FLIP FLOP INTO FOURTH GRADE!

 

ALOHA and welcome to Rm. 21 where learning is FUN!!! I am so excited for this year!  In my class, students will learn the meaning of "ohana", which in Polynesian culture means family. It is my goal to ensure that each child feels like they play a valuable role in our classroom community in an environment where they will be supported in every way, by their teacher, and classmates in our new fourth grade family. I am looking forward to an incredible year together! Join us on a learning adventure and have fun exploring all that there is to know about our classroom on this site!

 

Mahalo!

Mrs. Montejano

We are excited to announce that our fourth graders will now have access to a our very own Chromebook carts in each classroom! Technology will be integrated into our curriculum daily, so it's important that our scholars are competent with keyboarding skills. Please make it a priority to have your child practice for at least 10 minutes a day on Typing Club. If you do not have Google Chrome on your computer or your child's device, please make sure you download that browser as we will be be using different applications within Google classroom, especially Google Docs, on a regular basis. Many classroom assignments, projects, and homework assignments will be assigned on Google Classroom. We will also be reviewing DIGITAL CITIZENSHIP and expect that all students are using technology RESPONSIBLY.
