• Dear Parents/Guardians:

    My name is Orlando Abreu and I have the privilege of teaching your child Mathematics this academic year.  My goals for the 2023/2024 school year are for your child to enjoy learning while increasing and expanding their skills, to prepare for the NJSLA and to move to the 9th grade.

    I would like to work with you to ensure the success of your child this year. Please ask to see his/her homework, tests and classwork.  If you have any concerns, please email me Orlaabreu@paps.net or call/text my cell phone at 732-723-8787

    Middle School is a new challenge for adolescent growth. This is a time for children to become organized, make responsible choices and become aware of the consequences of their actions. If students are given a clear definition of what is expected of them, they will succeed in all facets of their daily life. I will treat your children with the respect of young adults and will expect them to respond accordingly. This discipline plan will provide students with a positive and safe classroom environment.

    RULES/ EXPECTATIONS

    • ARRIVE ON TIME AND BE PREPARED FOR WORK. Students are required to check Google classroom daily for assignments/ homework/ important information.

    • BRING ALL the LEARNING MATERIALS WITH YOU. A pencil, notebook, (for Math only) and folder must be brought to class daily. No pens allowed in Math.

    • BE CONSIDERATE OF THE RIGHTS AND FEELINGS OF OTHERS. DISRUPTIVE BEHAVIORS AND CONVERSATIONS DURING CLASS WILL NOT BE TOLERATED.

    • During instructional time, please no eating or drinking in the classroom.

    ***Failure to follow any of the above rules will result in a call home. If the behavior has not changed thereafter, the Vice Principal will be notified and disciplinary actions will take place. ***

    GRADING SYSTEM:
