Fourth grade is a memorable year full of fun experiences and lots of learning. Every fourth-grader gets a teacher mentor to help them plan for their future. This mentorship gets students thinking about their future careers. We offer engaging enrichment classes to broaden student’s thinking. It’s a year when students get to go deeper into independent learning.


Grandparent’s Day: This is a special day where grandparents are invited into our classrooms to visit and explore the world of fourth grade.

Christmas Around the World: Every year we have a big Christmas Around the World unit. We study different countries and their traditions within our four classrooms. At the end of the study, we have a celebration and travel from country to country.

Russellville Junior Firefighter Challenge:  Fourth grade students get the chance to compete against their classmates to complete the RJFC.  Students will practice the obstacle course in their PE classes, and Coach Jenkins will pick the top 3 boys and girls from each class with the fastest finish times.  Those students will go on to compete against the other fourth grade classes at Oakland.  The top 3 boys and girls from the entire grade level will go on to compete against all fourth grade top finishers in the entire district at the annual Russellville Downtown Fall Fest the last Saturday in October.

Tour of RIS: Before entering fifth grade, our students get to visit UE5G to get their jitters out and experience a day in fifth grade.

Track Meet: This day is a fun-filled day where students at our school get to compete against the other elementary schools in our district.

Graduation Party: A surprise graduation party for the students is full of fun and enjoyment.

Graduation: This is a day to remember how amazing each child has done over the year. Students are presented with graduation certificates and a special ceremony.
