Rushmore, Alea

 Dear New Fourth Grader,

My name is Ms. Rushmore and I an super excited to be your Math and Science teacher this year!  Your Literacy teacher Mrs. Paust and I have teamed up to begin a very important and exciting year for you.  Our learning community values responsibility, respect, independent thinking, and hard work.  We will explore many fascinating topics and our days will be filled with inquiry and problem- solving.  Make sure to participate in class because your questions and ideas will help drive our discussions.  I am counting on you to take responsibility for your learning and behavior.

  You may feel anxious, excited, or nervous about virtual learning, but these feelings are all normal!  Stay positive and remember that I am here to support you, motivate you, and help you achieve more than ever before. 

Best Regards,
Alea Rushmore
