This year we will be exploring Science and Social Studies topics while connecting it to our language arts skills and mathematics skills.

We will explore new information through informational texts, hands-on activities, experiments, internet resources and class discussions.


Discipline: Students are to adhere to the schools discipline policy stated in the student handbook.

  1. Be in seats, with appropriate materials, and prepared to work when the class begins.
  1. Be independent and honorable in doing work.
  2. Show respect and cooperation for all fellow peers, and all authority figures, including aides.
  3. Use courteous language at all times.
  4. Ask to be excused from class only when absolutely necessary.
  5. Respect the personal space of others.
  6. Respect other’s right to work and avoid unnecessary noises or distractions.
  7. Be sure to attend all classes. Cutting class is a serious offense and truancy is a violation of civil law (NJSAI8A:38-25).


Students will follow the RED/YELLOW/GREEN behavior plan.  Every student begins each day with a GREEN card.  However, students that do not adhere to any of the standard classroom rules, which are posted throughout the classroom, will receive the following consequences. Adjustments will be made if a situation arises that is severe.


  1. First offense- results in a Yellow card allowing the student to be forwarned that any further discipline action will result in a red card.
  2. Second offense- results in a Red card, results in a recess detention. 
  3. Two red cards in a week will require the student to call their parent informing them of the situation. 
  4. Additional Offences result in an after school detention.


Homework Assignments: Students will be given time in class to make sure their homework is written down. Unless otherwise noted, all assignments are due the next school day.



Absent Work: Students are expected to make make up work when they are absent from school. It is also the students responsibility to make up missed work due to band or chorus.


Birthdays:  We love to celebrate birthdays in fourth grade!  Please contact the school nurse with the ingredient list of any birthday treats. School policy states that sugar may not be the first ingredient.  Birthdays will be celebrated in the cafeteria during lunch time. 



Successful students engage in all aspects of their learning. By using both formative and summative assessment, all learners will have the opportunity to their greatest marked achievement.

Formative assessment is defined as any work that is a practice of the skills being taught in class. Examples of formative assessment include:

essay/journal writing, projects,

participation, self-assessment,

observations, and other creative



Summative assessments are given

periodically to determine, at a

particular point in time,what

students know and do not know.

Examples of summative assessment

include end of-chapter tests, unit

tests, and quizzes


Assessment Percentages:

  • Formative 35%
  • Summative 50%
  • Perserveance/Grit 15% 
  • You are encouraged to follow your student’s

    success through the parent portal

    via the Hope Township School website.
