 Welcome 4A Students and Parents,

This school year , our fourth grade curriculum 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. Throughout the semesters , I will be encouraging our 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 new dance, instrument, or song, or while taking a family walk along a beach or nature trail.  They will expand their visions of the world around us whenever they 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 support demonstrates 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 to find wonder as we explore our School’s theme ” Embrace God’s Universe .”

Peace,

Mrs. Marchisello
