WORK PROCEDURES

 

  • Every other week, I will pass out a printed summary of the work for the next two weeks.  This will summarize both the homework and the classwork for the two-week period. 
  • If you are absent on the first class day of the week, pick up the summary when you come back to class.  Copies will be available on the windowsill.
  • You may also download the summary from my web-page, accessed through Anwatin’s web page.  (Go to teacher pages, 7th grade, Ms. Athorn, or go directly to http://anwatin.mpls.k12.mn.us/Ms_Athorn)

 

PARENT INFORMATION

  • Parents can find out what is happening in English by asking to see the student’s bi-weekly work summary.
  • If necessary, a parent may download the work summary from my web-page (see directions above).
  • The best way to contact me is by email, which I check regularly, but if you have no access to email, voicemail works as well.
  • Please feel free to contact me at any time about your concerns about your student’s learning:
