4th Grade

Welcome to Mrs. Thomas's Classroom

I am excited to have you in my class! The year ahead of us is filled with many new things to learn, friends to meet and play with, and exciting projects to do. We will take field trips that will help us learn and understand more about Kansas history and great people we are proud to say are from Kansas. I look forward to growing and learning with you this year and getting to know you better as we spend our fourth grade year together.

"“I can do all things through Him who gives me strength.”"
