•  Welcome to Fourth Grade! 

    I am so delighted to begin the 20-21 school year with you.  I know that we will face new challenges as we learn to use our new distance learning models, but together we can do this with patience, empathy, and grace. 


    Please join us for Curriculum Night on Wednesday, September 2, 2020.  If you are unable to join our Zoom meeting, please click here to view the Curriculum Night Presentation


    A Return to In Person Learning

    I am so excited to announce that 4th grade will be returning to campus on Monday, October 5, 2020! As concerns may arise, please know that I will do my best to work through any issues experienced by students and families. I am looking forward to meeting and working with your student in person.  

    Please make sure that your student returns to school with their math binder, Into Reading workbooks, pencils, crayons, colored pencils or markers, dry erase markers, scissors, 2 glue sticks, spiral notebook, and 3 folders. Students who have checked out a DV Chromebook must bring back to campus on our first day back. 



    As students Return to Learning on Campus Virtually or Return to Learning Deer Valley Online Academy all courses will be taught through the Canvas platform. All students need to login into Canvas on Monday, August 3, 2020 to begin the school year. Students will need their DVUSD student login information. The username for your student in most cases begins with the initial of their first name followed by the initial of their middle name and the first 3 letters of their last name as well as the last 3-digits of their student ID (lunch number) for example lznef301. The password is your student's lunch number.
