Dear families,

Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year! I’m thrilled to be teaching 8th grade comprehensive science, and cannot wait to meet all of my wonderful students and parents. This year promises to be an exciting one, and it is my hope that together we can make it both memorable and enriching.

I believe that communication is the cornerstone of student success. Accordingly, I encourage you to contact me at any time should you feel the need to. I have provided my contact information at the bottom of this letter, the best way to contact me is through email. Additionally, I am available for conferences with parents or guardians, and those can be arranged either by calling the school or contacting me directly. I also have Class Messenger. You can access this through the app or on the website (https://my.classmessenger.com/join/). You can join the class by looking up my last name or by the class code (2W3Q4Q). On here, I will be posting upcoming assignments including due dates for quizzes, projects, and homework assignments.

For this school year I am asking that you equip your child with 2 spiral or composition notebooks, a 2-pocket folder to keep worksheets and homework in, plenty of ruled paper, and pencils. Please try to have your child begin bringing this no later than Friday August 18th. Without proper materials it will be difficult to stay organized the entire year.

This year, 8th grade will be tested in science for the Florida Standard Assessment (FSA). This test will be in May. As we get closer to the test date, I will be available some mornings before school for extra help and review.

Attached, is a classroom rules and procedures handout, a contact information sheet, and a science safety contract. Please have these documents filled out, signed, and returned by Friday, August 18th.  The science safety contract will count as your child’s first assignment grade.

Again I am so happy to have the opportunity to get to know each of you this upcoming year. I believe that together we can make this year the best one!


Warmest regards,

Tara Herczeg
