Welcome to the 2014-2015 school year.
I am so excited to be teaching 6th grade math students again this year. It will be an amazing year of discovery, growth, skill acquisition, and maturity. 6th grade is a time when students are changing daily, and friends and friendships become so very important.
Parents, please take a moment to prepare your child for the homework expectations that we have in middle school math. There will be homework assigned nightly to reinforce what has been taught in class, and this means on Friday nights as well. I know this is a change for many new 6th grade students, but it is a necessary one that may follow them throughout the rest of their academic career. The students who complete their homework to the best of their ability every night are those who are the most successful. We build on previous skills every day so it is very important that the students are keeping up with their daily assignments. Grades will be recorded for homework practice, Mid-Chapter Quizzes, and Chapter Tests.
Please be sure to check my website frequently as I post all class assignments and homework on the website. You will find all assignments for the entire week posted on the calendar on Mondays.
I look forward to developing a partnership between the parents, students, and myself to ensure your childís academic success. This is going to be a great year and I canít wait to begin!
