Teacher's Message


Hello 4th Grade

Over the next few days we are making adjustments to PowerSchool and your accounts may be glitchy. We ask you to please be patient during this time. 



 March 30- April3. Look for instructions on the Stream in Google Classroom.

Your Assignments will be posted on google classroom at 9 am and need to be completed each day by 3pm. Please “turn in” in each assignment when asked to turn in. I will mark you present for each day by your returned assignments. I will be grading your assignments and the grades will be put on powerschool. I will make helpful comments on your google classroom assignments and I love the replies back to me.

Some of the assignments are posted later because I will teach a lesson before you do the assignments.

Check math and Spanish websites/google classroom for assignments. 

Miss you all. Always check for announcements on Class dojo and google classroom and the fourth grade page.

You are doing great! Keep up the great work! Please come to the Meet!

5th Grade plan  for LA  MEET on Tuesday and Thursday at 1:30. I will post on The Stream and email you. You need to show up for the Meets.

Complete assignments in Google Classroom. 

Your child’s learning will continue and his/her success is very important to me. I will be available from 9am-3pm. Stay well and together we will get through this. You have any concerns or questions  contact me. 

Please purchase these two books for your child(4th Grade) to work with as soon as possible: I survived the American Revolution by Lauren Tarshis  and the Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane by Kate DiCamillo. They can be purchased through Amazon or Scholastic. Thank you 



Welcome to 4th Grade!  I am so happy to be your 4th Grade teacher.

My goal, as your teacher, is to work with you to maintain your progress and potential in school.  I am committed to your development and growth. Each day we will learn something new together. Let’s have a wonderful year filled with awesome learning experiences and lots of fun activities.  I am looking forward to working and learning with you.

For your child’s safety, please inform me by writing a note or by e-mail when someone other than you will be picking up your child.

If possible do this by 9 a.m., it is very difficult at times to check emails all day long.

Here is another important safety rule about the school parking lot:  Please  pick up your child in the parking lot by the fence. If you take your child off the dismissal line, please inform me. It is for your child’s safety that I ask you to follow these simple rules.

Thank you to all the parents/guardians who go to the appropriate place at dismissal time. Supportive parents are lifesavers!

Thank you for your time, support, and cooperation.

Best Regards,

Mrs. Essman
