Welcome to another year of your child’s academic career. Hello! I am Mr. Bowerbank, your child’s 7th & 8th grade IB Magnet Language & Literature teacher. I am so honored to have the privilege of teaching your child this year. I have planned many exciting and stimulating lessons for our classes.
There are high academic expectations in my classroom. I want to see everybody succeed and culminate. My goal is to equip each and every student with the skills, knowledge, and habits to thrive in their upcoming school year. Therefore, I will not only be teaching the IB/Common Core curriculum and assisting them in mastering all the state standards for this grade level, but will also teach them about humanity and the important place your child has in society.
Attached is the course syllabus that includes the course description, behavior expectations, grading policy, scale and materials needed for class.
Please feel free to visit your child's class and share your questions and comments with me throughout the school year.
You can also call the Magnet Office and set up a conference with me.
Please feel free to also sign up for text or email reminders.
