dear parent or guardian,

August 2015

With this letter I would like to introduce myself as your students


Math teacher. My goal is to make this year a successful and
rewarding experience. One of the most important steps toward
achieving this goal is to establish a clear line of communication
between school and home.
I am entering my 16th year of teaching and my 1st here at Reedy
Creek Middle. I am a North Carolina native, born and raised in
Tarboro. I attended college at North Carolina State University where I
earned a Bachelors Degrees in Mathematics and Mathematics
Education. I also earned a Masters Degree at the University of North
Carolina at Chapel Hill.
Your student will be busy this year. We will be working on mastery
of the 7th Grade (and parts of 8th Grade) Common Core Curriculum.
You can expect Math homework about two to three times per week.
If you have any questions about the information provided here or
about anything as the year progresses, please contact me. Email is the
quickest and easiest way for us to communicate. I will respond as soon
as possible.
I look forward to working with your student this year. I also look
forward to our continued communication and learning how to better
assist you and your 7th grader.
Sincerely,
Mark Mosley

What is 7+ Math?
7+ math is a course that prepares students for taking High School Common Core I in the 8th grade. It contains the 7th grade

Bathroom/Water
Fountain Use Policy:
Students are given an agenda during the
first week of school. In the back of the
agenda is a page which provides 9 passes
per quarter for students to use the bathroom or get water from the fountain. These
9 passes are in addition to the allotted time
during the change of class. Students should
use their passes and change of class time
wisely. Students must have their agenda
with them every day, every period. Exceptions to this policy will be made for any student who has a medical condition on file.
