We are all in this together. We are creating a dynamic learning environment together to help you Grow and Go out into this big wide world and Make YOUR Mark. I am looking forward to our journey through middle school mathematics together.
Students should be pouring through lessons 1 and 2 in their take-home packets this weekend! We will cover both lessons on Monday. Let's all make an effort to keep on track. Students should come to class with questions about the days assignments.
My name is Benjamin Hill. I have been teaching in the Medical Lake School District for the last 2 years, teaching across the west coast for the past 13 years. I enjoyed the community so much that I came back to work and raise my family here. I am very excited to work with your children throughout the school year. Please review this letter and sign it to return to me so I know you have reviewed it with your student. Some basics rules, expectations, communications, and supplies are as follows: School Rules: Students will not wear hats or bring backpacks to class No computer games or IPod/streaming music in class. Also refer to the Medical Lake Middle School link Student Handbook, Forms & School Supplies p. 14-15. Expectations: Students are expected to be in their seat ready to work when the tardy bell rings. When the bell rings at the end of the period, I will excuse students. When class has started, students are to be working at their seat unless they ask to get up. It’s simply good manners. Whether students are in the classroom or computer lab, there will be no games or music. Students need to come to class prepared- notebooks, textbooks, pens, etc. (this is very important) Parent communication: Grades are always very current on my gradebook. If you have questions, please call or email me. Grammar notes are posted on my webpage as we work our way through the parts of speech and punctuation. Assignments are also posted on my webpage and can be printed if lost or absent. Student supplies for class: 2 spiral notebooks Pens- blue or black are to be used for assignments and they should have a green or purple pen for correcting Student Planner A 3 ring binder to keep everything within. I look forward to working with you and your students in furthering their education in an ever-advancing global community. Sincerely,
Ben Hill Parent/Guardian Signature_______________________________________
