Hello! Welcome to 4th grade at Belfast Central School! I am Mrs. Mullen and have been teaching at BCS since 1986. Many of your mothers and fathers were my students way back when! That's what I love about this small school and small town. When I'm not enjoying teaching, I love riding horses, spending time with my family, traveling, watching sports, reading, sewing and crocheting. I have three grown children, two delightful grandchildren and a wonderful husband. My hope for all of my students is that they will grow into adults that love learning, life and their families! I love to hear from past students and where they are today. Feel free to write me a note!

OPEN HOUSE: Join us from 6:00-7:30 for Open House at the school. Come and see your child’s projects and many displays and activities.
NO SCHOOL: There is no school on Friday, March 15 for students due to teacher in-service.
FRACTION DAY: Wednesday, March 20 will be fraction day for our 3rd and 4th graders. Many are struggling with fractions and our hope is that this day will help them understand and become more familiar with using fractions.
AGENDAS: Please make sure you are checking your child’s agenda each day for assignments owed, things needing to be signed and notes from the teacher and school. This is an important home to school communication tool. Students not having agendas signed will not be able to eat in the room on Fridays. Thank you for your help in keeping our children responsible.
RECESS & GYM: Please send sneakers with your child every day!
MATH FACTS: If your child is struggling, please spend a few minutes each night practicing facts. This is increasingly becoming an issue as we learn long division and fractions! We are still working towards a party!
INDEPENDENT READING: Students should have at least 24 points read for the month of February. They will need 4 more points for March for a total of 28 points. They must read at least one point during March even if they are ahead of the 28 point goal. Students spend at least 20 minutes a day reading independently in school which should be enough to easily meet their goal. However, your child may also read books at home and bring them in to take quizzes. Your child has _______ points.
