Welcome to Our Shining Star Class

Over the past few years, my students knew me as Ms.Torres. However, over the summer I got married! My new name is Mrs.Guzman. I am a Weehawken alum and this is my fourth year teaching 4th grade. I am excited to have your children in my class! I know that with the support that is given both at home and school, we will all have an amazing year!
You can always find current announcements, upcoming tests and pictures taken during the school day on my webpage. So I highly suggest, checking here for up to date information a few times a week for parents and students.

Extra help is provided every Tuesday and Thursday at 8am.
Remember, it is very important to check ParentPortal for your child's current average throughout each marking period. 
I will provide your children with two important folders: Red folder-this will hold their current tests, that should be signed and returned the following school day. Yellow folder- this will have important information that needs to be either returned the following school day or kept at home. 
Also, remember to check your child's assignment pads for important information as well.
The best way to contact me is via email:

Alien Project

Students must bring in both research and materials for this Alien project by this Friday. Students will work on creating their alien all in class. Please ask your child for the worksheet about this project for further information.


*Students should be reading, practicing their typing skills, reviewing their PARCC packets and taking the practice PARCC tests online.
* Students need to make sure they go to sleep early, get to school on time and eat a big breakfast. We highly suggest no students be absent during these test days. However, if they are absent, they will have a chance to makeup their day. Also if your child is "opting out" of the PARCC test, please make sure to bring in a note asap.
