Mr. V's Math Website
If you need to get in touch with me please do so by calling the school and asking for my extension or by writing me a note.
The best way to get in touch with me is to e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Remember to check this website for updates, grades and comments about any concerns that I have for your last year at our school. I have set up this website to help parents and students keep track of what is going on in our class. If you are absent from school, remember to check this website and download the lesson and homework that your class has been assigned for the day! No excuses!
Parents: One of the most important aspects of helping your child achieve success in our class is to communicate with each other. If you have a concern about anything, please do not hesitate to get in touch with me. The most successful education for your child involves as many people helping them as possible. If we work together positive things will happen. Please call me at the school, write a note or e-mail me anytime with any questions.
Students: The focus in our class early on will be to help you feel as comfortable asking questions as possible. You must ask questions if you are having difficulty. Please, I am always around to help you. I am available during my lunch hour to answer any questions that you might have. Believe me, I can afford to miss a meal!! I am looking forward to working with all of you in the upcoming year.
Parents and students: If you have any concerns, please email me and I will get back to you quickly. Part of making this year successful is keeping communication open with each other. Grades, homework and classwork will be posted on this site. If you are absent you can now keep up with what we did in class. If you are having a problem with this website, I need to know about it. Please email me and I will help you.
All of Mr. Viola's students are required to have a 1 1/2 to 2 inch binder with loose leaf paper for class. The pace of the 8th grade curriculum is quick and there will be numerous handouts to help expedite the learning process. A scientific calculator is required every day.
