The fourth-grade teaching team, with a combined 119 years of experience in the field of education,  includes Mrs. Beganny, Mrs. Lerch, Mrs. Davidson, Mrs. NIckerson, Ms. Leclair and Ms. Drew. Together we plan and implement a year full of challenging learning opportunities.
Many groups typically partner with the 4th grade outside of the school including the Litchfield Conservation Commission, Friends of the Cobbossee Watershed, Strawbery Banke Museum, and Theater at Monmouth. These partnerships can lead to many fun and educational off-campus field trips such as Colby Art Museum, The Portland Symphony, Maine State Museum, two visits to Smithfield Plantation for Forestry day and History day. We plan to build these back into our curriculum as they become available.
