(August 15 - 18, 2017)

Tuesday - Friday (8/15 - 8/18):
Welcome to Mr. Owens 7th grade English Language Arts at Rio Rancho Middle School! The first week of school will be spent getting to know all of my students, and for them to understand my class expectations and policies. We will also be spending time discussing how our year will look, the types of writings we will be doing, and the major linguistic achievements I expect of them.

Students will receive a syllabus this week that they are to take home and review with their parent/guardian. These syllabus packets will need to be signed and returned by Monday, August 21st for a small grade. Part of the packet is parent/guardian homework - it helps me, as your student's teacher, personalize my teaching process. Please take a moment to fill these out.

Please remember to check my webpage, calendar and google drive for updates to your student's daily agenda, classwork and homework! Thanks!
