1. Welcome to Mrs. Nawrot's
A Little About Mrs. Nawrot-
Hi, my name is Mrs. Nawrot and I am starting my ninth year teaching 4th
grade here at CCA! I am a Ferris graduate, and my areas of study are
Math, Science, and Language Arts. I am married to Mr. Nawrot, and my
family is made up of Katelynne, 5, Kyleigh, 3, Thaddeus, soon to be 1,
and a very active chocolate lab named Moose. I like reading, sewing,
gardening, being outside, and teaching! I enjoy watching sporting events,
and I even spent a few years coaching basketball for CCA. My favorite
subject is Math and I love to read a good book! And ultimately, I truly
enjoy getting to know each family that is a part of my classroom!
I hope that you are as excited about this year as I am! We will begin
working on our Language Arts, Math, and Social Studies curriculum right
away! Throughout the year we will switch in the afternoon between Social
Studies instruction taught by me and Science instruction taught by Mrs.
Benson. This year I will be trying a new classroom money system, and I
can’t wait for us to try it together! We will also be using a new Writing
curriculum this year as well!
I would appreciate if each student would fill out the “Something About
Me” sheet and return it by Wednesday, Sept. 4. Please also read through
the “Classroom Policies and Expectations,” and return the “Student-
Parent-Teacher Contract” as well!
Please feel free to contact me at any time. You may reach me by email at
firstname.lastname@example.org or if you prefer to contact me by phone I can be
reached at (231) 796-6589 ext. 330. The best time to reach me by phone
is from 3:30-4:15, but you may leave a message and I will get back with
you as soon as possible. If you want to find out things that are going on in
our classroom, feel free to access our class blog at
I am looking forward to all that we are going to learn this year!
2. Mrs. Nawrot's 4th Grade Classroom Policies and Expectations:
Please read the following together and return the parent-student contract.
Daily Folders- an essential tool for organization!
Students are provided a folder that will be used to transport homework,
class announcements, and information on community events. Folders will
be kept on the desktops during the day for students to slide homework
into, sent home each evening with graded work/ incomplete assignments
for parents to check, and must be returned to school the next morning so
we can start our new day.
Planners- an essential tool for accountability!
Planners are to be filled out each day with incomplete assignments, the
page numbers students read each night (15 minutes is required), and
reminders of important events. Students will also record their behavior
color for the day. I will communicate personal notes to parents in the
planner as needed. I ask parents to make it a habit to initial the planner
each evening. Students will receive classroom money for an initialed
planner. Parents may also want to send me notes in the planner.
Classroom Behavior- an essential part of a great classroom!
Students in our classroom are expected to FOLLOW DIRECTIONS,
RESPECT OTHERS, BE ON TASK, COMPLETE ALL
ASSIGNMENTS/ACTIVITIES, & PARTICIPATE. All students begin their
day on the color GREEN, and may move a color down for misbehavior, or
up for exceptional behavior. The colors are BLUE, GREEN, YELLOW,
ORANGE, & RED. Students exhibiting exceptional behavior may move a
color up to BLUE, which results in special recognition. Students who
misbehave will move their clip and pay a fine in our classroom money
system, and there may also be more actions taken for a serious offense.
Classroom news and upcoming events will be highlighted each Monday in
The Nawrot News, available in the Daily Folder. Please review the
newsletter as I use it to communicate important information. I also try to
maintain and update our class blog with The Nawrot News at
If you would like to send a birthday treat to celebrate your child's special
day please let me know ahead of time. This will allow me to set aside time
to celebrate as a class and I will alert you to any allergies we may have.
Our class welcomes volunteers to read with students or complete time
saving tasks. Let me know and when you complete volunteer paperwork
for the office we will put you to work!
