Hello & Welcome!

I hope that you had a restful and fun summer! My summer break was amazing - lots of time with family & friends, outdoor adventures, projects around my house, and lots of RELAXING. As good as vacation was, I am excited to be back for my 9th year at RHL and am looking forward to seeing all of the wonderful RHL students & families!

As we work together this year, please keep the following in mind:

  • I have designed my classes to allow students choice within the framework that I provide to ensure that they meet the learning standards of the course. This gives students more flexibility than they may be used to in a math course so it is imperative that the parent/guardian is in-tune with weekly coursework completion by engaging with the student in the learning process.

  • In an effort to not bombard you with a ton of emails, I will use google classroom to communicate with students/families regarding the math courses that I teach. Please access your student's google classroom where you will find the resources for each lesson.

  • Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns so that we can work together as we embark on this learning adventure. I truly want your family to be successful in my class, I can't help if I'm not aware of a problem. The easiest way to contact me is by email. I do my best to respond to emails by the next day if not sooner: vandermolen.quincy@battlegroundps.org

I look forward to partnering with you!

How to Support Learning Math @ Home

  • Ask about the concepts they are learning and have them show you their notes/practices

  • Check their progress and look at their progress tracker - pacing is about 2 lessons per week

  • Encourage them to ask questions and to seek help to improve their understanding

  • Hold them accountable to working on their coursework at home - about 3 hours each week

  • Let them know that learning math can be challenging at times, but that they can do it!
