Dear Fourth Grade Student,
I am happy to welcome you to the Fourth Grade! I look forward to a very exciting and productive 2020-2021 school year. Fourth Grade is a wonderful time in your life. You will experience an incredible amount of growth and have many opportunities for great accomplishments and success throughout the year. We will be working as a team to help ensure your continued development at Martha Gaskins Elementary. We will be working on learning to better manage your time, work cooperatively, develop good study habits, and strive to achieve to your highest potential.
You will learn all about our solar system, electricity, and ecosystems in Science. In Social Studies, you will learn about the history of Alabama, and in Reading and Language Arts, you will engage in guided reading and word study. In Math, you will develop your skills in whole number operations, fractions, decimals, percent, and geometry.
In addition, you will be part of a team who will participate in many fun-filled Fourth Grade activities! Students who maintain an A/B average are invited to participate in the Choir, Orff, Band, and BETA Club!
If you do not have the Fourth grade supply list, please go to the supply list link to access it. Please be sure that you have all of the items on the list and have labeled them with your name. You may bring in your supplies to the orientation or on the first day of school. I look forward to meeting all of you and am very excited about the upcoming school year. Enjoy the remainder of the summer and I will see you soon.
Mrs. S. Douglas
