    Welcome to the 2023-2024 School Year and the first year of Junior High School
    Dear Parents and Students:
    Welcome to the start of a new school year. I'm excited to be back on campus and getting to know each of you through our journey in English Language Arts and Humanities. Please take the time to review each tab on my website, which will provide a wealth of information. As I do teach both regular ELA, GATE ELA, along with Humanities; the homework tab will be a great source to break down materials for the day, along with assigned homework. This is a wonderful resource for busy parents. 
    Meet the Teacher night is scheduled for Monday, July 17th from 1:00-4:00 pm. Please access the AKI website for information along with the formatting of the evening. 
    Here is an overview of a few items:
    For all Classes: Need a 1.5- inch three-rinded binder (no zip ups), 5 dividers, ONE, several #2 pencils or refillable mechanical pencils, hand-held pencil sharpener, reusable water bottle,colored pencils,  ear-phones with AUX cable that can be used for Chrome Book.  
    Your student does not need all of his/her supplies for the first three days of school. Please be sure they have several pencils, a water bottle, a snack, and a written copy of their schedules. Phones are not allowed in our buildings, so a copy of the schedule is a must. This year, rules regarding phones, hats, and dress codes will be reviewed in the first week of school, which will  set the year off in a positive way. 
    Thank you for your time, patience, and assistance with getting the new school year off the ground. 
    If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to e-mail me at mwicks@kyrene.org
