The fourth graders had a wonderful first week back. They are ready for fourth grade. I am so excited to have this class this year. I was so impressed by their Summer Stream projects.
Here are a few reminders for the week:

Welcome to 4th Grade!
My name is Mrs. Nadine Mayer. I previously taught at another Catholic school for three years before coming to Immaculate Conception School. This will be my 18th year teaching fourth grade at ICS. I grew up and lived in East Aurora before getting married. I love being able to come back to my hometown every day. I live in Derby with my husband and two children. I love spending time with children. Damien is nine years old and is in fourth grade this year. Shayla is six years old and is in first grade.
I love working at ICS because of the family like environment. The families and students are wonderful. The faculty is very supportive and professional. I can't help but to have a smile on my face when I come to school each day. I enjoy teaching very much. I love watching the children blossom into thoughtful, intelligent Christian people.
I am very excited about the new Common Core Curriculum. We will be studying about the Native Americans in English Language Arts and Social Studies this year. The students will build longhouses and create wampum belts in class. We will learn all about New York State in Social Studies. In Math, we focus on a variety of topics including place value, multiplication, division, fractions, and geometry. The fourth graders get a take-home kit to perform hands-on experiments in Science. In Religion, we learn all about the Ten Commandments and Beatitudes. The children work together to become loving and thoughtful Christians. I am looking forward to working with the children this year.
Happy School Year!
Mrs. Nadine Mayer
