This is my 21st year teaching in the WRPS district. I currently teach 7th grade Social Studies on Team 7A.
The best means of communication between parent and teacher is the classroom Google calendar and EMAIL. On a daily basis, students should also be recording assignments for all of their classes in their paper Agenda Planner.
I also use WRPS/Skyward email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Remind texting (for the 2014-2015 school year... text @sanger7 to 608-713-4573 to set it up) as the main methods of communication to students and parents. If you would like to speak with me, please call 715-424-6740 and leave a message including your phone number and the best time for me to reach you at that number.
