Dear Parents,

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome your child to my fourth grade class this year!  This letter contains the homework schedule for my students.


Your child has a School/Home Binder which will contain all written correspondence from school.  Homework assignments, spelling/vocabulary lists, and updates about school events will be found in this binder.  Any papers in the left hand pocket of the binder should remain at home while any papers in the right hand pocket of the binder should be returned to school.


Each Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday your child will have a Reading or English worksheet to complete and return to school the next school day.  Any assignments sent home are review, and your child should be able to complete them with little or no help.  These pages should take no longer than 30 minutes to complete.  Accelerated Reading books should be read nightly.


Your child will have spelling tests on Wednesday and Friday of each week.  If your child makes 100 on Wednesday’s test, he or she does not have to take the test on Friday.

Your child will take a reading test at the conclusion of each unit of study.  This test will cover skills taught in class during the unit as well as reading comprehension, phonics, and language arts skills.


Should you need to contact me during the year, my e-mail address is This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .  You can also call me at school 663-3700 during my planning time 10:15-11:15AM Monday through Friday.  You may also want to check out the county’s web site and click on the Fairview link for school events.


Looking forward to a great year!

Mrs. Renee’ Byrd
