PreAP English II
Ms. Kelle Spinn - Rm. 128
Dear Students and Parents/Guardians:
Welcome to the 2017 - 2018 school year and PreAP English II! I am looking forward to an exciting year as we work to become more effective communicators.We will read and write every day to achieve several goals:
Communication between teachers, parents and students is vital for student success. Please do not hesitate to contact me with questions or concerns. In addition, please visit my website to complete the Student/Parent Form as soon as possible. The information will help me to support your student throughout the year.
I will be using Remind to send updates to students and parents via text message about information occurring in class. I will use Google Classroom for most class assignments. Information for both is included on the next page and can be found on my website.
I’m looking forward to a great year!

Students may use tutorial time to have a quiet, comfortable place to study, request clarification on lessons or assignment, and/or discuss any concerns about the course. Students who need extra support mastering the skills to pass the course and the EOC exam will be asked to attend mandatory reteach sessions on Saturdays and/or before or after school. My goal is that all students are successful.
