Hello Again

Hello,

It’s been a great nine weeks thus far. I’ve gotten a chance to know my students and evaluate their progress, which will in turn help me to apply even more appropriate stratgies this next nine weeks.  These next nine weeks in sixth grade math, we will be covering expressions, one step equations, and inequalities. I look foward to the challenge of teaching my students these skills.  I thank all the parents who have been involved in making this a great year this far for your child and I.  Please continue to support us yb checking thier homework and helping them to study for all tests and quizzes.  Also, please check Pinnacle at least three times per week so you can keep up with your child’s progress, which will help them to achieve success in math.  Once again, thank you for sending your child to Griffin Middle School, I continue to look foward to working and communication with you in the future. Please review the second nine week syllabus at the bottom of this page.  Thank you.

 

Sincerely,

Tiffany Comer-Hull
