Dear 4th grade families,
Welcome to a new school year! My name is Stefaine Back and I am thrilled to be your child’s teacher. This is my 14th year as a teacher and I have taught several different grades but 4th grade is absolutely my favorite.
FLEXIBLE SEATING CLASSROOM
As you may have heard by now, our classroom is a bit different this year. We are using flexible seating arrangements and the students sit at various places throughout the day. This allows the to be more active and provides multiple ways to work and learn. I am super excited and the results have been awesome so far. My goal is for students to discover the best way for them to work and learn.
RULES AND PROCEDURES
Classroom procedures and rules focus on a learning community with a strong sense of responsibility, respect and positive attitudes and behaviors. I will be contacting you periodically throughout the year for both positive achievements and areas that might need improvement.
I will be using the REMIND app on my phone to notify families of homework, tests and other information. This is a safe messaging system that allows phone numbers and information to remain private while staying up-to-date. You can receive the messages via text, email or push notifications. This system also has a chat feature that is private and will only be seen by me if you choose to message me.
