Mrs. Marchisello’s Fourth Grade Classroom
Merciful God, make me an instrument of your peace.
SJA Celebrating 51 Years of Catholic School Education
Welcome 4A Students and Parents,
The fourth grade program will provide an interactive classroom learning experience, as well as, many positive and challenging opportunities for your child to grow and learn in a God-centered environment. This school year, I will be teaching my students to recognize and develop their own God-given talents, so that they will be able to meet the challenges of a fourth grade student .
The fourth grade curriculum is provided for you on this website. I encourage you to refer to this guide throughout the school year so that developmental learning can take place both inside and outside our classroom. Our children are always engaged in the learning process whenever they experience a new game, learn a dance, instrument, or song, or while taking a family walk along a beach or nature trail. Your children expand their visions of the world around us whenever the visit a Cathedral, museum, historical site, and a local farm or library. All of these enriching family activities, along with encouraging their passions, will help your child come to school intellectually active and ready to share their interests with their classmates.
Thank you for visiting with us on the web! Your family’s faith, interest and concern shows how much you care and value Catholic School Education for your child. May our dear Lord bless and guide us as we teach our children to follow in the footsteps of Jesus, to continue His Mission, and find joy in the gift of sharing in God’s mercy.
Learning at home can be fun !!!!!!
