    Dear Parents/Guardians,

    Welcome to the 7th grade! Seventh grade is an exciting time as students embark upon new adventures in the world of learning. This is a year of important transitions, as well as one in which acquisition of new skills are accelerated. I hope to make your student’s learning experience a fun and exciting one, and I hope to instill a love of learning that will last throughout your student’s years of schooling.

    So much happens in Seventh Grade! Because of this, the year will be full of important transitions. It is extremely important to keep in mind that we all build on small successes. Each student will progress at his/her own rate, acquiring skills as he/she is developmentally ready. Maintaining each student's self-esteem and building a secure foundation for future growth will always remain a priority in our Seventh grade. Here are some ways you can help:


    * Celebrate your student's success, no matter how small it may seem. This will keep your student enthusiastic about learning and proud of their work!


    *Parent/Teacher Relationship

    I believe that a good parent-teacher relationship is necessary for maximum school success. Throughout the year I will communicate with you through e-mails, telephone calls(texts via Remind 101), quarterly reports and parent-teacher conferences. I encourage you to contact me if you have any questions or concerns at any time. You can call me at school, send me a note or e-mail me (bryan.shelton@henry.k12.ga.us). If you are interested in helping in the classroom, on field trips, or would like to eat lunch with your student at school, you must fill out a volunteer form.

    *Discipline

    Establishing good classroom discipline is essential to each student’s success, confidence and well-being. Every student should feel that the classroom environment is safe and secure; free from all threats of physical or emotional harm. In addition, it is important that each student learn to develop self-discipline and good work habits, to resolve conflicts peacefully, and to think independently.

    Again, I look forward to teaching your student and working with you to help your student achieve their fullest potential. Please don’t hesitate to contact me.

    Sincerely,

                                                                                        Mr. Shelton
