Thank you all for participating and helping make the day both productive and not-a-drag!

An excerpt from that letter is here below.

Dear Parents:

It’s the fifth week of the second semester, and with only fifteen weeks remaining your child will especially need your help to finish the ninth grade as a successful learner. Here are a few ways you can help:
  1. Make sure that your child is doing 20 minutes of independent reading three times a week. This can be a library book, magazine, or even website. This is a very important part of becoming a fluent reader.
  2. Check your child’s homework every day. Students will almost always have 15-30 minutes of homework from me each day. You can check the class website at for assignments and notes.
  3. Watch for signs of drug abuse – this is a major problem for all teenagers in high school these days. For more information, or help with a drug problem, please contact me or Ms. Makhani (the counselor).
  4. While the school and I try to provide access as much as we can, a home computer is becoming more and more a necessary tool for students. A good computer can be had for less than $200 these days and will last all the way through high school. If you’d like help choosing or even repairing a computer for your child, please contact me or programs such as Computer Recycling Center or Accelerated Schools.
  5. Make sure that your child gets enough exercise and sleep. Exercise helps self-esteem and brain function. Sleep helps physical growth and attention in class.

Here’s how your child is doing right now. Name : _____________________________ Date: __________________
