    Welcome to Fourth Grade!

    Hello and welcome fourth grade families. I am excited to spend this year with your students! My name is Wendy Calvert. I am a certified K-8 teacher in Idaho and Arizona. I am an Idaho native and have worked for the Lakeland School District the past seven years. I have a professional background in behavior modification programs, students with disabilities, coaching, and instruction. I was a county 4H instructional leader for many years as well.

    I hope to meet you at our Open house Sept. 15th from 5:30 - 6:30 pm. Please feel free to contact me at: wcalvert4th@gmail.com or via phone/text: 208-818-5457. My phone is open for communication from 8 am to 7pm every school day. Messages received outside of these times will be answered the next school day.

    Classroom Information

    Students will be provided enough time in class to complete their homework most of the time. However, the program is rigorous and therefore some homework should be expected 2-3 nights a week.

    Spelling words will be posted Sunday in the weekly newsletter. Students will receive the words Monday in class. I encourage everyone to practice the words at home for the weekly spelling test on Fridays. Practice time in class is limited.

    Homework Policy: Homework is due the next school day. Missing assignments will be counted as a zero in the gradebook until the work is complete. All weekly assignments will be sent home in the Fri

    We had a great first week and an awesome week of ITBS testing. The students are learning my teaching style and I am learning to love each of them. After correcting and recording the papers I found there is still some work out. Please check your student's Jupiter Grades to see what is missing. From here on out I have a “past due” board in the classroom that can be checked on as far as missing work. 

    This week will be working hard on multiplication skills and more parts of speech. Also keep working on states and capitals. 

    A book report form will go home on Monday 7/6.

    The book report is due on 8/7. This report is to be on a biography or autobiography book. You can find some at the library. Try to find one at least 100 pages. 

    Questions please ask.
