Welcome!

I would like to welcome your child to my class and I hope this will be a most successful year for all of us.  When e-mailing me, please put your child’s name and period in the subject line. When possible PLEASE e-mail instead of calling.

The following information includes guidelines for classroom procedures that are important for you and your child:

  • Be on time for class.  You should be in your assigned seat, ready to begin work, with pencils already sharpened when the tardy bell rings.
  • You should come to class with required classroom materials, homework, and a book for recreational reading.  Students should check the Promethean board and homework board when entering the classroom and begin working right away.
  • All assignments must be turned in on time.  Refer to the RMS Work Recovery Policy.
  • PLEASE CHECK THE PARENT PORTAL AT LEAST ONCE A WEEK
  • EVERY EFFORT WILL BE MADE TO KEEP MY WEBSITE UP TO DATE.  HOWEVER THE FINAL WORD ON ASSIGNMENTS WILL BE WHAT IS STATED IN CLASS.  PLEASE CHECK YOUR STUDENT’S AGENDA.
  • Arrangements for make-up assignments or work missed due to an absence must be made on the first day the student returns to school after the absence.  The student is responsible for obtaining his / her assignments.  If an assignment was made prior to an absence that assignment is due the day the student returns.
