       Hello and welcome to a new school year. I am here to help your child in any way I can but ultimately each individual will gain from school according to the effort they apply. To increase the degree of educational success it is imperative that we work together. If you ever have a concern or idea that may be helpful please feel free to contact me either through e-mail or the school's phone system. Good times to reach me are from 8:00-8:30 or 9:00-9:40 or from 3:15-3:45. I will have your son/daughter for Reading, English, Writing, Spelling, and Social Studies. 

       Something new and exciting for your student this year is that in Fourth Grade students will have another teacher. Mrs. McCall is my team partner. Students will have her for Math and Science. They will be switching classes. 

       Homework and test dates should be on the school calendar weekly and also put on the the Remind app. These will be used daily stating all these important things occuring in my classroom. I will send examples of tests and classwork home on this. Please take the time and join the app. You can text the number 81010 and the message is @mrcordekla. This will get you text messages from me on all important things going on. All assignments are written on the homework board well before dismissal time. Homework can also be found on my calendar at the Forest Hills School District Website. Please check your child's progress weekly on-line through the Parent Access Tab. I will also be keeping tests for the year in a student portfolio. If at any time you would like to see the portfolio, call or email me and I will gladly send the portfolio home. I like to keep the tests in case there is a question on them throughtout the year. Please use ThinkCentral for a copy of the book and worksheets in English and Spelling. You can use any of the icons on the page when you log in. 


         Go to the Think Central web page and log in using the process below. Once logged in, go to My Library. Click on the Reading tab. You can pick the icons Journeys Practice Book L4 and Journeys Student E Book L4. This is the student reading text and the workbook for English, spelling, and reading worksheets for each story. The other icons are helpful, but we do not use them much during instruction. The students log into this site weekly, so they should know how to log in already. If not the log in process is as follows:

                                                  log in: firstnamelastname@fhsd

                                                  password: ranger



    I am looking forward to learning with you and your child.  Together I know that the school year will be a great success.


    P.S. If your child receives a D or F on a test, they can ask me to retake a test at any time. I will give them the average of the two test grades. Just have them come and see me please. If you have any questions, please let me know.
