Mrs. Durant - English I Parent Letter

Dear Students and Parents,

                I am delighted that you will be in English 1 this coming school year. Your presence in the class indicates that you are a bright, hard-working student. I am excited to get to know you and share wonderful times of learning and discovery together.

                English 1 will be a new endeavor for each one of you. This is a high school credit class. Therefore, the requirements are demanding and rigorous. I know that you are equal to the task or you would not be in the class. Because this is a high school class, it is structured as such. With the approval of Mr. Smiley and the Johnsonville Middle School administration, English 1 has added a summer reading requirement. You must read two books (one fiction and one non-fiction) from the attached list and complete the assignment for each book. This will be your first test grade for English 1. Failure to complete the assignment will result in a grade of 0. Please have the assignment completed and ready to be handed in on the first day of school. No late work will be accepted.

                I am looking forward to getting to know each of you. English 1 is a challenging class, but it is also exciting to learn together. Enjoy a safe and happy summer break. Please do not forget the reading assignment.

Please detach this section of the letter, sign it, and return this portion to me as soon as possible. Failure to return this section DOES NOT excuse you from the assignment as I know that you have received the letter. Thanks!

I understand that I (my student) am responsible for completing the summer reading assignment for English 1.
