Dear Parents,


Welcome to the new school year! I’m thrilled to have your child in my classroom this year and look forward to getting to know you and your child better. Together, we’ll form a productive partnership to ensure your child achieves his or her highest potential and all of his or her learning goals.


I’m looking forward to a year filled with challenges and excitement. The below link will give you access to the Mississippi State standards which are aligned with our teaching objectives, this will help you understand what your child will be focusing on throughout the school year.


In order to support your child’s learning, I ask that you ensure he or she:


     Arrives at school each day on time and ready to learn.

     Gets plenty of rest.

     Completes all homework assignments on time.

     Share’s school experiences with you so that you are aware of and involved in the learning process.

     Informs you (or myself) if additional support is needed in any subject area. 

Homework Policy


Homework and practice together both provide opportunities for students to deepen their understanding and strengthen their skills and it is important to ensure that the purpose of homework assignments is clear.


A.    Supervise time and efficiency of completion of assignments.

B.     Furnish essential supplies, resources, and a silent place for the student to complete assignments.

C.     Correspond when the student is struggling and needs reasonable assistance with completing assignments independently and timely.


Reviewed with Student along with rules and procedures


v  I expect each student to conduct themselves in an appropriate manner at all times in the classroom. Be respectful of me, other students, and yourself. Use appropriate language that is formal in nature and professional in tone. Manage your own behavior and accept responsibility for the consequences of negative behavior. Disruptive, disrespectful behavior will not be tolerated.


v  I expect each student to work hard at all times in the classroom. Complete your assignments on time and take pride in your work. Take ownership of your learning. Put forth 100% effort to maximize what you learn and accomplish in the classroom.



v  I expect each student to pay close attention to my instruction. Stay focused during reading/discussion. Do not talk while I or others are reading or talking. Follow instructions carefully. You may ask for further explanation, but do not ask me to repeat something because you were not paying attention.


v  I expect each student to succeed. You have complete control over your academic success. If you need additional help, you need to be proactive in asking me. I will help you succeed in any way I can. If you work hard, attend class regularly, complete assignments on time, and participate in classroom activities and discussion, you will succeed. This is your education. You will take it with you when you leave here. It is up to you to make it what you want it to be. Invest your time and energy in this valuable asset. Be excited, be positive, and be enthusiastic about learning.
