Weekly e-mails/Carle’s webpage
Shortly after the school year starts, I like to send weekly e-mails out to parents and students. This e-mail gives classroom information about the week and sometimes for the school, and I attach the homework schedule for the week. If you would like to be on this list, please include your e-mail below. You can also find the week’s schedule, last week’s schedule, grades, weekly e-mail message and more at my webpage on the Aberdeen’s Website at HYPERLINK "http://www.asd5.org" www.asd5.org. You must go to Miller Jr. High School, staff, and then Laura Carle.
Please sign and return the form at the bottom with your child. This is their first assignment, so please sign and return ASAP for points. (This paper will be handed back.) If you have any questions or concerns send a note, call at 538-2100, or visit me at the school from 7:00-7:50 a.m. or 2:40-4:00 p.m.
