Mrs. Macmillan (Fourth Grade)

Welcome to 4th Grade 2019-2020

Hello from Mrs. Macmillan,

I hope your summer has been filled with fun and relaxation. In June, my husband and I went to Las Vegas to celebrate my birthday. Later in June we joined friends at their Michigan lake house where we enjoyed some leisurely pontoon rides and cruised on a wave runner.  In July we spent 10 days in Myrtle Beach, SC, to celebrate our 4th anniversary. We soaked up the sun during the day and listened to live music on the boardwalk at night. Throughout the summer, we enjoyed cheering on our granddaughters at their swim meets. My daughter and I managed to do some lunch and antique shopping, which we both love. The extra free time in the summer allows me to catch up on reading for enjoyment. I think my favorite book was, Hotel at the Corner of Bitter and Sweet.  I look forward to hearing about all of your summer adventures.

In June, summer seems as though it will last so long, but very quickly the next school year is upon us. I hope you are as excited for school to start as I am! My second favorite movie, You’ve Got Mail, has a great line where the main character says he loves New York in the fall. It makes him want to send a bouquet of newly sharpened pencils. A new school year is a fresh start, a new chance, a great beginning, and a time to set goals and try new things. We will grow and learn together in 4th grade.

This year we will be using several exciting tools to communicate and do our work. Seesaw is a tool that we will use to share work with families, peers, and teachers. I will also use Seesaw to communicate directly with parents. Google Classroom will be used to provide resources for students as well as serve as a platform for us to access and organize our work. 

See you soon!
