Mrs. Shylo Solano » HOME


Welcome to fourth grade!
I am Mrs. Solano. During a "typical school year" I teach fourth grade, I organize our school's Oral Language Festival competition, our Spelling Bee, our Bank of America Speech contest (5-6th grade only), and I periodically host Homework Club (Club Ace) in the spring. I've been teaching here at Norris since the year before this campus was built. I taught second grade for eight years, then moved up to fourth, and have been here ever since. I love my students, I love what I do, I believe in what we can do together. 
This year will be tough! Your student will be pushed and far surpass what he/she thought he/she could do. Get ready!
It's also on the right side of this homescreen under "links". I will also add it to each of the day's schedule pages.
PARENTS: Join my Remind app so you can text me anytime! I'll send reminders via Remind as well. I'll add this link to the "links" page.
