HELLO PARENTS/GUARDIANS,

   WELCOME TO THE NEW YEAR!  I AM HAPPY TO ANNOUCE THAT WE NOW HAVE A QUICK AND EASY WAY FOR YOU TO KNOW MORE ABOUT WHAT IS GOING ON IN OUR CLASSROOM.  I HAVE CREATED THIS WEBSITE IN HOPES THAT YOU AS THE PARENT/GUARDIAN, THE STUDENT, AND MYSELF, CAN COMMUNICATE EASIER AND YOU CAN LEARN ABOUT OUR CLASS NEWS AND EVENTS, CHECK ON YOUR CHILD'S HOMEWORK, FIND USEFUL AND EDUCATIONAL RESOURCES, AND MUCH MUCH MORE.

  FOR THE MOST PART, THE 1ST SEMESTER IS DONE.  SOME OF US [PARENTS/GUARDIANS AND MYSELF] HAVE DONE A GREAT JOB OF GETTING THE TASK AT HAND ACCOMPLISHED.  ALSO, FOR THE MOST PART, STUDENTS HAVE DONE AN EXCEPTIONAL JOB OF DOING THEIR PART.

   THERE ARE A COUPLE OF THINGS THAT I WOULD LIKE TO REINSTATE AND ONCE AGAIN ASK FOR YOUR HELP, COOPERATION, AND SUPPORT.

1.  SINCE THE BEGINNING OF SCHOOL, AUG. 2007, STUDENTS WERE REQUIRED TO PURCHASE AND BRING A STUDENT PLANNER TO CLASS.  THE FIRST TWO WEEKS OF SCHOOL, I EXCUSED IT.  FROM THEN ON, STUDENTS HAVE AND WILL CONTINUE TO BE PENALIZED DAILY ON THEIR PARTICIPATION GRADE.  ON THE PLANNER, THE STUDENT IS REQUIRED TO WRITE DOWN THE CLASS OBJECTIVES THAT I WRITE ON THE BOARD AND BEFORE THE END OF THE PERIOD, I MUST SIGN THEIR PLANNER.  I WOULD ALSO LIKE FOR YOU, AS THE PARENT/GUARDIAN TO SIGN THE PLANNER.  THAT WAY, WE ARE ALL ON THE SAME PAGE.

2.  I WOULD ALSO LIKE TO ASK FOR YOUR HELP AND COOPERATION IN MAKING SURE YOUR CHILD IS COMPLETING AND TURNING IN HIS/HER ASSIGNMENTS.  IF YOUR CHILD IS FAILING THE COURSE, IT MAY BE BECAUSE OF THESE TWO REASONS.

3.  I DO NOT ALLOW FOOD, DRINKS, OR GUM IN MY CLASS.  STUDENTS CAN ONLY HAVE WATER IN ITS ORIGINAL CONTAINER.  THESE ARE ALSO EXPECTATIONS OF THE SCHOOL IN GENERAL.

   * ALSO, STUDENTS ARE NOT ALLOWED TO LEAVE THE CLASSROOM FOR ANY REASON, UNLESS CALLE I D OF CLASS OR AN EMERGENCY TO THE NURSE.  THEY ARE NOT ALLOWED TO GO TO THE BATHROOM, GET A DRINK OF WATER, OR GO TO THEIR LOCKER TO GET SOMETHING.  THE ONLY WAY THEY WILL BE ALLOWED TO GO TO THE BATHROOM DURING CLASS IS IF THERE IS A MEDICAL DOCUMENTATION PROVIDED TO ME BY THE SCHOOL NURSE.

I BELIEVE ALL MY STUDENTS HAVE THE POTENTIAL OF BEING SUCCESSFUL IN MY CLASS.

THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING THAT YOU DO TO SUPPORT YOUR CHILD AND THEIR LEARNING.
