Dear Parents and Students,

Welcome to a fresh new year of learning!
During the 2018-2019 academic year, I will be teaching Grade 8 Religion, Grade 6B Math, Grade 7 Math, and Grade 8 (each 90 minute classes).
In Math, the students will be working with a the series: GO MATH, which is a sequence of grade level modules focusing on the Common Core Standards. We will continue to use IXL Math in the classroom and at home for reinforcement and review. 
Please feel to contact me by email or phone with any questions or concerns.

Wishing you and your student many wonderful weeks of learning!
