinforce skills that he/she is learning at school.  This is also a great way for you to see what we are working on and how your child is doing.  Your child will receive a reading log every Monday.  Please have your child read 20 minutes a night.  Sign the log and return on Thursday.  They made read a book from home or readers provided from the classroom.     

Attached you will find a copy of our class rules.  Please read and discuss these with your child.  Good conduct is class promotes good learning.  I will send home a weekly conduct grade in the Tuesday folder.  This grade is an average for the previous week (Monday-Friday).

                This will be a great school year!  I am sure with your cooperation and support it will be even better!  Please call me at school if you have any questions.  The number in the office is 929-2691.  The school will leave a message and I will return your call as soon as possible.  You can also check out our school website, www.blanchardelementary.com .  It provides a link to my teacher website where you will find lots of information and news that you can use throughout the year.
