Dear Parents of Students of Mrs. Minor’s English Class,
Your son/daughter will be doing a lot of learning vocabulary, practicing grammar, writing, and learning root words, prefixes and suffixes in my class. My web site will have due dates as well as a brief description of what will go on in my classroom on a daily basis( look at the calendar). Please look for study guides at the bottom of my web site under “Attachments”. Your student might need them if they forget their notebook at school.
Please familiarize yourself with the tardy policy and the dress code policy in the student handbook. Also, now would be a good time for me to let you know how I handle disruptive behavior in my class. I will give the student a warning about his/her behavior followed by a conference with the student if the disruptive behavior continues, followed by a conference with the parent if the disruptive behavior continues followed by a referral. This assures that the rest of the class will not be affected by one student’s disruptive behavior.
Assignments that are turned in one day late will receive 70% of the grade that they would have received if the assignment had been turned in on time. Assignments turned in two or more days late will not receive any credit.
Welcome to the 2014/2015 school year; I hope you’re as excited about it as I am!
