Dear Students, Parents, and Guardians, August 21, 2019
Welcome to Cajon Park! I am your sixth-grade math, advisory, social studies, and PE teacher. I am so excited to meet and get to work with you over the course of this year! I believe that when parents and teachers work together, children do better at school. Please check your child's planner and/or my teacher website nightly for a list of homework and class assignments. Students who do not acquire a parent's signature by Friday will receive a lower citizenship grade. Your child will write homework assignments in his/her planner. If your child uses his/her time wisely he/she should average about one-half hour of homework per night. Please make sure to check the PowerSchool website/app regularly to ensure and encourage your child’s academic success and progress. My math grading policy is described in another letter.

We want a positive learning environment for your child thus, we are continuing our Falcon Proud Mantra (see below) that encapsulates behavior expectations set forth in the Step Discipline System. This fits nicely with my philosophy of positive reinforcement and I am looking forward to implementing incentives to encourage PROUD behavior!
Own your actions
I would like students to have the following supplies:
- A 3-ring binder with divider tabs for Math (make sure it isn’t too big to fit in your backpack)
- Two highlighter markers of different colors
- Dry erase markers and eraser (a balled sock works well)
- A steady supply of lined binder paper and graph paper (loose-leaf paper please, not spiral-bound notebooks)
- A steady supply of pencils
- A hand-held pencil sharpener
- A set of crayons, colored pencils, or felt tip markers
- A ruler with standard and metric units
- A glue stick and scissors
I will offer math tutoring after school; Mondays, Tuesdays, and Fridays until 3 p.m. Please take advantage of this time if you are struggling or just enjoy math. More information to follow in the next couple of weeks. A permission slip will need to be signed prior to attending. This math club is not a social club. I do try to make it fun during the last 20 or 30 minutes with math activities and games.
I have many goals for this year. My first goal is to create a community where all students feel safe to take risks, make mistakes, and grow as human beings. My second goal is to connect content to real world examples and make connections to our own lives. My third goal is that we all come to class prepared, open-minded, and ready to learn. Overall, I want our classroom to be a place that we enjoy being in; we are going to have a lot of fun!
I look forward to meeting you on the first day of school, and to meeting parents/guardians on back to school night- August 27, 2019 at 5:45-6:45 p.m.
