Dear Parents/Guardians,

We would like to welcome your child to sixth/seventh grade!  Students will have five teachers this year.  The list of teachers and subjects are:

*Mrs. Joni Lowe—Reading          *Mrs. Shona Lowe—Writing/English         *Mr. Orrin Davis—Math

*Mrs. Carol Dopp—Science         *Mrs. Renee Byrd—Social Studies

 

Each teacher will have different assignments and responsibilities, so it is very important that students stay organized.  You can help them do this by encouraging organization and good study habits at home.  Students need to make sure to keep their notebooks neat and orderly so they can stay organized in each individual class.

 

Good attitudes and habits of students are important elements to maintain stability within the classroom.  Effort, as far as attitude and academics, is essential to learning.  Good attendance, as well as being on time, are important.  Homeroom class begins at 7:50 each day.  Please make sure your child is on time.

 

We plan on having some rewards for positive behavior this year.  Students perform better in the classroom when emphasis is placed on positive behavior, rather than negative.  Let’s focus on the positives!

 

Students will be bringing some paperwork home for you to fill out.  Please try to get that back to us by Wednesday, August 14th.

 

Our planning time is from 8:50-9:35 every day.  If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call us at school during those times to schedule a conference.  You may also contact us by email.

 

We look forward to working with you and your child.  We know that we will have a very fun and successful year!

 

Sincerely,

Mrs. Lowe  ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it )
