Dear Students and Families,
Welcome to 7th grade reading! I’m excited about the opportunity to get to know you, and I’m looking forward to a happy and productive school year.
Curriculum areas we will focus on this year include reading comprehension, vocabulary building and close reading skills.
My homework policy is that students should turn in their homework on time in order to keep their grades up to date and learn as much as possible.
My grading policy is that 30 percent of a student’s grades come from exams, while 60 percent come from homework. Finally is graded by participation with the final 10 percent.
Water bottles, gum and phones should not be in the classroom at any time.
If you have any questions or concerns or if you would like to visit our classroom, schedule a conference, or volunteer to help out, you can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. The best way to reach me is by email and I will respond within 24 hours. Please do not call the classroom during school hours as this can be a distraction.
Once again, welcome to 7th grade!. Let’s work together to make this the best year ever!
