    Welcome to the 2021-2022 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 language arts. Please take the time to review each tab on my website, which will provide a wealth of information to manage 7th grade ELA. As I do teach both regular and GATE ELA, my homework website will always break down material for the day and nightly homework. This is a wonderful resource for busy parents. 
    Meet the Teacher night is scheduled for Monday, July 26th, and information can be located on our AKI website. 
    As this is a shorter time period to discuss a full overview, a short Powerpoint will be uploaded on Tuesday. A detailed list of supplies for my class is listed under a seperate tab on this site. Here is an overview:
    For ELA: Need a one inch, three-rinded binder (no zip ups), 3 dividers,  #2 pencils, and ear-phones with AUX cable (we will not have head-sets) that can be used for a Chrome Book.  
    Your student does not need all of his/her supplies on the first two days of school. Please be sure they have several pencils, water bottle, masks (optional) and a snack. This year will be very different from last year, and OLD rules regarding phones, hats, and dress codes will be reviewed the first week of school to help 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
    Your Partner in Education, 
    Melissa M. Wicks, M.Ed.
