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 reading. Mrs. Barrett teaches math, and Mrs. Baxter
teaches 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).
