Grade Four

Fourth Grade

Fourth Grade is a pivotal year in which students continue to develop the responsibility they will need in the future. It is an exciting year filled with many new opportunities. Academically, we continue to foster reading, writing, math and content area skills, challenging the students to expand their abilities to their full potential. The curriculum is designed to foster student independence. In addition to the academic curriculum, students are able to participate in enrichment activities such as instrumental music, chorus, and after school activities.
