August / September

 Welcome to Grade 4!  I am happy to have you on my team!  We are at the starting line of a great year, and I plan to help make this year your child's best school year yet!  Together, we can make this happen.

     This is my eighth year at Mowrey Elementary School.  I have taught 4 years of 5th grade here, as well as 2 years of 3rd grade, and 1 year of fourth grade.  I also taught 5th Grade in Washington County for six years and spent several years at home with my four children.  I received my Bachelor's and Master's Degree in Elementary Education from Frostburg State University in Maryland.

     Your child will spend each day in the classroom working on meaningful activities activities, learning and practicing skills in math.  Students have Mrs. Bumbaugh for Social Studies, Science, and Writing.  They will have Mrs. Poole for ELA.  
     It is my goal to use this website, email, and notes to help the students and parents stay aware of what is going on.

     Let's have a successful, great, and fun 4th Grade year!
