Dear parents and students,
My name is Tara Chaddock and I will be the 8th-grade math and science teacher, supporter, and motivator for the 2020-2021 school year. I look forward to navigating the upcoming school year with you and helping everyone be successful as we embark on this unique journey together. You’ve worked hard to reach your 8th-grade year and all the fun that is involved with being the school’s upperclassmen and I congratulate you on that achievement.
This is the start of a different, but productive school year. Please know that for this to be a successful year students will need to exercise maturity and responsibility. This means that they are expected to successfully meet certain expectations, including excellent attendance, punctuality, maintain good grades, and demonstrate self-control. While we are distance learning students will have a daily routine as if we were in the classroom, which will make for a smooth transition when we are able to have students on campus. Students will be meeting with me for math and science and Mrs. Stringer for ELA and social studies where we will be having daily class periods with direct instruction and student independent and group work time. Not to worry! I am here to guide you both parents and students through the eighth-grade experience and I promise that I will support you as best as possible for you to obtain positive results.
I am very enthusiastic about the time we will spend together at Parent-Teacher Conferences, appointments, functions, and school events. We will strive to keep our communication line open! Therefore, please feel free to contact me at email@example.com, on the Remind App using the class code @tchaddock, or (530) 346-2202 ext. 421.
I am confident that together we will continue to work hard and be consistent as you prepare for high school. I look forward to that beautiful day in May when you march across the stage to receive your diploma celebrating your success. Looking forward to a productive school year!
