Dear Class of 2016,
Hello and welcome to Eighth Grade. Hopefully you and your family have been enjoying your summer. I am happy to have you in my class and look forward to the many wonderful and exciting subjects that we will be learning this year. This year will also mark a significant milestone for you in that at the completion of this year you will all be ready to move on to High School.
I want you to know that I am here for you! I care very much about each of my students and it will be my pleasure to help you learn and grow in your love of God. Please know that you can come to me with questions or concerns at any time during the course of the year. Helping my students to be the best they can be is very important to me. I know that you are very capable of success and will do your best to prove yourself successful in all you do.
I hope that you are as excited about the first day of school as I am. If you are able to come to school on August 31, you will be able to take some of your books home to get them covered. Make sure you have as many school supplies as possible on the first day of school. Your class schedules are already posted on the school's web site. If you would like to e-mail me please feel free to do so and also check my website for updates.
Best wishes for a successful year and know that I will be there to help you along the way. Enjoy these last few days of summer vacation and I look forward to seeing you all very soon.
God Bless You,
