MRS. RAUDE'S 4TH GRADE GIFTED ROCK STARS!
Welcome to our 4th grade school year! You can't imagine how excited I am about teaching your children again! We are going to have a great time in our class, and we are going to learn so much together. When I say together, I mean all of us...your child, you, and me. Remember we are a family. We will be working together as a team with a common goal. That goal is to educate and nurture your son or daughter. Please be involved in your child's studies this year. 4th grade will be a challenging year requiring much more independence and rigor from your child. The rewards for active participation in your child's education are hard to see on a day to day basis, but they will manifest themselves down the road, I assure you. I am looking forward to a stimulating year filled with many successes and rewarding learning experiences! In order to facilitate this goal, it is essential for all of us to work together to ensure that your child reaches his/her full potential and continues to stay challenged throughout this school year.
Please do not hesitate to contact me at any time! My door is always open. :) .
Parents, I hope to meet with you soon to review your child's educational goals for the upcoming school year. I am here for you and your child should you have any questions or concerns. Please contact me at school during school hours or via email. It is my hope that your child has an extremely positive year filled, not only with tremendous academic growth, but a lot of joy and laughter as well! I will do everything I can to make this possible!
Thank you so much for your help and support!
I dreamed I saw a studio
And watched two sculptors there.
The clay they used was a child’s mind
And they fashioned it with care.
One was a teacher-the tools he used
Were books, music, and art.
The other, a parent, worked with a guiding hand,
And a gentle, loving heart.
Day after day, the teacher toiled with a touch,
That was careful and sure,
While the parent labored by his side
And polished and smoothed it o’er.
And when at last, their task was done,
They were proud of what they had wrought.
For the things they had molded into the child.
Could neither be sold nor bought.
And each agreed they would have failed
If either had worked alone.
For behind the parents stood the school
And behind the teacher, the home.
