We Made it!

The first week of school went by in a flash, and we are half way through the second week. In addition to learning new routines and procedures for 4th grade, students are also getting used to having two main teachers. As you know by now, Ms. Avera is teaching literacy, social studies, and art while Mr. Pahl teaches science, math, and technology. A group of students starts the day with one teacher; then at lunch they switch classrooms. So far everyone seems to be doing really well. Please let us know if this is not the case.

During the first week of school, we spent time getting to know each other, discussing classroom/school rules, and getting a "feel" for what teachers and students expect of each other. Here is the video Mr. Pahl made to introduce himself to students.

All 4th grade students will make a similar video as one of their earliest technology projects.

Hopefully, everyone feels like they are getting off to a good start and are feeling supported by Mr. Pahl and Ms. Avera in their transition to 4th grade. Please do not hesitate to contact either of us if you have any questions or concerns. Ms. Avera can be reached at or 676-6446 x5610 and Mr. Pahl is at or 676-6446 x5612.

  1. Dear 4th Graders,
    The best part of going back to school is that I can see my friends, again. Something I’m excited to learn in 4th grade is art, music, and technology.
