Mrs. Pace - 4th Grade

Welcome to Mrs. Pace's class page. I consider myself the luckiest teacher in the world because I get to share the adventures of fourth grade with my new, unique, amazing, and passionate students! Fourth grade is special to me for a few reasons: 

      1. Fourth graders rock! (But you already knew that.)


      2. Fourth grade was my favorite grade. I remember my teacher, Mrs. Leaf, reading The Adventures of Robin Hood and Harry  Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, visiting the Mining Museum, and winning "tug-of-war" on field day.


      3. In fourth grade, we get to learn about our amazing state's geography, natural resources, and unique history. We will go on adventures daily~ we will also visit our state's capital (Denver), the Mining Museum, and our state Justice Center. Last year's fourth graders even got to sit in the supreme court justice's chairs (it's a big deal!). 


      4. In my personal experience, fourth grade students are some of the most funny, respectful, curious, hard-working, and overall fantastic kids. I am looking forward to getting to know each of you as we journey through this year.

Report Cards

A report card is not a judgment of your child's worth as an individual. It does not measure the delight he or she gives, the humor in those young eyes, or the hope for tomorrow. It measures only one aspect of a young life with so much untried potential. After only a few years of life we cannot judge their lives to be successes nor failures at anything. Please look at your child's report card with love and acceptance of how things are right now. Give it only the importance of the moment - notice and point out the good and positive, emphasize what your child is doing right and build on that to improve what needs improving. Young developing egos are fragile - handle with care and nourish all that your child is and can be.
