         We are happy to welcome you to Dishman Elementary’s Fourth Grade Team!  We look forward to working with your child as we seek to develop academic champions.  Fourth graders are challenged with increased levels of responsibility and higher level thinking.  The State of Texas administers three S.T.A.A.R. (State of Texas Assessment of Academic Readiness)

Tests to all fourth graders toward the end of the year.  Each student will complete a Reading, Math, and Writing Assessment.

The writing assessment consists of two components:  grammar and writing administered over a two day period. Because of this increase in responsibility, students are required to read for Accelerated Reader credit and memorize multiplication and division facts through the 12’s.  We will work diligently to help your child develop strong organizational skills.   As always, we cannot do our job effectively without the support of our amazing parents.  We look forward to working closely with you to help your child be successful in the Fourth Grade.Striving to build champions, every day, in every way!!!
