Dear Students in class 800, 802, and 819,
Welcome to Cunningham I.S. 234 8th grade Math and Algebra.! I am looking forward to the beginning of another successful school year and I hope that you are too! I would like to give you a little bit of information about my class.
Each day a new concept is introduced and practiced. Quizzes will be given once a week and tests will be given every two weeks. In addition, there will be exit or entry tickets to assess if you have mastered the concepts presented in class. The only way to study for a math quiz or test is to complete the problems presented in the daily lessons.
YOU WILL HAVE HOMEWORK EVERYDAY!! This will reinforce the concepts taught in class. If you are unsure about how to work a problem, ASK FOR HELP!! It is my job to help you understand, and I want you to ask me for help.
I expect you to come to class everyday with your homework completed, so if you don’t understand something, you need to ASK!! You are also expected to copy the assignment even if you had difficulty.
If you ever need extra help outside of class, you are more than welcome to come to my room after school on Tuesdays 2:30-3:00 pm.
I have very high expectations for all of my students, and I am excited about the challenges that the new school year brings. I look forward to the opportunity to have you in class, and I am anxious to get the year started on the right note. Remember, BE PREPARED and work hard and you are already on the right path to success!
