Welcome 8th graders!

Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Engage me and I learn.

Dear Parents/Guardians and Students,

Welcome to the new school year! I am so excited to be your 8th grade teacher as a co-teacher for Mr. Reid in math, Mrs. Whitney in science, and Mrs. Orlando in social studies and/or your language arts teacher. We will have a fun year as we work together to promote independence and academic success! You will have to work hard and challenge yourself and I am eager to help you reach the goals you will set for yourself.

Parent and guardians, your child’s success is always my first priority. I understand that each student has individual needs, so please let me know if there is anything that I can do to better assist your child. The best way to contact me is via email: kellmers@mersnj.us. I check my emails daily, and will respond as promptly as possible.

Sincerely,

Mrs. Kristin Ellmers
