Welcome to Fourth Grade





Dear Families of Hebrew Academy Fourth Grade Students,

Welcome to the Fourth Grade! We are excited about the upcoming school year.

Fourth grade is an exciting year as students transition from primary grades to “upper grades.”  Students enhance their critical thinking skills and make connections in what they read and learn.  In addition, fourth graders are encouraged to be more independent in their learning, depending less on the teacher‘s guidance.  Students will continue to use a daily planner (Yoman) to record daily reminders and homework assignments to help empower and take responsibility.   The planner is great communication tool for teachers and parents, too.

We are deeply committed to whole child education which challenges and supports every student to reach his/her full potential.  As partners in your child’s learning, we want to ensure that you are aware of our academic goals and what you can anticipate your child learning this year. We hope that you will work with us to support these goals to ensure a strong foundation for future success in learning!
