Welcome to Mrs.Celik's Math Classes.

Dear Student and Parents/Guardians:

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you and your child to the exciting world of Mathematics and a new school year of 2017/2018. Your son/daughter is in my Math class for this year.

In this class everyone is expected to follow all the procedures and expectations. This is important in order for everyone to master the curriculum and be able to work with challenging and demanding material which will require higher level thinking and reasoning. To achieve success in this endeavor we will form a partnership of effort, cooperation, encouragement, and help, both at school and at home.

I will do my best to ensure that your child learns about Mathematics through problem solving, technology, and hands-on activities. You can help your child to be successful in Mathematics by helping him/her stay caught up with daily assignments, encourage good attendance, teach good study skills, and encouraging him/her to come and ask me questions when they do not understand something.

Please carefully review this syllabus, as it includes important information about new grading policy. Also, please read the expectations, policies and procedures handout along with new Standards Based Grading Policy. The expectations and procedures I have outlined are in addition to school wide procedures and policies which are listed in student handbook. All of above are designed to make this class run smoothly, safely, and efficiently. I ask that you and your child read this handout, sign and return last two pages of this form acknowledging that you are aware of Standards Based Grading and what is expected at school and in my math class. I look forward to a great year!

Sincerely,

Mrs Celik, M.Ed.
