Welcome to Hornedo Middle School, where you can proudly call yourself a Tornado. I understand your child will face many challenges in a new school community but I will commit myself to make this experience enjoyable and provide a safe learning environment for each student.
This year we will concentrate on a review of basic concepts of culture. Not only will I try to increase your child's understanding of different cultures and their historical significance but I will teach them organization and study skills as well.
I ask that your child bring a daily planner, supplies, and two interactive notebooks everyday. Listed below are the procedures for my class and guidelines for interactive notebooks.
The first interactive notebook will be used for class notes, to hold assignments completed in class, and used to study for quizzes. The second interactive notebook will be used for the News and Review portion of our class. Both notebooks will be graded.
All assignments are due on time. If an assignment is one day late it will be graded for a maximum of 70 points. If an assignment is two days late it will be entered as a 0.
I am looking forward to a wonderful year.
