Happy New Year! (Stuff for Parents of Grade 7 ELA Students to Know)

September, 2015
Dear Parents and Guardians,
Welcome to grade 7 ELA class!
I’m looking forward to working with you to help your student have a great school year.
Here are some expectations I’ll share with your student related to behavior in my class:

  1. We listen respectfully when someone is talking.
  2. We arrive at class ready and prepared to learn.
  3. We show respect to each other at all times.
  4. We work to the best of our ability.

I’m hopeful that you’ll find these rules fairly straightforward and easy for your student to follow.
In addition, I’ll enforce the rules of student conduct as explained in the middle school handbook.
While the majority of assignments will be completed during class time, occasionally there will be work for the student to do at home. Typical homework assignments may include independent reading, writing/revising essays or other written assignments, etc.

While we’re on the subject of homework, here’s some that could really help me if you have the time to complete it:

“Please write an email or letter that describes your child. Include anything that you would like me to know about your child, his or her needs, your goals, etc. If there is anything you would rather share or ask me in person, we can certainly set up a conference time in the first weeks of school." 

NOTE: While I will make every effort to post reminders about assignments on the Team Whiteface page at www.slcs.org, it may not always be possible to do so. If you have questions about homework, or anything else pertaining to ELA class, please feel free to call me at home: 354-8496 or email me at carlistdon@slcs.org.
