AP Calc Newsletter
Welcome to a new school year!
I'm creating this monthly newsletter as a way to keep you informed of what's going on in this class throughout the year. I want to make sure that you are aware of important dates, your child's progress, and any other pertinent information.
Please feel free to contact me at any time with any questions or concerns you might have.
My contact information:
My goal for this course is that it will be a fruitful learning experience for your child as their eyes are opened to a type of math they probably have never seen before. It's going to require some hard work and effort, but I think it will be beneficial to them in the end, even if they do not pursue math after high school.
