“Children can be successful given the right encouragement and environment.”

Dear Parents,

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself since I will be working with your child this school year. My name
is Petreno Morris. I am a trained science teacher and it is my pleasure to be working with you as we partner in making
your child’s experience a successful one. I have outlined below, some suggestions that will make this possible. Please
review and discuss them with your child. These include:

         Being prepared for class each day.(Student should have a notebook, pens, pencils, folder paper, highlighter,
          a folder for handouts (calculator for chemistry)
         Review class notes each night, it would also be nice to read ahead to be prepared for class
         Complete all given homeworks and projects to the best of their ability. NB work must be neatly done.
         Daily participation and cooperation in class/ group activities.
         Prepare for weekly quizzes (content & vocabulary), and tests which are given twice per month.

Science Class Standards: Students grades will be divided as follows:

     Homework – 15%                 Lab Reports – 15%             Projects/Essays – 10%            Class Journals – 5%
     Exams & Quizzes – 40%          Participation & Attendance – 10%                               Class Portfolio – 5%

                              N.B one unexcused absence = 3 points off final grade
                               Every unexcused lateness = 0.5 point off final grade
Only medical absences and lateness maybe excused. A note from the physician or parent is required.

Contact me: The best way to contact me is through email – petrenomorris@msn.com or using the number above.

Parents and students must sign the slip below so that I know that you are aware.

Petreno Morris
