Class 4B

Mrs. Maria Pastrick 4B 


October 17, 2021

We had another great week of learning and fun in 4B! We have a very enthusiastic group of awesome children that work hard and love learning, sharing, and participating each and every day. They are a true blessing to St Jane School and our classroom.

As a new teacher at St Jane School, I graciously ask for your patience as we continue to work diligently to complete the set up and access of related links, accounts, and classroom information.  As this information becomes available, I will communicate and share via website updates, remind app, and/or email.  If you have any questions or need to reach out to me, please do not hesitate to contact me.

SEAT SACKS- These sturdy items hang over the back of the chairs to hold soft covered books that do not fit in student desks.  These are $12.00 each. Please send money in an envelope labeled with student’s name and “SeatSack.”

STORAGE BIN–  Although we will be hanging up our backpacks and coats this year, in order to help some students stay organized, we are allowing students to bring in a storage bin about  18″ x 12″ x 12″ to hold personal items.  This bin will stay next to their desk in order to reduce movement throughout the classroom.
