In fourth grade, we focus on foundational skills through a growth mind-set perspective. Students learn to be collaborative, use clear communication, and support one another to learn and be their best self in a safe and caring learning environment. Students are encouraged to take risks, be independent, and develop a lifelong love for learning. We embrace learning through hands on activities and experiences such as field trips, gardening, and days spent in our forest classroom. Students in Ms. Rachael’s fourth grade are valued and supported.
