Mrs. Christina Ling « Teacher Connection / Documents / Calendar


Don't forget that Open House is Thursday, August 28th from 6:00-8:00 pm. :) 

Due to laws regarding privacy, use of email is limited.  All email sent or received through the school is public record and will be stored permanently.  If you have questions regarding your child's behavior or grades please send in a note or call the school and leave a message so the teacher may return your call. You may refer to any of our classroom websites for information regarding homework, tests, class activities, etc. or to your child's planner for missing assignments and other information.  If you still have a question regarding information please feel free to send an email.  If we are unable to answer your question through email, we will either send home a note in your child's planner or call you.  If you do send an email please make sure to type "student" in the subject line to ensure that your email is received. 

Please regularly log into Pinnacle Grade Book and view your child's grades.  If you have forgotten, or misplaced, your login and password, please contact Tara Milow at the Central Office (Phone number 352-259-6848).

Just a reminder to parents, please make sure you are looking at the correct assignments and PDF files as I am teaching 7th Grade Civics and 8th Grade American History. I will try my best to label accordingly. 

All classwork (CW) and homework (HW) for the week are located on the Monday for that week.  Please print that page out and place it where your child can see it so that they are making sure that they are accomplishing all of their work.  I have also posted many PDF files below that contain information that has also been handed out in class.  If your child loses or misplaces something, please look below for a replacement.  If it is something that you do not see there, just ask. 

If you donate something for the classroom, make sure to send in the receipt, or a note or send an email to let me know how much to credit you for PI hours.
