Cheryl Duke » Welcome


to 4th grade!
I am very excited to be your child's science, language arts and reading teacher this year. Please check the side tabs for more information about what we are doing in class. Science vocabulary and helpful videos will be posted for each unit of study. If we are reading a book as a class, there will be information about the book as well as vocabulary and chapter review questions. Grammar and writing help will be posted each week so you can be aware of what we are focusing on in class. 

Stay Informed

I use a text reminder application called Remind that will allow me to periodically send out classroom and school reminders via text message. Please use the link below to sign up for Remind messages. or text @dukescien to 81010
You will not receive advertisements and your phone number will remain private. You may opt out at anytime by texting "STOP" to the remind number.

Friday Folders

Every Friday your child will bring home a folder with graded papers and other information. Please be sure to review these over the weekend. There may be papers that require your signature to be returned the following week and/or fliers announcing upcoming events or opportunities in which your child could participate. 

Weekly Newsletter

Mr. Fielder and I send out a joint newsletter each week. You may access the newsletter from our websites. We will keep you updated on upcoming projects, events, activities, tests, and weekly spelling words.

Student Planners

Students are expected to fill out their assignments everyday in all of their core classes, take their planners home and have them signed by a parent each night. Misbehavior in the classroom/school is documented here as well. This is a great communication tool to use in all aspects of your child’s education.
Tutorial times are Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday mornings at 7:30. If your child has been absent and needs to make up work, this is a good time to accomplish that with help from me.
