Welcome to my online classroom!! I would like to extend a warm welcome to the 2018-2019 school year. My name is Mrs. Alma Garza. I am both eager and excited to work with a new group of wonderful students. I will be your child’s homeroom teacher and I will be teaching Language Arts (Reading, Grammar, Writing, and Spelling) and Math. Your child will be taught Science by my colleague, Miss Monica Hernandez. As a 5th grade student, your child will be filled with new responsibilities and challenges. However, if we work together, we can assure your child’s successful completion of the 5th grade.
Let me take this time to inform you about the importance of this school year. I am sure that many of you are well aware of the State of Texas Assessment of Academic Readiness (STAAR) test that your child will be required to take during the second semester. It is going to take a great amount of hard work, patience, and dedication to ensure student success. I know that with your help and guidance your child will master all of his/her goals and successfully complete third grade.
The following are some of your child’s responsibilities that can be achieved with your help:
Mon.-Thurs. – Red Polo shirt
Thursday – University Shirt (optional)
Friday – Royal Blue or spirit shirt. Only blue or black jeans allowed
**NO flip-flop shoes.
In closing, the students are my priority. I will do all it takes to help them master all required skills. If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact me at 716-6983 during my planning period (8:30-9:15). You can leave a message and I will get back to you.
Mrs. A. Garza
