Aug. 2017

    Dear Parents, 

    Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year at Cajon Park Jr. High.  As your 7th grade student’s History/Language Arts teacher, I would like to share some important information that may help your student succeed in our class this year.


    Instruction will be based on the Santee School District and California State standards for Ancient World History. We will be exploring ancient civilizations such as China, Japan, and Africa.  We will be taking a more detailed look at Europe during the Middle Ages. Grades are based on class work, homework, quizzes, unit tests, activities and projects.  Please check your student’s agenda for other Cajon Park grading policies. You are encouraged to check grades on Power School weekly if not more often. Assignments will be listed on my Santee School District website, and your student will also be responsible for writing the assignments down in their personal agendas/planners.  Books for home will be available for checkout if the book is not available to you on-line. A CD of the book is also available for checkout.


    We will be using the 5-step discipline program and your student will have a copy of my individual classroom standards.  Feel free to contact me directly by phone at 956-2457, or e-mail me at john.beacom@santeesd.net especially if there are additional questions or concerns.


    I am looking forward to working with you and your student this year. Back to School Night on August 29, 5:15-6:30 is a great chance to meet me in person and ask questions about our program.


                                                                Thank you,

                                                                            Mr. J. Beacom
