Hello and welcome to the 2016-2017 school year! My name is Ms. Anderson and am brand new to Rippon Middle School. In the past few weeks getting to know the students, I am impressed with their hard work and desire to do well! This year in language arts, we will focusing on SOL(Standards of Learning) targets, corrective reading, grammar/vocabulary, and reading comprehension in our Expert 21 textbook.
This year Rippon Middle school is focusing on a standards based approach, to ensure students are achieving state standards for testing. As well. student will have the opportunity to re-take quizzes and portions of a test in order to show mastery and proficiency. Closer to unit tests, students will be able to attend review sessions after school. I will be posting schedules closer to our test date, as well as activity bus schedules.
Please contact me with any concerns or questions about the year- I am happy to help and talk about anything that you feel will held your child succeed! I want this year to be collaborative and supportive, and I look forward to working with you! :)
