Dear Parents,

It has been a great first week for middle school language arts.

On Monday I met your students, handed out the syllabus, got information from them about some of their likes, and sent home the parent homework sheet. Thanks for your quick responses. Tuesday we talked about books and I handed out the reading logs. All students should have picked a choice novel and be reading per the reading log directions. They will need your initials at least once a week. Wednesday and Thursday we dove right into our reading skills with thinking notes and strategies to stay engaged in reading.  Friday we wrote about our history as a reader.

Right now, the best way to contact me is email. I am always willing to meet via phone or in person. Contact me if you need a meeting and we will get something scheduled.  I will be posting homework on the middle school website.

I am thrilled to be at New Vision and look forward to introducing myself and meeting you at Back to School night Tuesday, September 13.

Looking forward to a happy and successful school year,

Cherise Packham
