• Welcome to Mrs. Dilling's 4th Grade Classroom at Pine Elementary Fine Arts Magnet School
    Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year.  I am looking forward to having your child in my classroom this year.  This is going to be a year filled with many learning opportunities, successes, challenges, experiences, and personal 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.  I will be using Class Dojo as a behavior plan to monitor students and keep parents informed.  Letters were sent home with information for parents to sign up through email. Also, look for homework folders almost every night.  Homework is given as an extension of the skills that we are covering in class.

    Welcome to 4th grade! My name is Cathy Dilling. I was born and raised in Michigan City and have lived here for most of my life. I have been teaching at Pine Elementary for most of my career. I earned both my Bacholer's and Master's Degree from Purdue University. Go Boilers!  I'm married with 3 children. My oldest daughter got married last summer. I also have a dog named Gizmo, due to the fact that he looked like a Gremlin when he was a puppy.
