4th Grade Now

Miriam and her first-ever Golden Bear Award

The Golden Award is given to any 4th and 5th grade students at Brooks Elementary who performs academically well.  The minimum grade point average (GPA) required is 3.5.   Since Miriam is now in 4th grade she has the opportunity to get one. 

Miriam and her 4th Grade Teacher, Mr. Nordquist

Mr. Nordquist, aka Mr. N is Miriam's teacher.  He teaches a combined class of 4th and 5th graders.  I'd like to think that the students who are in his class were chosen carefully in order to excel in such unusual classroom.  Miriam is enjoying being in his class as did Brahms and Shannon who were also in his class when they were in 4th and 5th, and 5th, respectively.  All my kids feel privileged in having the only male teacher in the whole school other than the music teachers.  Mr. N is part of a lot of topics discussed in the house.  Fortunately, he made a deal with all the parents during Back-To-School Night that he will not believe all stories the students bring to school as we will not believe the stories they bring home from school.

Miriam is enjoying her time in 4th grade.  May God help her to continue make the right choices along the way.
