WELCOME BACK!

               I hope that you and your family had an enjoyable summer -                        how quickly it went by!

I am looking forward to a fabulous year! Meeting with incoming 6th graders and their parents on August 29th will start the year off.

First quarter progress reports will be ready on Power School on October 3rd. Remember you can check your child’s progress anytime by using the Parent Portal. If you are having trouble accessing this, please call Cathy Johnson            in the guidance office.

Please contact me if you wish to discuss your child or set up a meeting time with teachers. I look forward to speaking with you.

I will be working with 8th graders this quarter on Monday-Wednesday-Friday. Students will be graded on journals, class participation, and class work. On Tuesdays and Thursdays, students will work with Mrs. Thompson on Careers. (see her teacher site for more information) Grades from these two classes will appear on the report card as one grade. This grade will count toward honor roll.

We will begin the year with “The Three R’s of Growing up.” These include Being Responsible, Doing the Right Thing, and Self-Respect.

Topics to be included throughout the quarter:

Enhancing Self-Esteem

Setting and Achieving Goals

Dealing with Pressures

Handling Emotions

Preventing Conflicts and Violence

Saying “No” to Alcohol and Other Drugs

Speaking of Sex

Friendship

Getting Along with Parents

Respecting Others
