Keeping In Contact
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns. My plan time is from 8:00-9:00. Parent contact will be made as needed. I can be reached at 478-763-2673 or firstname.lastname@example.org I also have a website that I try to keep updated with homework and test dates.
To get better at math we have to practice math. Students will usually be issued homework Monday through Thursday. All homework is due the following school day. Points may be deducted for late work. Students with excused or unexcused absences have a total of 3 days to turn in missed assignments. Students will NOT be given zeroes for all work not completed BUT they will be missing a chance to practice math and therefore increase their knowledge and grades. Students must show all work in pencil.
Homework/Classwork: 40% Quizzes/Performance Tasks: 30% Unit Assessments: 30% Student progress may be viewed at www.emanuel.k12.ga.us in the Parent Portal.

Enter classroom quietly with all materials and be seated. Begin your opening assignment immediately.
Pay attention and participate during instruction.
Complete daily assignments and agenda as indicated. New daily Writing Component from Georgia Standards of Excellence requires students to write about mathematical ideas and concepts they are learning. Students will be required to keep an Interactive Notebook. Daily Writings will be completed in class and graded as classwork.
Students will be performing learning tasks throughout each unit and will be responsible for fulfilling their responsibilities within the group.
I’m looking forward to a challenging but exciting year in 7th Grade Mathematics. Thank you,
