Each year students bring special talents to a classroom, and when these talents are combined a new community is formed.  Every year the community takes a form that is as unique as the individuals who are a part of it.  As a result, a classroom is a place where more than curriculum is taught.

I truly believe that while I teach History, Math, and Language, the students (and I) also learn about perseverance, friendship, hard work, goal-setting, patience, loyalty, and faith.  It is in this rich environment that I am lucky enough to spend my days.

 Thank you for entrusting me with the instruction of you child(ren) this year.  I am looking forward to our year ahead.

Absences and Vacations
If your child is absent and you would like to arrange for missed work, there is no need to contact the office!  Please go to our Daily Agenda page to see what work was missed.  From there you can access our digital file cabinets in each subject.   Print or read from the website, but days missed no longer need to mean work missed!

If you are planning to be away for more than three days, and would like the work that will be missed, please provide one full week's notice.  A lesson's momentum, student comprehension, teachable moments - all of this impacts our classroom timelines.  To give you the most accurate work, time to properly reflect, look ahead, and organize is appreciated.

Daily Agenda
Every attempt is made to post daily work in the Agenda section before each school day.  

In the event of a meeting, appointment, absence or emergency, this may not always occur on the same day.

Cell Phones
Cell phones are collected each morning and returned at the end of the school day.  During the day, they are kept in a locked room.  If a phone is not handed in, and students are found using it, in accordance with Board policy the cell phones are brought to the office for parent pick-up.
