Mr. Kooiker's 4th Grade Blog

Be Nice • Work Hard • Learn Well



It truly was an OUTSTANDING year, in spite of the COVID challenges! This amazing class was recognized for outstanding behavior sixty-four times.

The majority of their “outstandings” were earned in Art, Music, P.E. and STEAM. What makes it even more amazing is that the teachers in these areas continue to raise the bar for what is expected to earn an outstanding in their classroom. The students in room 302 rose to the challenge!

This accomplishment required every student in the classroom to work hard, be a leader (using words and actions), and respond to classmates reminders to fix things up when needed. They understood that their individual choices made a significant impact on the class as a whole.

Wow! This special group of fourth graders not only encouraged each other to be respectful and responsible, but they were also an amazing example for all of the other students at Georgetown Elementary!

Way to go outstanding students of room 302!

Merry Christmas!

As I was looking at the Christmas tree in our living room this morning, I thought about the first Christmas and what that must have been like…simple, yet so significant!   

I saw the many gifts under our tree that you so generously gave and the notes that were so thoughtfully written…and my heart was filled with gratitude! 

I also thought about the gift of every student in our classroom!  It is because of you that I look forward to going to school each day…you always were my favorite! 🙂

Parents, your support and encouragement is above and beyond…a gift every teacher would treasure!  I am humbled that you have entrusted your child to me this school year. It is an awesome privilege! 

Thank you SO much!  In spite of the challenges we faced this past year, we have a lot to celebrate during this Christmas season!

Merry Christmas!
