Why a Catholic Education Matters
Catholic education provides children with a safe and nourishing place to learn and grow. It prepares students academically and socially for a challenging world. Students in Catholic schools are viewed as children of God, and therefore loved.
I choose to work at St. Joseph Regional School to share my knowledge, faith and love of Christ with children. The parents and staff at St. Joseph Regional School make teaching a joy!

Fourth Grade News
Welcome back! It’s going to be an amazing year in 4th grade!!
To start the year out on the right track we will jump right into
reading. Fourth graders will keep up to date on current events
using their Scholastic News Magazine. We will be reading
folktales and fairy tales then move onto narrative nonfiction and
expository text. In reading groups the students will dive into some great chapter books.
Science is one of 4th grader’s favorite subjects. This quarter we
start with examining and classifying plants to investigate what
structures plants have to help them survive. From there we begin
the unit “Riding the Waves of Information”.
We will start our year with learning about the geography of New
York State. They will discover the types of land and water found
in New York and the different ways New Yorkers throughout
history have used the land and waterways.
In math will study place value, rounding, addition and subtraction of large numbers. Fourth graders should be studying the math facts -addition and subtraction from 0-20 and multiplication facts from 0-12.
STREAM returns to St. Joseph Regional School and the 4 th graders will start the year with designing like an engineer as we make marble labyrinths (mazes). We will be cooking our own salt dough to create 3-D models of New York State. Later in the month we will explore the properties of waves.
In Religion we learn that God reveals himself in many different
ways; scripture, creation, in prayer, and most perfectly through
His son, Jesus. We will also study the teachings of the Beatitudes the Ten Commandments, and how to be a true disciple of Christ. As always we give thanks for His greatest gift to us, Jesus.
God bless you and thank you for sending your child to St. Joseph Regional School. It is my pleasure to be your child’s teacher this year.
