-Kid President

Welcome to 4th Grade!

I am thrilled that you are in my class next year. We are going to learn so many new and exciting things together! I think it’s the best grade ever! We will get to learn about fractions, read some great stories, and do some exciting science experiments (my favorite!)

Now that you are in fourth grade, you are a leader in our school! This year, we will learn how to be role models and community leaders. We will learn to be independent thinkers and responsible citizens. We will problem solve, take risks, & challenge ourselves! I can’t wait for all the fun and exciting things we will do together, but most importantly, I can’t wait to watch you learn and grow! Here’s to a great school year!

About Mrs. Sharkey

Many years ago, I was babysitting my four year old niece when she began singing the ABCs. When she was done, I asked her who taught her that and she replied, "You did." That was the moment I decided to become a teacher, and it was the best decision I ever made! I absolutely love watching my students learn and grow!
Andrew Avenue School is an extra special place because we are a family! At our school, we support each other, love each other, and cheer each other on! We help each other become better each and every day. It truly is a great place to be!
