  1. 1. Grissom Elementary Mrs. Cross’s 4 th Grade 2010-2011
  2. 2. Dear Parents, My name is Julie Cross, a fourth grade teacher at Grissom Elementary and I am really glad to welcome you and your child to my classroom this year. I graduated from the Anderson University as a major in Elementary Education and a endorsement in Kindergarten. I am currently seeking my masters from IUPUI. I have been teaching in the Elementary grade for seven years. I am interested in reading and have my own blog which I see as a window to express my opinions. Apart from that, I am always on a quest to meet new people and learn about their language and culture. I am looking forward to meet as well as know each and every student of my class and their parents too. This year will be a challenging one for your children as compared to last year, however, I will try to make the classes more interesting as well as easier, so that each child understands as well as enjoys them. Moreover, I do not just want to stick to academics. Rather I am planning activities to develop the student's creative skills and interests. I hope to make this academic year, an educational as well as a fun-filled year for the students. If you would like to meet me to discuss your kid's performance or any other problems that he/she is facing in class, you can feel free to meet me during lunch break hours, between 11:35 to 12:05. You may also email me at to discuss any concern you have about your child. Sincerely yours, Mrs. Cross
