Dear Parent(s)/Guardian(s):

Welcome to the new school year. I would like your child to have the best possible success in my class. To do this, your child needs to develop and adapt their learning to 21st century demands. This means, you also play a vital role in shaping your child’s education and I would encourage a team approach to aid your child to be successful in his or her education. The importance of mathematics holds great magnitude in today’s world. It is required for many college degrees and is ever present in almost all jobs now. The nature of mathematics trains the brain to think logically for essential problem solving skills. With this in mind, I would like to offer some free on line resources to guide your child to become a more self-directed learner and become more comfortable with using technology. The link to the parent letter is located below.
