    Dear Families,

    Welcome to fourth grade!  I hope that you all had an enjoyable summer.  September brings a new beginning with energy, excitement, and enthusiasm.

    Students will be using Chromebooks and will have access to a variety of technology programs this year. An overview of the fourth-grade curriculum with more details will be discussed at Open House.  More information on that will be coming soon.  Alden School and the District are continuing to provide guidance with regard to the back to school plan and protocol. 

    Alden School website has a suggested supplies’ list.  In addition, students should have 5 two-pocket file folders for subjects.  Students do not need a large binder. Communication is important, and please feel free to e-mail me at jdesmond@duxbury.k12.ma.us.  If any of your emails should be added, omitted or changed, please let me know.

    I will do all I can this year to help each child in my classroom realize and reach their potential.  By working together, we can achieve that goal.  Thank you for your support.
