Welcome to Calvary Christian School!
Many of you have had your children here for years, but for those of you that are new, my name is Mrs. Wallace, aka Mrs. Wally. I have been teaching for 26 years, mostly at the lower elementary level. This year I am your child’s reading teacher. I will be doing a daily pull out for children in the third and fourth grades as I teach them reading and language to each grade.
It is my hope and goal to not only teach the mechanics of writing, but to also incorporate writing into the daily lives of the students. When this happens, I hope it will become as natural as breathing. The beauty of the spoken and written Word was designed by God. It was given as a gift from the Father to instruct, reproof, and causes us to love like He does!
It is also my goal to help each child become a good listener. When we learn to listen, then we become better readers and writers. It is my desire to partner with you to help your child to have excellence in all areas of language. We are excellent because God is excellent!
I have many fun and exciting activities planned for third and fourth grades this year! It is my hope, that as we focus on the Lord, we will we will use our God given talents to glorify Him, and that you as parents will be blessed by your child’s progress!
In language your child will be graded in the following way:
*20% projects and writing activities
*10% attitude and participation
In reading your child will be graded in the following way:
*40% oral reading
*30% read and think quizzes
If you have any concerns or questions, please write me a note or call the school office. It is my greatest joy to have a part in your child’s development this year!
Love in Christ’s Name,
