Dear Parents and Guardians,


Welcome to the 9/10th grade at Bronx Latin School!  My name is Ms. Mendes and I am your child’s year long teacher.  I am very pleased and excited to get to know you and your child this year.  I know we will have a successful, productive year, and I look forward to being a part of all of the wonderful progress that your student will make.


At Bronx Latin we have high expectations for every student in our classrooms, and we expect nothing but the best both in academics and in behavior. As ninth/tenth graders, all students will be exploring and learning constantly.  This is only possible if a safe, working community is established in our classroom. We look forward to working closely with each of you to help foster that classroom environment, while meeting all of our student’s needs.


This packet contains important information about classroom procedures and other information that you will need to help your student have the best year possible.


Here are some important ways that you can help your student succeed:


  • Ask your student what they learned in school that day, and constantly reinforce these skills at home.
  • To the greatest extent possible, be sure to check that your child completed the assigned homework each night.  Please find a spot for your student to complete their homework that is away from any noise or distraction. 
  • Our classroom door is always open.  If you would like to visit the classroom please let me know and we can set up an appointment with our Parent Coordinator.  If you would like to help out in the class, please let me/us know!


I will do my best this year to be in constant communication with you about your child’s progress. I am/we are looking forward to all of the great things that your student will be doing this year! Please contact me at any time if you have any questions.
