Dear Students and Parents,

Welcome back to the 2011-2012 school year at John F. Kennedy Middle School.  My name is Mrs. Dolan and I am your 7th grade English Teacher this school year.  I am very excited about the upcoming school year and look forward to working with you.

My objective this school year is to help you learn, develop, and reinforce skills that will assist you in thinking critically, reading and interpreting a variety of texts, analyzing information, communicating effectively through writing and oral presentations, become better organized, and self-assess or reflect upon your own learning.  I provide my students with a variety of instructional techniques and activities to meet their individual learning needs as they master the curricular content expectations.

My class will  be difficult, however every student who puts forth the effort and works hard is successful.    Be prepared for class and participate daily.  Students who exert effort and take risks in class are successful.  “A ship is safe in a harbor but that is not why it is built.”  Ask questions, take risks, and LEARN from your mistakes!

I look forward to working with you this school year. If you have any questions, concerns or comments,  please feel free to contact me at school 934-6212 between 7:45am and 8:45 daily or contact me via email at dawcase@spsk12.net.



Mrs. Dolan
