Grade 7/8: Ms. Truthwaite and Ms. MurrayOctober 12, 2022
Ms. Murray - Homeroom 101
Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year! I just wanted to write a quick note to introduce myself as there are some families that I haven’t met yet and for those that I have…Hello again!
My name is Marnee Murray and I will be your students grade 7/8 teacher this year. I have been teaching at William Whyte School for 5 years now and have taught grades 5-8. I love learning and am constantly looking for new ideas to engage my students.
I would like to share with you a few of my beliefs and values:
- I believe that my students and I are a team/family and our goal is to create life long learners in them.
- I am committed to fostering a safe and inclusive learning environment both inside and outside of the classroom.
- I value clear communication of expectations that will help set us up for success.
- I know that engaged learners who take risks and ask questions develop a passion for and in their learning.
As a team/family we discussed the roles and responsibilities of the students as well as the teacher in creating a positive and safe environment. As a class we identified the key elements to a classroom that fosters learning. This led us to develop our classroom expectations below.:
- Be engaged
- Be prepared
- Be open-minded
- Be respectful
- Be safe
- Be responsible
I am looking forward to an amazing year of learning. Here are some topics we will be learning about this year.
ENGLISH LANGUAGE ARTS:
I welcome open communication between my students and their families. If you have any questions and/or concerns, please feel free to contact me anytime by phone at (204) 589-4313 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Ms. Truthwaite - Homeroom 212
Welcome to our Classroom Webpage. My name is Jeanne Truthwaite and I will be your child's teacher for English Language Arts and Social Studies. I am looking forward to reacquainting myself with some of my prior students and getting to know and teaching others for the very first time!
A few things have been planned for the school year such as a visit to the Petroforms in the Whiteshell, a camping trip, as well as the Grade 8 Farewell. In addition to these teachings and outings, a full academic year has been planned. Below is a ‘Subject Outline’ for ELA and Social Studies.
