    WELCOME TO 4TH GRADE!
     
         I am looking forward to working with you and your child during the 2019-2020 school year.  I know this will be an exciting and successful school year.  I want to take this time to stress the importance for regular attendance, acceptable behavior, completion of homework assignments, and good study habits.
     
         Working together, we can assist your child in scoring a level 3, 4, or 5 on the North Carolina End of Grade Test.  As educators we are instructed to teach what the NC Standard Course of Study requires us to teach.  All this information can be found on the NC Department of Public Instruction website. 
     
         All students need to read for at least 45 minutes every night.  In math, they will have about 10 problems each night.  In science, read over science notes every night & study!!!  Please check to make sure your child has completed all of their homework every night.  Homework will be assigned Monday-Thursday and  is assigned to reinforce new skills students are learning in class.
     
         Our grading criteria is  as follows:  homework/classwork 20%, tests 40%, quiz 20%, and projects/notebooks 20%.
     
         I am looking forward to a great school year.  I am available for scheduled conferences Monday through Friday from 9:00-10:00 or after school 3:00-3:30.  Please call 521-4766 to schedule an appointment or email me at april.strickland@robeson.k12.nc.us.
     
    Alone we can do so little;
    together, we can do so much!!!
     
    Thank you,
