Brenda Grage - Fourth Grade  (Send e-mail)

Greetings from fourth grade!

I look forward to working with you this year to help your child be successful in 4th grade. Please check back frequently for curriculum and schedule updates.

Your partner in education,
Mrs. Grage

Week of September 18th...

Dear Parents/Guardians,
This week students in my class will participate in benchmark screenings provided by FastBridge Learning. FastBridge is District 157-Cís new screening instrument that will take the place of AIMSweb. Similarly to AIMSweb, this assessment will be provided in the fall, winter and spring to help teachers determine which students are likely to meet the end of the year learning goals and which students may require intervention. This computer based assessment measures performance in reading and math. The district will be providing training to all teachers on score interpretation. More information will be forthcoming to parents. I look forward to working with your child this school year.

Sincerely,
Mrs. Grage
