At Home Learning - Souderton Area School District

Dear 4th Grade Familes,

Here we are on a new journey that we didn’t expect. However, we are never alone. God is with us always. Also, I am just a message away. Please let me know when you need anything and keep in touch just to let me know what you are doing. I miss you all, but we will make it through together. God tells us that in all things we should be grateful. This is a great example to practice that.

Also, below are the pages for your favorite Reading and Math teachers: Mrs. Viscardi and Mrs. Payne. They have some great activities for you all to do!!

I love you and miss you all!!   Love, Mrs. Cleary

Bless my relatives, my friends, my classmates, my teachers. Through the immaculate heart of Mary, your mother, and the mother of us all, help me to grow today in your love so that through the example of my life, others may come to know you and to love you.
