Weekly Update:

Posted on: April 27, 2015

Dear Parents,

I am super proud of all of the students for their hard work on the Milestone Assessments!!! All of the students took their time, used their test taking strategies, and rocked the test! I am even MORE proud of each child for all of the many things that the Milestone could not assess. These children are incredibly respectful to me each day. It has been an honor to work with you and your child this year. They are very compassionate to each other and have huge hearts! We recently had a student to move away and there were many tears shed over his withdrawal. While I will be super sad to send them up to fifth grade, I can’t wait to see all of their many achievements and successes in the future!!!

We have lots of fun and engaging plans this week. You may have heard about the troll infestation at Russell!!! The students will be participating in a STEM activity to capture the friendly, but sneaky, trolls. The students are also involved in planning an end of the year party. They will use all of the math standards that were taught from this year. We will start out by designing the invitation and layout of the party. Thank you for all of your help and support this year.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns as we head into the last nine weeks. Each of you have been a HUGE part of making this year such a success!!! It is my pleasure to serve your child, if you have any questions, please contact me at
