Dear Bright Fourth Graders,

    WELCOME to a year filled with Reflection, Opportunity, Yearlong Growth, Beginnings, Inquiry, and Vision. This year you will fill your “pot of gold” with a wealth of knowledge. Are you ready to shine?

    Your teachers, Mrs. Tennison, Mrs. Pratt and Mrs. Hausman often get together for planning meetings and lots of fun! We have spent our summers outside bike riding, boating, hiking, swimming, and traveling. 

    Recently, we have been getting our own kids ready for their new school years in elementary, middle school, high school, college, and beyond!  

    You will have many opportunities to show your true colors this year in fourth grade. Some of our special events include field trips to Belwin, the Minnesota History Center, Fort Snelling, and the Minneapolis Institute of Art. We will also be taking a riverboat ride along the Mississippi River and will have a visit from the Bakken Museum.  We intend to create a brilliant year together in 4th grade. What are you looking forward to this year? 

    Please save Thursday, August 29 from 5:00-6:30 for the Open House at school. You will meet your teachers, see your classroom and can drop off your school supplies. Also, mark your calendars for Thursday, September 19, from 5:30-7:00 for curriculum night at SAP.

    Here’s to a RAINBOW of Possibilities this year!
