I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you and your child to 8th grade United States History (Pre 1492- 1877). I am looking forward to working with both you and your child to make this a successful academic year in Social Studies. I believe in an educational philosophy in which getting to know my students and working closely with their parents are essential aspects to a successful educational experience. Please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please read over the course syllabus that was sent home with your child. I also invite you to peruse the class web site at: http://www.mrgigliotti.com. This web site has been established to act as a 21st century classroom filled with the resources and the tools needed for high achievement this year in Social Studies. Please take a few minutes of your time to complete the survey questions below.
In order to help make your child a successful student this year in Social Studies, it is important for me to become familiar with your son or daughter's educational needs and background. It is especially important for me to understand both their strengths and weaknesses when planning lessons and activities.
Thank you so much for completing the questions below:
