Dear Families,

Welcome back to NDV and 4th grade!   As we begin this new year, I am looking forward to working with your child with great expectations!   Please read through the curriculum and other tabs on this site.  If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask!

There are many ways you can help your child to be successful in school.  Give lots of praise for work well done; Be sure to comment and ask about all papers and projects that come home, and most importantly, read with your child!  In doing this, you become an active participant in your child’s education. As Emilie Buchwald wisely said, “Children are made readers on the laps of their parents.”

Here’s to a GREAT year!!


Mrs. Frumerman
