For classroom books, please paperclip or rubberband a note to the front saying “for 4-O or 4-G Classroom.” There will be a box outside the main entrance to place the books in. If you have tokens, put them in a Ziplock baggie and write “for 4-O” on the front and place in the box. Thank you! 🙂

Mrs. Graham and I are providing Google Meet times during office hours Monday through Thursday so students and parents can talk to us directly if they have questions about assignments or need instruction.

  • Mrs. Ochs’s Google Meet M-TH 2:00-2:15 for any math, social studies, 4-0 writing questions or instruction needed.
  • Mrs. Graham’s Google Meet M-Th 2:15-2:30 for any reading, science, or 4-G writing questions or instruction needed.

Our daily office hours will be Monday through Thursday from 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. This hour is reserved exclusively for our students’ and parents’ questions or concerns.
