Research has proven that when parents and teachers
work together, everyone benefits: students tend to
earn higher grades, perform better on tests, attend
school more regularly, have better behavior, and
show more positive attitudes toward themselves and
Communication amongst parents,
teachers and students is very important
and allows us to work as a team. Please
email me with your questions or
concerns. I will make every effort to
reply to your email as soon as possible.

What are Honor’s Classes?
Fostering independent learning
More rigorous and in depth learning
Implementation of differentiation strategies at
different levels of complexity and with different
amounts of teacher support.

in on-level Spanish class, but completion requires
different levels of sophistication and a higher and
more challenging level of linguistic performance and
What the flip is a flipped classroom?
The flipped classroom constitutes a role change for
instructors who give up their front-of-the-class
position in favor of a more collaborative and
cooperative contribution to the teaching process.
There is also a change in the role of students who are
used to being passive participants in the education
process, where instruction is served to them. The
flipped model puts more of the responsibility for
learning on the shoulders of students and also
provides differentiation for those students.-Bobby Blount
