I'm thrilled to have joined the St. Paul community last year and look forward to an exciting 2017-2018 with the seventh graders! I challenge all students to be ready to learn in Reading/Language Arts and to grow throughout the year in their faith identity.
PARENT INFORMATION NIGHT LETTER
I am thrilled to return to SPC for the 2017-2018 school year and look forward to working with the 7th graders! Hopefully your student has already told you about some of the activities we have worked on during our first few days together. We’ve also taken time to review our classroom rules and procedures that are posted on the wall; the students are expected to adhere to them daily.
As a class, we discussed how many of the 7th graders are able to ask questions, clarify confusion, and problem-solve on their own. However, as parents you play an integral role in your children’s education and I welcome your interaction, questions, and comments. Please feel free to contact me at any time and I will respond to you promptly.
Below is a list of textbooks and novels that we will use in class this year. Homework that is assigned will always be posted on my SPC page, so please refer to that if your child forgets to write it down. I look forward to challenging your children and having fun throughout the 2017-2018 school year!
