Fourth grade is going to be an exciting academic year for your child. We believe that Fourth Grade is a time for student growth and transitioning into becoming independent learners.  Fourth grade standards focus on developing the critical-thinking and problem-solving skills that students will need to be successful throughout their academic careers.  We are committed to helping each student become more confident in their abilities as thinkers and learners.
