Dear Fourth Graders and Families,
Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year! My name is Mrs. Wilson and I would like to introduce myself as your new teacher. While I am new to Scarsdale and Fox Meadow, I have been a teacher for several years. Most recently, I taught at an International Baccalaureate school in the state of Washington. I’m looking forward to meeting you and the other members of our class. I have spent a great amount of time this summer planning projects and activities for us to complete throughout the upcoming school year. I can’t wait to share my ideas with you and look forward to hearing some of your ideas as well.
While we will be meeting individually and in small groups beforehand, both remotely and in person, I wanted to share the items you should bring to school in your backpacks on Thursday, September 17th, as that will be our first regularly scheduled day, when we will be together with our entire morning and afternoon cohorts respectively.
Please bring the following items:
- Your chromebook (fully charged)
- 1 composition notebook
- 1 folder
- Your novel of choice
- A few sharpened pencils and a pen (in a pencil case if you have one)
- 3-5 personal artifacts in a ziploc bag (the goal is select different types of items), and these can include, but are not limited to:
A favorite picture
An award or ribbon you may have won
A small souvenir or memento from a trip, such as a magnet, etc...
A small favorite toy or stuffed animal
Any keepsake that is special or significant to you
A postcard of a favorite destination, or one that was sent to you
A note or birthday card that was given to you
A small craft project you made
Enjoy the last few days of summer vacation. I look forward to meeting you all very soon!
