Welcome to 4th Grade!

A little about me... I am married to my wonderful husband, Austin, and we have one beautiful daughter, Kaylyn, and a new baby boy, Cade. I graduated from SouthPicture of Mrs. Cowanwestern Oklahoma State University with my degree in Elementary Education. I graduated with my masters in Curriculum and Instruction from Southeastern Oklahoma State University last fall. I taught at Centennial in second grade for two years before my husband took a job in Tyler, TX. I took the year off when we moved and spent time with our daughter! Just 10 short months later we moved right back to Mustang, OK when my husband was offered at position at OU. I knew immediately I wanted to be back at Centennial doing the very thing I love, teaching! I taught first grade for a year before I moved up to fourth grade! This will be my second year in fourth and I am so excited to get back in the classroom! I love working with kids but in my off time I enjoy doing ANYTHING outdoors. We love sports (BOOMER) and enjoy cooking out and watching whatever sporting event is taking place that day!
You will be able to find a lot of important information here on my website but also be sure to check your child's binder for important notes that may come home. Feel free to contact me by phone, email ([email protected]) or Remind! I try to respond as quickly as possible during school hours.  

Homework Information

Homework is an important component of your child's education. On Mondays, I will send home either a reading OR math homework paper for the week. Students will  have until Friday to turn it in. Please make sure your child is completing the work and returning it by the due date. Any unfinished work may be sent home at the end of the day, in addition to, any homework assigned that night.  

Math: Math homelinks will also be sent home 2-3 times a week to practice the skill taught that day. Homelinks are expected to be turned in the following day. In addition to homelinks. Reflex Math should be practiced at least 2-3 times a week until a "green light" is given. This is a great resource to use those days homelinks are not sent home.

Birthday Information

Student birthdays will be recognized once a month.  All students recognizing a birthday for that month will bring their treat the same day. This day will be school wide. This day will be held on the first Monday of each month. If the first Monday of the month falls on an out-of-school day, the celebration will be held on the first Monday of the month that school is in session. June & July birthdays can be celebrated with the May birthdays; August birthdays will be celebrated with September birthdays. Parents are welcome to send snacks with their child the morning of the designated day or they may drop them off at the office before 9:00 am.  Please do not feel obligated to bring anything, as it is only by choice. I appreciate your understanding of this.  I have attached a list of dates for our Birthday snacks.
