I will only have your student for a short time. As a result, I want to make a contribution that will last a lifetime. I want to be most effective by bridging the gap in communication from the classroom to parents at home. All homework assignments in Grades 7-8 REQUIRE parent signatures. I want you to become a partner with me in your student's education. Only the "Puberty Parent Interview" in Grade 6 requires a parent's signature.
The homework signature requirement allows an opportunity to educate your student based on family morals and values. Having support at home and lines of communication is an essential part of a successful school year and a great parent / teacher relationship.
