Dear Parents and Guardians,
Welcome to math at Aguirre Junior High School! I am honored to have your child in my class and very excited to work with you and your child throughout the year. Looking forward to being a part of the academic progress your child will make.
Being very passionate about my students, they will find that I am tough, but fair. I have extremely high academic and behavioral expectations for them. I anticipate that EVERY student will learn to love math to the best of their ability and achieve more in one year than they ever thought possible.
Because you are an integral part of your child’s education, I feel home-school communication is of vital importance. I hope to talk with each of my students' parents in the forthcoming weeks. I would like to extend an invitation for you to contact me at any time. I can be reached through the main office at school (281) 860-3300 or via email firstname.lastname@example.org. My conference time is at 1:19-2:09.
There are several ways you can help your child succeed in class.
Ask your child what he/she learned in school each day. This simple routine will help them review and find holes in their understanding. Please encourage your students to ask questions in class and come in for extra help when they need it. For now, I'm available after school on Tuesdays until 5:15.
Please look in their binders and interactive notebooks for things that we are covering in class. We will be keeping their binders here at school, but they will often be taking home their interactive notebooks for daily studying and homework folder which is located in the front of the binder. Please ask to see their graded papers which are located in a sheet protector in the math section of their binder. This will help both you and them stay up to date on exactly what grade they have in class and what areas they need to improve in. In the back of their binder they will keep their agendas which will have their upcoming events, important dates, test/quizzes, etc.
Also, praise them for doing well . . . they deserve it! Let's have a successful, exciting, productive year in math.
I look forward to working with you!
