English Language Arts/Starr

Week of September 7-11

NEWS

Please note that Open House will be on Thursday, September 10th. First, there will be a parent meeting in the NEW GYM from 5-5:30 pm, and you may meet your student's teachers (in any order you wish) from 5:30-7 pm. Please understand that due to the number of parents participating in this event, teachers will not likely have an opportunity to speak with you at length about anything specific pertaining to your child that evening. Should you have any specific questions or concerns, I do hope you will request a phone call or meeting with me at a later date.


In addition, progress report grades will be sent home with your student the following week, but please check his/her grades online frequently via the Home Access Center (HAC) and encourage him/her to turn in any missing assignments.


Have a wonderful holiday weekend!
