Hello My Name Is...

Mrs. Collins

Hello Parents/Guardians,

        Welcome to Fourth grade at Paper Mill Elementary School. My name is Sherri Collins and I will be your childs teacher this year. Fourth grade is an incredible adventure, filled with wonderful activities and experiences. We will have fun with science experiments and math centers. We will make new friends, write stories, read fantastic books, and learn how to be a much more active learner.

        In our school, learning is a team effort, and you and I have a common goalto help your child become an independent, joyful learner. To do this, I will utilize every available minute of our day to enrich your childs learning. I will also send homework which supports classroom instruction, Monday - Thursday. This includes Daily Reading for 15 minutes each night.  As for your support, I would suggest helping your child by reviewing their daily agenda, checking that homework is complete, find ways to read to them as often as possible, and finally, support them during the various challenges of becoming a more independent learner. To view the current curriculum frameworks, go to:  As you can see, we are in this together; myself and your childs first, and best teacher, you! I have high expectations for your child and I will do all that I can to help your child achieve those expectations.

        Thank you for your commitment to your child's education and success and I look forward to getting to know you and your child this year!
