9th Grade

Freshman Year Timeline

A letter to the parents of Freshman

The purpose of the team approach is to allow teachers to better meet the needs of our freshmen students.  Teaming is built upon key elements such as standardized expectations, learning skills development, classroom leadership, technology use, and parent/teacher communication. The freshman teachers meet daily, twice each week with the 9th grade counselor and administrator. This planning time is sometimes used to meet with students and to conference with parents.

The following teachers make up the 9th grade team.
