Mrs. Rutkowski and Mrs. Allen's 4th Grade Class

We keep moving forward, opening new doors,
and doing new things because we're curious
and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.

Welcome to
Mrs. Rutkowski and Mrs. Allen's
4th Grade C


It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the Fourth Grade at Dr. Charles C. Polk Elementary School, where dr
eams can always come true with hard work and dedication. Our fantastic team is excited to excel in learning and open our minds to new things everyday. Here, we will create memories and conquer our biggest goals. 

Our newest addition of cohort style classrooms is keeping our goals and mission focused and organized.  As the Mathematics and Science teacher, I am so excited to go full STEAM ahead as Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Math will all come together in a wonderful explosion of learning this year. I am also equally excited to be partnered up with Mrs. DiMare and Mrs. Allen. Our team would not be complete without our student intern, Ms. Manton. We are so excited to welcome her aboard this year and cannot wait to have a dynamic year! 

Mrs. Rutkowski is a graduate of Kean University with distinguished honors. I reside in the Colonia section of Woodbridge and have lived their my entire life. I was recently married in May of 2017 to my wonderful husband.My passion has always been teaching and I take pride in being part of the Polk community. This year, I am excited to see how we will grow as a family together.

Please follow this page every night as we will post their homework, monthly reports,  and any supplemental educational information we may find to help. Useful links for websites, reminders for projects, and all other information can be found here.

If you have ANY questions at all, please contact us as much as possible. We are available at the school from 7:30 am until 3:30 pm and we will respond to e-mail no matter what time of day in the most timely manner.

Let's work together as a team
and make this an extremely successful school year!
If you can dream it, you can do it !

All the best,
Ms. Rutkowski & Ms. Allen
