Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Lori Knowlton
Welcome to 4th Grade Grizzlies!
I am excited to take this journey with you as your child's fourth grade teacher. I believe in working as a team with parents to provide children with the best educational experience I can. I can be reached through the ClassDojo website or by email at email@example.com.
I will be teaching Math and Science, while Mrs. Glunk will be teaching Reading, Writing, and Texas History.
By working together as a team of parents and teachers, your child’s success is inevitable.
- To meet the individual needs of each student by providing tasks that are developmentally appropriate.
- To stimulate thought and creativity.
- To provide questions that will aid children in solving their own problems.
- To be a good role model.
- To guide, rather than dictate, giving our students room to grow and develop.
- To provide a safe, positive environment where our students will feel free to be themselves.
- To be a good listener.
- To be certain your child has a successful year.
- To provide opportunities for all students to participate in leadership roles.
- Check your child's folder and look at your child’s work. Ask about it. It is very important to them that you take an interest.
- Review your child’s assignment planner daily and check TXConnect regularly for missing assignments or failing grades.
- Please sign and return required forms in a timely manner (by due date).
- Please review and sign your child's Checkbook every Thursday evening. Credits and debits should be totalled and accurate.
- Make sure to sign up for Class Dojo. This will be my main source of communication between home and school.
- Help your child on homework assignments, if needed.
- Listen to your child read every night. Even though they have been reading for a while, it is still important they practice this skill. They are moving from learning to read to READING TO LEARN!
- Be encouraging and positive. Your child’s attitude towards school is affected by the attitude you project.
- Make sure your child gets enough rest. His/her performance is better when he/she is rested.
- Encourage your child to be a leader at school, home, and in the community.
- Please keep this handbook in a place that is easily accessible to refer to when needed.
Along with all expectations outlined in the SCUC Student Code of Conduct, students should also exhibit the following:
- BE A LEADER.
- Respect peers, adults, and the property of others with your actions and words.
- Be responsible and come to class prepared to learn.
- Keep hands, feet, and objects to yourself.
- Follow directions the FIRST time they are given.
- Remain seated, walk, and raise hands appropriately.
Fourth Grade policies and procedures can be found in your child's copy of The Official Fourth Grade Handbook, which will be sent home on the first day of school.
Once again, if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me through my Class Dojo page, via email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by phone. The school’s phone number is 210-619-4450. Fourth grade’s conference time is from 10:25 to 11:20.
This is going to be a great year for all of us. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your child’s education.
Our daily schedule is flexible and may change to accommodate special events or lessons throughout the day.
Afterschool tutoring is by invitation only for students needing to meet grade level expectations. We do allot extra time in our schedule to provide intervention and/or enrichment for those in need.
