We have devoted our year to helping your fourth grader improve and succeed. Your child is important to us. We understand that your child is the future of our city, our nation, and our world. We strive daily to give our best to your child.
Some days are good ones, full of energy and passion, but whether a day is a good one or not, we will try to make this year memorable and meaningful for every child. Please be patient with us as we make mistakes.
Mr. Culbertson, Mr. Hoggatt, and Mrs. Mouton
THINGS WITH WHICH WE COULD USE YOUR HELP· Your child needs multiplication flash cards and must work with them nightly. We desperately need to move to deeper concepts in the fourth grade, and basic facts must be mastered soon. Your effort will pay off tremendously.
· Your child must read for 30 uninterrupted minutes every night. Please designate a time for this, and remember to include weekends. Remember that this may include you reading to or with your child, your child reading to you, and/or your child reading on his or her own.
· Create a routine, and establish a time for getting things done. Establish a location for homework to be completed without distraction. Have some basic supplies available and in place for this purpose.
· Consider limiting the amount of time your child spends in front of the television or video games and personal electronic devices. While entertainment and rest breaks are important, we also suggest physical activity and exercise, as well as a regular supper time and nutritious breakfast.
· Check your child’s book bag. Find and sign any permission slips, student planners, binders, or notes from the teacher as soon as you see them. Repack them for return to school on the next day. At times, money is requested to cover certain expenses (field trips, special activities, etc.).
· Stay informed about school activities. Maintain contact with the teacher. Attend family events. Check theschool website, your teacher’s website (if applicable) and local media. Join Cecil Floyd’s Facebook page. Contact the teacher at school if you have questions or need clarification on an issue.
