• Welcome to 4th Grade!

         Fourth grade at Goldendale Primary School is a great combination of youth and
    experience. Mrs. Baxter has over 20 years experience in more than one state, and
    Mrs. Wirick and Mrs. Barrett bring the new ideas and enthusiasm of youth.
    Classes have been departmentalized so each teacher can focus on an area of
    expertise. Mrs. Wirick teaches science and social studies. Mrs. Barrett teaches math, and Mrs. Baxter
    teaches reading and writing. Fourth grade has an emphasis on learning about salmon and the
    local Native Americans which includes a couple exciting field trips to local fish
    hatcheries. Another exciting activity includes building a Celilo Falls’ village.
    Through weekly popcorn sales, students are able to make a trip to Portland to
    visit the Oregon Museum of Science (OMSI).
