Mrs. Laura Kovatch, Fourth Grade

Hi! My name is Laura Kovatch and I teach fourth grade Language Arts and Science. This is my eleventh year here at St. John Fisher, and I feel so lucky to be part of such a wonderful school community. Outside of school, I love to travel and spend time with my family, especially my beautiful daughter Katelyn. I am looking forward to a wonderful school year together! 

Week of March 27th

I can't believe we are at the end of March!  The year continues to fly by!

To finish our unit on electricity, the students built circuits.  They worked to put together both a series and a parallel circuit.  They really enjoyed it and were able to see what we have been learning about come to life!
