In 4th grade at Shellsburg Elementary, we build active and creative minds, a sense of understanding and compassion for others, and the courage to act on our beliefs. We strive to learn each day by cooperating with each other, respecting each other and by always showing effort to achieve our goals. We take pride in our community and our school. We build relationships with mentors at Collins Aerospace through correspondence in the Pen Pal program. In 4th grade, we get the opportunity to have fun learning experiences with Benton County Conservation as well as take field trips to Rodgers Park. We leave fourth grade more mature and ready to take on our new adventure as fifth graders.
