Hello Families! As your child's teacher, I am so excited to create a fun and encouraging environment this school year for your child to grow in their learning.
 
I have recently graduated from Stephen F. Austin State University with a degree in Interdisciplinary Studies. I have always wanted to be a teacher, but through my education, my passion for elementary education flourished. A little more about me, I am the oldest of three with both a younger brother and sister. In my free time, I love to spoil my dog, watch movies with my family, and play strategy games. 
 
Now that you know more about me, I can't wait to start building relationships with you and your child and learning more about you all. I look forward to seeing the growth of your child in my classroom through the course of the school year. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out. Communication is part of the key to success, and I am always available! 
 
We will all have a great year learning together here on the Prairie.
Decker Strong, We can, We Will!
 
Ms. Rumsey

4th grade has been chosen by the state to take the STARR field test tomorrow. We will act as if it is a real STARR testing date, so there will be no visitors allowed on campus. This means no lunch visitors tomorrow as well. Class Valentine's Day parties are Thursday. Please make sure your child brings in a card addressed to his/her 19 classmates. Student holiday this Friday and next Monday!

Feb 4th is the 100th day of school! Kids can dress like they are 100 years old and bring a 100 piece snack. A class list will be coming home in this week's Wed folder to help with putting names on Valentine's cards. We will be making Valentine bags in class to hold all of their cards. 

Book Bags, Word Rings, YAY! YAY! YAY!

You may have noticed that your child has a new book bag! 
 
These book bags are so joyous, as it means an easy way for your child to bring reading material to and from school. New books are added to their bag each week. Reading at home is so much fun, and I am sure they would love to show you all they have been learning in class. 
 
Additionally, you may have noticed that their word ring has been combined in our book bags! Now, each nine weeks sight words are together! I hope this will make practicing easier. Every Friday, I will be using their word rings to see how much they have grown and which we may still need a bit more practice with. We don't have to be perfect, to be AMAZING! 
 
As much as we love reading and practicing sight words at home, we also love reading and practicing at school! So please remember, that after enjoying family learning time to send their book bag with their word rings inside back to school each day!
