Dear Parents,

Welcome to 8th grade!  I am looking forward to an exciting school year with you and your child.  I thoroughly enjoy teaching, and I am dedicated to making this an exciting and productive year for all.  I have high expectations of your child, as I am sure you do as well.  My ultimate goal is to inspire your child to become a life-long learner by helping him/her think critically.  Most importantly, become a responsible individual. 

Responsibility is a key element in determining the success of your child.  Let’s work together to build this trait in your child.  Your help and support will instill good study habits that will last a lifetime.

Parental participation will greatly enhance the success of your child and will also be greatly appreciated.  Please encourage your child to actively participate in the classroom, come prepared to class, and to turn in homework assignments when due.

Finally, let me emphasize that a personal goal of mine is to keep the lines of communication open.  Please, do not hesitate to call.  I am available to talk to you Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday  between 9:45 and 10:30 at 887-3060 ext. 827, or you can e-mail me at 

Welcome to the 2016-2017  school year.  Let’s have a great year! 



L. Casillas
