Welcome back to the 2019-2020 school year and to Mr. Gerow's 7th grade ELA class! If you are reading this during summer break, please be prepared for the first day of school with the following items:
- Binder Reminder/ Assignment Calendar (Yes, there will be checks for monthly completion)
- StudySync Textbook (given after the start of school)
- Silent reading book (grade-level appropriate)
- Paper (loose-leaf, lined, college-ruled pref.)

- Red pen for corrections
- A few highlighters (pref. 3 different colors)

If possible, please attempt to have your child equipped with the supplies listed above. If you are unable to provide these items or if you have any questions or concerns please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org (best/preferred contact) or 699-8138 X1505
How parents can help:
- Email me with any thoughts, questions, concerns at email@example.com (best/preferred contact), or call 699-8138 X1505.
- Check the Daily Assignment & Homework Calendar (found in the upper left-hand corner) often to see what we are learning and what your child's responsibilities are for this class.
- Keep your child well stocked with school supplies.
- Repeat step 1, repeat step 1, repeat step 1, repeat step 1, repeat step 1. You get the idea, but I cannot overstate how communication will prevent school stress for you, your child, and for me. The more we become united the more we will help your child develop the skills needed for this year and the years to come.
