Mr. John Ferrise
Thank you for visiting my teacher web page. I hope you and your child find the content of our class curriculum to be both enjoyable and challenging. My goal this year is to see your child's reading and wiritng skills improve with each new unit. We will explore a number of genres and writing techniques in an attempt to expand your child's knowledge and interest in reading and writing. Be sure to visit eSchool to stay up to date on your child's progress. You may contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or concerns. I am looking forward to a great semester.
Parents and students,
In order to understand how writing assessments will be graded, be sure to review the rubric that will be sent home before each new writing assignment. Our goal is to see writing improve. Knowing what is expected in advance of the completion date will ensure that students not only understand why they received the grade they did, but also what could have been done to improve it.
Concerning materials for class, please have a notebook and something to write with you every day. All other material necessary for class will be announced well in advance.
Please check eSchool daily to stay up to date on hw assignments. Any missed deadline will result in the lowering of your grade.
