    Dear Fourth Graders,

    Welcome to fourth grade! My name is Mrs. Volpi and I am so excited to be your teacher this school year! Fourth grade is going to be a very special time for you. I have many great ideas and projects that I can’t wait to share and explore with you!

    I hope you are having a fun and relaxing summer! I have been having fun taking family trips with my husband and my three sons, Rayce, Max and Luke. We visited some beaches in New Jersey, landmarks in NYC and a few trips to Yankee Stadium.  We also took a very special family trip to Italy and France to visit our relatives. I can’t wait to hear all about the fun things you did this summer!

    Right now I am most excited that in a few weeks I will be getting to learn all about YOU! I am asking that you bring in a few things during our first week of school. First, please bring in some of your favorite books. They can be picture or chapter books, books that you have loved for a long time and/or books you have recently read and really enjoyed. Second, please bring in a 5”x 7” (or slightly smaller) photograph of yourself that we can use for a class project. 

    Below are a few important things. You will find 2 links that include a parent survey for your parents to fill out and a student survey for you to fill out. It can be filled out electronically and submitted directly to me.  Additionally, there is a list of school supplies you will need if you haven’t ordered a PTA supply box.

     Just a reminder that our first day of school is Tuesday, September 3rd and the first bell rings at 8:35am.

    Enjoy the rest of your summer!


    Mrs. Volpi
