2013 Back to School Letter Minimize

Achieve strong academic skills, Build self-efficacy, and
Cultivate conscientious citizenship 

Dear 4th Grade Families,

It is a pleasure to welcome you and your child to the new school year. Back to school is one of my favorite times of year. Even though my initial reaction is shock when I see school supplies on the store shelves, the teacher in me can’t help but get excited. Freshly cleaned schools, carefully decorated classrooms, excited children, and an opportunity for a fresh start draw me in each year.

Every summer, I spend time reflecting on the prior year. What worked and what didn’t? I even envision my room design, come up with a behavior plan, and review the curriculum. Of course, I still take time to enjoy myself, but something about the break away from school ignites my desire to be there. I’m sure many teachers can relate to this, and I attribute these feelings to the innate nature of being an educator.

I am excited to begin building relationships with my students that are essential to motivating and engaging them to participate in the learning process. It is my desire to let my students know that I am here for them. I also want them to know that each one of them is special and unique and I am looking forward to each day I get to spend with them.

A fantastic year is ahead of us! Fourth grade is a year of growth and preparation for higher levels of thinking, learning, and performing. It is my intention to help your child prepare for these gigantic steps by assisting them in learning two key concepts to success: organization and responsibility.

I am so blessed to have your child in my class. If we haven’t met already, I truly am looking forward to meeting you at Back-to-School Night on Thursday, October 3, 2013.

Here’s to a year filled with fun, learning, and lots of growth!

Mrs. Linda Kajino, lkajino@etusd.org, 4th Grade Teacher, Room 25
