Dear Parents,

          I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself and tell you how excited I am to be your child’s teacher this year. The fourth grade is a very exciting year in your child’s education and I am looking forward to sharing this step of their journey with them. In order to make this transition as smooth as possible, I have outlined some important things you should know.

          Homework is given Monday through Thursday; I usually give homework in Math, Language Arts, and Spelling. All homework must be signed and unless stated is due the next day. Homework is 10% of your child’s grade and it is important that they complete all assignments.

          Tests are given at the end of each chapter and students will be given advanced notice before a test. The students will be given study guides in Social Studies and Science in order to help them study.On Fridays the students will have a quiz on their ELA and Math morning work and a Spelling test. Their grade will be broken up into 30% class work, 40% test grades, 10% homework, 10% quizzes and 10% projects.

          Please label all books, supplies and clothing with your child’s name. Also, at no time should your child be taking any type of electronics to school. These things can be misplaced and it is upsetting to the child.

          All students must be in the gym by 8:00 am for morning prayers. Arriving after the start of prayers is disruptive to the other students and will result in a late pass.

          If your child is sick please call the office int he morning and send in a note explaining their absence when they return to school. Please feel free to email me with any questions you may have at

          If at anytime during the year you need to speak to me, just send me a note and I can set up an appointment. I know with your help we can make this a great year for your child.


                                                          Sincerely yours,



                                                          Mrs. Donna Noguera
