Dear Parents,
               This week the sheets that the students have in their homework are meant to be practice sheets for concepts that have been taught in class. These concepts will be on upcoming assessments. Students are not required to do all of the sheets; but they are encouraged to give some a try and to see me with any questions before Wednesday of this week. Homework will be due back on Tuesday of next week.

Welcome back!
                        It is hard to believe that the beginning of the school year has arrived. It seems like it was only yesterday that I was wishing my former students a safe and happy summer. As sad as I am to see summer come to an end, I am very excited about having the opportunity to work with each of you this upcoming year.
                         A few things that you should know before you arrive.......First of all, I have changed classrooms. I am now located in Mr.Carr's old room. For those of you who are new to the school, I am the last classroom on the left in the Senior Wing. Second, there is an open house and PSSC election scheduled for this coming Thursday from 4:30-6 p.m. I hope that all of you are able to attend and please bring your school supplies with you that evening. Finally, the IslandView 5Km fun run\walk is scheduled for Oct.18th so lace up those running shoes and get out and get active.
                                                                                                                      See you all soon.
