Welcome Back!

Welcome to Miss Gaughan’s team!





I look forward to meeting all students and parents this Thursday, August 10, 2018 during Open House.

Let the Countdown Begin!

26 days…Yes, that’s right only 26 days of school left.   We have a lot of school wide activities planned between now and May 24th.  In addition to all of our fun activities, we also have the SOLs that are quickly approaching.  Students are preparing in math and Virginia Studies where they are answering daily review questions.

Hard at Work

It is hard to believe that we are in the 4th quarter already!  The students are still working hard in both Math and Virginia Studies.  Please be sure to continue to complete your homework, as well as, putting in 100% effort during class as we begin to prepare for the SOL tests that will begin in May.  Keep up the fantastic fourth grade work!


We’ve reached the end of the 3rd nine weeks.  With that being said, we have benchmarks this coming week.

Just Keep Swimming, Just Keep Swimming

Just keep multiplying!

The students are doing a fabulous job with their multiplication facts!  There are many students who have mastered their 0-12 facts and are anxiously awaiting a “special surprise”.

Ways to practice facts at home:

  1. Reflex Math
  2. Flash Cards
  3. Multiplication War

Have fun with it and remember, just keep swimming…

Welcome 2017

It’s Study Time!

As the 2nd nine weeks is coming to an end and the holiday season is quickly approaching, the students still have a lot of work to do.  We believe in our students and know that they will do well on their upcoming winter benchmarks.  The fourth grade students will have the following schedule:

  1. Monday, December 12:  Virginia Studies
  2. Wednesday, December 14: Reading
  3. Friday, December 16: Math

There will be Virginia Studies and Math study guides coming home before the benchmark to help you and your child study.

Do your best 4th grade!

It’s Time to Shop!

It’s that time again for our PTA sponsored Holiday Shop!  The holiday shop will be open this week.  Our class will have a designated shopping time each day.  We wish to thank our PTA for sponsoring this event. 

Only children bringing money will be permitted to visit the shop.
