     Do more than exist, LIVE.  Do more than touch, FEEL.  Do more than look, OBSERVE. Do more than read, ABSORB. Do more than hear, LISTEN. Do more than listen, UNDERSTAND. Do more than think, PONDER. Do more than talk, SAY SOMETHING.

     WELCOME 

    Welcome parents and students to the 2015-2016 school year.  I will be teaching 7th grade English Language Arts.  I am excited about teaching in the WSFCS and I bring seventeen years of experience to the English/Language Arts department. 

    The classroom is set up to encourage student-centered learning.  Your child will be responsible for his/her learning by way of working closely with me, small groups and individually in class.   My expectation is that the students will learn to help and support each other as they tackle a variety of tasks together throughout the year.  There will also be classroom assignments and homework assignments in both English and reading, notebook assignments, writing assignments and quizzes/exams. I will monitor your child’s learning in my classroom closely.

    PLANNERS

    The planner is where students will record their daily assignments, as well as upcoming quizzes, tests, projects, etc.  This will aid the student with organization. Students need to record their reading log in their planner each day with a parent signature.

    HOMEWORK

    Homework will be assigned regularly. It is important that students complete all homework assignments. Please check your child’s notebook/planner frequently for assignments and organization. Also, please sign your child's planner Monday- Thursday to prove that they have read for 20 minutes.  I will check their planner for signatures every Friday!

    TUTORING

    Tutoring will be available in my classroom on Tuesdays - Thursdays from 2:15-3:30 PM.  

    CONFERENCES

    If you would like to contact me, you may call the school at 336-703-6765 or e-mail me. My conference period is 7:45 -8:30 AM, Monday – Friday or we can make other arrangements.

    I look forward to a fun and successful year with your child.  If we work together, this will be a very successful year for your child.

    Blessings and Peace,
     
    Mrs. Alicia Cone
