Dear Parents and Students,
Welcome to the 2020-21 school year! I am pleased to take this opportunity to introduce myself to you and welcome your student to the eighth grade at Murphey Middle School. My name is Mr. Tavias Bennett and this is my seventh year teaching at Murphey Middle School. My previous five years included teaching sixth grade social studies for the most part. I am making the transition to eighth grade. I will be teaching ELA and Georgia Studies.
We have many expectations for our eighth-grade students at MMS and I do as well as their teacher. One of the biggest is being responsible for assignments and actions. It is essential that you follow up at home with assignments, projects, homework, correspondences, and reinforcing positive behavior. At this stage in your child’s education he/she is beginning to become more independent and may not share most of the information with you. Independence is great and a goal I definitely encourage in my classroom, but your child’s educational success still demands your support. I write you this letter hoping to establish a partnership between you and I during this school year; which will result in a positive and successful school year for your student.
I am excited and look forward to teaching and exploring our area of studies with your student this school year!
