Dear Parent or Guardian,
My name is Mrs. Farquhar and your child is in my earth or life science class this year, I am excited about working with you and your child. I love teaching junior high science, it is my goal to provide all students with an educationally challenging, yet fun, experience in my classroom through a variety of instruction such as, classroom lectures and discussions, hands-on lab experiments, creating models and more.
I care deeply about my students and their academic success. I believe students can grow and develop by examining the issues we cover in class. Therefore, attendance plays a vital role in their learning as we cover a great amount of material each day. The material we cover in class is vital to your students success. Student's that have excessive absences miss the daily lesson and discussion. Unfortunately, I cannot reteach the daily lesson for those that are absent, although they are expected to obtain their work for the day(s) missed.
I have extremly high expectations for all of my students. I am asking for your help in maintaining those expections by checking and signing their agenda daily as this is a vital part of our program which keeps the line of communication open between teacher, parent and child.
If you have any questions or concerns, I am available for phone calls and meetings (by appointment please) each day after school. To schedule a meeting you may contact me via e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone 405-735-4640.
