Welcome to a brand new year at Jean Childs Young Middle School. Under the leadership of Dr. Kelvin Griffin, we have planned a very exciting year for you and your children. We believe Every Child is a Gifted Child and we strive to assist students in discovering their gifts.
In Language Arts/Reading, we expect our children to become proficient and avid readers, skilled writers and listeners, self-motivated learners, and creative and critical thinkers. We also expect our children to develop an extensive and useful vocabulary.
This year we will supplement our instruction with a plethora of resources provided by Prentice Hall Literature. Nevertheless, the complete needs of the child for all aspects of communication will be met by tailored lessons, full integration of technology, and standard based learning.
The provided course syllabus gives a detail overview of the expectations of our 6th grade Language Arts/Reading students.
Please contact me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or concerns. If you wish to schedule a conference, please call 404.802.5900 or email me directly.
Thank you and welcome!!!
