Welcome to 5th/ 6th Grade Language Arts!
I am excited to welcome you and your child to Marshall Math Science Academy! Your child will be a part of the Latimer Team, named after the famous inventor, Lewis Latimer. Your child will have the following teachers: Mrs. Miller for Math, Mrs. Shaffer for Social Studies, Mrs. Recher
for Science, and Mrs. Heisey for Language Arts. We
to promote strong study habits, rigor in learning, responsibility and
organizational skills. During the 2016-2017 school year we will use
materials to research and apply our acquired knowledge. Your child should come each day with pencils, paper and homework ready for a daily adventure!
Homework is assigned Monday through Thursday with some assignments
extending through the weekend. Your child will copy their assignments
down in a daily planner/ agenda. Reading a book of one's choice for
75+ minutes, per week, is highly encouraged and expected.
I look forward to meeting each of you and working together as your
child learns and grows. Your involvement and our open communication is
very important to your son's/daughter's success.
Please feel free to contact me by emailing or calling 703 - 1400.
