I am truly blessed to be part of the Aquinas family this year.  I am excited to grow in my faith and help all of my students reach their goals. I know every student is capable of learning and I am looking forward to providing the necessary tools and experiences to set the students up for a very successful year.


Fourth Grade is Fabulous!

First semester was a success and second semester is going to be even better!

We will continue to focus on multiplication, division, fractions, and decimals in Math.  In Social Studies we will explore more of Virginia and in Science we will study about oceans and electricity.

Reading is always so much fun as we will continue working in groups as we read novels, explore writing, and share ideas.

We will continue to grow spiritually as we study The Ten Commandments, the Sacraments, and learn about Jesus through Scriptures and weekly mass.
