• Welcome to Mrs. Dilling's 4th Grade Classroom at Pine Elementary Fine Arts Magnet School
    Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year. I am looking forward to having your child in my classroom this school year. This is going to be a year filled with many learning opportunities, successes, challenges, experiences, and growth for your child. Parents play a very important role in their child's education. Your support and guidance are greatly appreciated.  
    I feel that the classroom is a small community, so will we be working together to create a positive environment through CREW, class norms and expectations, and classroom rules. I will be using Class Dojo as a behavior/academic resource to monitor students as well as a way to communicate with parents. 
    I have posted some links to useful websites that we will be using under my class information tab on my teacher's website. Websites can also be found on the MCAS webpage under Learning Place. We will be using Schoology and PowerSchool this year. eLearning assignments will be accessed through Schoology and PowerSchool replaces RDS.   
     Feel free to contact me at any time through Class Dojo, email- cdilling@mcas.k12.in.us, or 219 873-2114 ext. 6822.
    Thank you,
    Cathy Dilling
